A group of Seattle Seahawks fans—known as Volume 12—have petitioned the people at Guinness World Records to have the crowd noise monitored at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field during the team’s home opener on September 15 against the rival San Francisco 49ers in the hopes that the 12th man will break the record for “loudest crowd roar at a sport stadium,” currently held by the supporters of Turkish soccer club Galatasaray S.K.
The loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium was 131.76 dbA and was achieved by Galatasaray Spor Kulubu (Turkey) at the Ali Sami Yen Sport Complex Turk Telekom Arena, in Istanbul, Turkey, on 18 March 2011.
A peak reading of 131.76 dBA was recorded during the Galatasaray SC v. Fenerbahce SC derby game at the Ali Sami Yen Sport Complex Turk Telekom Arena on 18 March 2011. The record was attempted by Galatasaray SC fans. The sound level was measured from the side line of the stadium. Distance to the crowd was 2 meters. They were given 3 attempts. The first attempt was at 20:50 pm, it measured 112.08 dbA. The second attempt was at 21:03 pm and measured 130.55 dbA. The third attempt took place at 21:15 pm and produced a reading of 131,76 dbA. A notary and one witness (sound engineer) were present. The precision measuring noise level meter (certified and calibrated) was a Bruel & Kjaer 2250 RAM DT-8850.
Considering that the rowdy Seahawks fans once caused an actual seismic tremor during a Marshawn Lynch 67-yd touchdown run in a playoff game against the Saints, breaking the “loudest crowd at a sports stadium” record should be a piece of cake.

I’m a Seattle Seahawks fan and hope Darren Fells turns into Tony Gonzalez, but I’m not taking that emotion into the fantasy football draft with me.
I’m not a fantasy football genius, but I’m not as dumb as I used to be. I’ve been playing for six or seven years now. I once dropped Brandon Jacobs at 3AM thinking he was Brandon Jackson. I once picked a backup quarterback...
After a pretty strong rookie season in 2012, the Seattle Seahawks plan on moving defensive end Bruce Irvin to outside linebacker, according to Eric D. Williams of the News Tribune.
The West Virginia product led all rookies in sacks last year with eight as a part-time player coming in at defensive end in passing situations. But Carroll plans on moving the 6-foot-3, 245-pounder to...

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman thought he would have some fun and invite former NFL replacement referee Lance Easley to be the umpire at his charity softball game.

I’m sure everyone remembers the incident during the Green Bay Packers-Seattle Seahawks game where the replacement referees called a touchdown on a play that shouldn’t have been a touchdown. At a recent charity softball game, Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate was photographed with the replacement referee Lance Easley that called the play a touchdown. Tate, as you may recall...

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman hosted his annual charity softball game today. He also made a move that is probably similar to kicking a Packers fan in the shin. Among other umpires was the ‘fail mary’, ‘shameful’, ‘Seattle Screwjob’ culprit, Lance Easley. He was one of the replacement referees in the 2012-2013 season during the NFL referee...

On September 15, the Seahawks will open up their home schedule against their now-hated divisional foe, the San Francisco 49ers. There's no doubt the stadium will be rockin', but just how loud will they be? Thanks to the fan organization Volume 12, we'll know.
