Chiefs Fans Break Seahawks Record, Seattle Fans Might Regain It

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

It took the Kansas City Chiefs fans four attempts to break the world record set in Seattle a few weeks ago against the San Francisco 49ers but it appears that they have in fact done it.

 

Before the fans get too comfortable calling themselves the NFL’s loudest fans, they should know that Seattle has plans to regain the title.

Chiefs fans reached 137.5 decibels late in the fourth quarter of a win over the Oakland Raiders, breaking the record of 136.6 set by Seahawks fans at CenturyLink Field in September.

Undaunted, Joe Tafoya — a former NFL defensive end now known as The Seahawks‘ Crowd Noise Organizer Guy — wants another crack at the record books. – NFL.com

Chiefs fans set the record by 0.9 decibels and they can be sure that Seattle’s 12th Man will be ready to top that effort on its Monday Night Football game against the Saints.

If you remember, the Saints are the same opponent that came into Seattle and fell victim to the famous BeastMode run that propelled the Seahawks into the second round of the playoffs the same year they went 7-9. The Seahawks were the first team in NFL history with a losing record to make it into the playoffs.

    We’re Not having it! And if it does happen, we’ll regain it against the Donkeys!! #ChiefsKingdom

    • Logan Grace

      Except the official record judge will be in Seattle that week

      • Kali Chiefs

        True. But, id think it be smart to get them out the day of the Chief vs. Donkey game. Its going to be the most anticipated game of the season! Best D vs. Best O! #GoChiefs

        • Logan Grace

          I don’t believe that they will come out to arrowhead for us to break our own record

      • Pete

        So you think there’s only one official judge?

        • Logan Grace

          The same judge has been the one to declare the record at both stadiums, so I assume that he would be used in any future attempts.

          • ArrowFan

            false

          • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

            Agreed

  • Bryan Staley

    Difference is…….
    Their stadium was built to hold in the noise…….Arrowhead Stadium is wide open!! Sorry Seattle fans, Kansas City fans win this one!

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      We’ll see. We will see. :)

  • Luke Seidl

    It only took the chiefs fans one try to beat the record…

    • skeletony

      FOUR tries. They finally got the record on the last attempt late in the 4th quarter. IIRC The Hawks only got 3 attempts to set the record. In any case 0.9 decibels will be easy for the 12th man. It is always easier when you have an actual number to shoot for (as K.C. did this last time. Fans knew they had to hit more than 136.6 and were getting updates after each attempt, just as the Hawks were.).

    Sounds like somebody needs a nap, give us chiefs fans some credit instead of acting like a little biatch Paul

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Uncalled for Roc.

      • Roc

        But it’s true, instead of giving the chiefs fans credit he is basically making excuses saying it took 4 attempts and it doesn’t mean a thing cuz the Seahawks fans will most likely break it. I’ll change my wording he’s acting like a baby. Give the chiefs some credit Paul, the record is ours

        • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

          I don’t think he said anything to warrant you coming over here to start cursing at him. He, like you, is just a proud fan that wants his group to get the record back.

          Just because we’re on the internet doesn’t mean it is cool to go around swearing at people who total strangers because they said something you don’t like.

          • Roc

            Yes you have a good point, I apologize Paul that was very immature of me

          • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

            No worries. Like I said… I lived out there and I know how awesome KC fans are and how much they care about their team. I expect them to defend their team when it is attacked or not given the credit it deserves.

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      I lived in KC for a few years when I was stationed out there and Chiefs fans are easily ONE of the loudest and most loyal fanbases in any pro sport. But… I’m loyal to the Seahawks and from my experiences with both, the 12th Man won’t let this record reside in KC.

      You guys can, and probably will try to recapture it later in the season but I’d think it would be too high to beat.

  • skeletony

    I am going to make a prediction right here and I will make it a bold one: The 12th Man will hit 139 decibels and this time the record will stick for more than a year.

    • Shayne Ross

      Doubt it. If anything, you’ll barely beat the current record, and the Chiefs will just break it again, causing this long chain of back and forth record holders. It also just depends on how good you play against Drew Brees and the Saints. Hopefully, if your “12th Man” doesn’t regain the record, you’ll just accept it and move on. But more than likely, you’ll just waste 7,500 more dollars in yet another childish attempt at a meaningless record. The only records that matter are 9-0 and 9-1. Honestly I think it’s stupid to try and break a record after it broke your record.

      • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

        If the roles were reversed and the Chiefs originally held the record, with the 12th Man breaking it, would you be saying the same thing?

    Wrong article this comment was posterd to.

  • ArrowFan

    It only tool one attempt and to be honest I don’t your stadium should be considered an outdoor stadium just because it has a large window in the top of it.

    • http://emaraldcityswagger.com/ Paul Novak

      From every report I have read, it took FOUR attempts. And I think you have the wrong stadium in mind because there is no window on top of CenturyLink Field. It’s an open air stadium and rain falls not only on the field, but a good chunk of seats too.

      • ArrowFan

        Sorry I was confusing attempts with games. But you guys do have a giant window in the ceiling of your unfinished dome completely different architecture. Sure yours was built specifically to enhance crowd noise (or keep the rain off everybody) but either way I don’t think you can call your stadium and outdoor stadium. Now the field, it is in the outdoors but the stadium most defiantly is not. Either way good luck with taking back the record.
