    The worst friggen marketing gimmick since the early 80's Packy Packman. I don't care if it came off The Edmund Fitzgerald. Make that POS gone now! My god can THAT make Pack fans scream and yell on 3rd down better than actually stopping them on 3rd down?

    Thing sounds like a communal fart.

    I agree so much I’m commenting again. I thought my kids were messing with the big garage fan again and was getting ready to yell at them when I realized it was coming from the tv

    It should never be played again

    I was wondering what that noise was. I thought it was an imitation of the thing the Vikings have.

    Then the fans need to get off their butts and get louder.

    I agree. I admit, if people are sitting, so am I.

    when we're on offense. I don't sit or shut up when we're on defense unless they're in a commercial break. I have noticed recently we seem to have 2 types of fans, drunker than **** and could care less about the game and those who used to watch the games like that 30+ years ago and now mostly sit. With the rest of us sprinkled about the stadium.

    I'm probably in the minority but I have no problem with the horn. Other teams use whatever means available to give their team the advantage. I will wait a few games before I make a final decision.

    It's really sad when they have to posts "Get Louder" signs on the light boards.

    I haven't heard it, but most of what I've heard is pretty negative. They need bikini Packer Girls to run around to get the attention of the drunks and produce a lot more noise. One lucky raffle winner gets to take a bikini girl home. I've got ideas, man.

    I was at the game. However it sounded on TV, it was ten times worse at the game. Whoever's idea this was needs to be fired yesterday.

    I didn't hear it either watching on NFL Game Pass. Were they blowing this thing with the Packers on defense? After Houston broke the huddle?

    Hardly. Maybe it was edited out of the telecast. Lucky you.

    The fog horn is a pretty lame way to get fans fired up. This incarnation is more likely to make them sleepy.

    I heard it a few times watching the game locally on NBC. It wasn't obvious what it was, took me a bit to figure out it was actually coming from my TV LOL

    supposedly when they were on D, on third downs, much like the way min uses their annoying horn which you can't NOT hear. i watched the game live and never heard it. couldn't be heard on the replay either. so...it must not be very loud...thus my "it must be a pretty lame" comment.

    This reminds me of the G-Force crap that the Packers tried to roll out a decade or so ago. If the team can't get the fans excited, then maybe the Packers should focus on the on-field product instead of manufactured sound. One could also argue that the price of tickets has changed the complexion of the fans in the stands. Less real Packers fans are able to get into the stadium while the well-healed elites sit out there and mindlessly watch the game while checking their work emails.

    Either way, I am 200% against manufactured noise unless there are sousaphones and accordions involved.

    i'm an old but this is due to the olds that dominate the season ticket population. if a younger crowd were there there'd be a different energy in the stands.

    I just re-watched the game on NFL Network's replay. You can clearly hear the horn at both 2:05 and 0:31 left in the 2nd quarter.

    If they pay me, I'll sneak behind fans with an air horn. That'll get them off their feet even faster

    Instead of the fog horn, it should of been a long slow opening of a can of beer played real loud.

    I did too. Why in the world would we want something that sounds like what the Vikings use?

    My wife walked through the family room to her office when the thing went off. She stops and said, "What was that? You think that's funny?" :cautious: See, women never fart - they just sit near dogs that do...

    Now, if I had dropped one on a leather recliner, it would have been a helluva lot better than that foghorn ostensibly off of the USS Green Bay... and I'd be proud to own up to it. I felt cheap saying it came from the speakers.
