Wpr, you hit the nail on the head with your entire post!
When you wrote about the 2 great plays on first and second down, then giving up a big play in third....that is something that has gripped me for years! I can’t count the times I have seen that happen.
If you can’t perform on the field, a stupid horn isn’t going to artificially get fans excited.
When I first heard it in my TV, I thought maybe they were having technical difficulties.
If we have to copy the Vikings for anything, something is seriously wrong!
Make plays on the field, and the fans will get excited. You don’t need any tricks. Give them a real reason to cheer!
