Group of Chiefs fans wants to turn up volume at Arrowhead

Loudest stadium in Seattle? Not if a group of Chiefs fans has anything to say about it.




Congregating in a newly formed Facebook group dubbed Terrorhead Returns, the fast-growing cadre of red-and-yellow-clad fans is hoping to counter a group of Seahawks backers who are attempting to get CenturyLink Field into the Guinness Book of Records as the loudest stadium on Earth.

Quoting from the Terrorhead Returns page: “We have submitted an application with Guiness (sic) World Book and will request the permission from the Kansas City Chiefs and the NFL to be given a fair chance to put the record where it is truly deserved. Join in Chiefs Fans! GO CHIEFS!!!”

So far, the Seattle contingent, which goes by the handle “Volume 12” (an homage to the team’s “12th Man” legacy of fan support), is a step ahead of KC’s. According to a post on NFL.com, the Seattle group announced on its own Facebook page that its application to have the decibels measured at the Seahawks’ Sept. 15 Sunday Night Football showdown with the San Francisco 49ers has formally been accepted by Guinness.

The official entry would be dubbed “loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium.”

A website in Seattle, SeattlePI.com, reports that the current record is held by the Ali Sami Yen Sport Complex Turk Telekom Arena in Istanbul, Turkey. The decibels measured that day? An ear-splitting 131.76, or slightly louder than the sound of an airliner at takeoff. The Turkish fans were cheering on a soccer match played by Galatasaray S.K.

Size of the venue could factor into Seattle’s Sept. 15 bid: NFL.com reports that the highest decibels recorded at the so-called CLink peaked at 112, but notes that the Seahawks’ home digs hold 67,000, or 14,000more than the Turkish stadium.

If size matters, and if Terrorhead Returns can get a date with Guinness — and if Chiefs fans can fill it to capacity — Arrowhead could play a huge factor in a record bid. The venerable Truman Sports Complex venue holds 79,451, or more than 12,000 more than CenturyLink Field.

But Terrorhead Returns, though just launched Friday, has ground to make up in terms of likes on its Facebook page. As of 8 p.m. Tuesday, it had 1,830 members compared with 6,263 likes for Volume 12.

Guinness just confirmed this group as going after the record. They have to beat 131.7 dB.

I love it that they are trying to bring back home field advantage-plus helping some local charities in the process.

SAVE OUR CHIEFS needs to get behind this. That was the whole point of the movement to bring back the Chiefs to respectability?

My first inclination is a BIG no. Just look at the feedback on this in the thread alone.

Even if we were to win, which I sincerely doubt we even crack 115db, it would be a hollow and meaningless victory. It is one thing to hold the record because the fans are into it and are just out of their minds with emotion for the team... it is a completely different thing to "manufacture" the sound just to get in a stupid world record book. Especially when it a reaction to Seattle doing it first.

Too many factors going against KC here:

1) CenturyLink was designed to be a madhouse of noise.
2) prices are wayyyyy to high for anyone outside of the whine and cheese set to sit anywhere lower besides the upper deck.
3) Not enough young idiots to be loud and act like hooligans.

Bandwagoning has nothing to do with this. That word has become so bastardized... A bandwagon fan jumps on board ANY team that is successful at the moment. Just because someone expects to see results before they go and get overly excited does not make them a bandwagon fan.

No, no it doesn't. Just because it did at one time does not mean that the title is autmatically ours for all of time. We lost it. More to the point, the franchise lost it when they kept trotting crap out onto the field.

To be honest I am very disapointed with this. They are picking either Home Opener or Faders game- so there won't be one thing Manufactured about it. The fans that started it- X factor I believe- want to get the home field advantage back. All through the 90's Arrowhead was the "LOUDEST STADIUM IN THE NFL." It wasn't just one game it was a decade and even into the DV years.

It is a shame my kids and this generation don't realize what it was like to be a part of that.

And a handful of Eeyore- Alex Smith- haters on here don't represent the Chiefs fans at all. It started on Sunday- I think I was one of few hundred people to join- now it is 4,000 strong. It just made the paper and other media chanels.

I thought Save our Chiefs was about restoring our team back to respectability- and it worked. It was a Negative campaign to fight a Negative system. Now you have a chance to do something Positive for the team and the community-including charities. It is bringing much needed positive attention to the Chiefs.

I hope you reconsider your stance on this.

Yes we did lose it- and you are absolutely right. But it is time to get it back. Screw the Seahags. Most of them don't even know what it was like when their teams came in here to the Loudest stadium and were beat up on. I was there when DT was setting the sack record against them- yes we ended up losing on a fluke play when he barely missed another sack- but the place was electric and I will Never forget it.

This is more than just some record-it is setting the tone for the whole season. Chiefs are Back!!

If you see the post on facebook- the "REAL FANS' you guys make fun of on here. It is a stark contrast to the "fans" on the planet. They are posting pics of their families, basement bars, telling stories about their favorite games and are excited to bring back Arrowhead. It is far different from the cess pool of negativity on here. Maybe after you see the Chiefs kicking ass this year- the fans bringing back Arrowhead and having fun at the games again- you guys will join us.
