Thank you 12th Man!
Were you there? Was it as loud as it seemed to us?
Today, we wanted to let you know how important crowd noise can be to the home team. Listen to what Dave Krieg, Slick Watts and Steve Hauschka have to say about #Volume 12!
Are you ready for the World Record Cheer?

Winning isn’t everything, but it beats anything that comes in second. – Paul “Bear” Bryant
The countdown begins! Sunday night’s game on September 15th against the 49ers is right around the corner…. as is the Guinness World Record attempt at loudest crowd cheer.
Here at Volume 12, we’re so excited we can hardly contain ourselves. We’re thrilled to be able to give the 12th man the opportunity to compete for the loudest crowd cheer. We view this as a chance for the 12th man to compete right along with the team on the field. We know there are other fan bases out there that believe they’re the loudest. This is a contest that isn’t decided on Facebook or on chat boards or via Twitter. This contest, like football, is decided at the stadium, under the lights, with the help of the teammate next to you. One crowd, one voice, one cheer!
If you’re going to the game on the 15th, we hope you’ll do your part to lift us to a world record! If you don’t have tickets, please plan on joining us at the Official Volume 12 Tailgate Party. Tickets are $25 and you can buy them here! Even if you are going to the game, buy a ticket and come do the best pregame ever with us at the Pyramid Alehouse, with swag bags, food and drink specials and select Seahawks alumni! We’ll be projecting the game onto the big screen on the outside of the Pyramid Alehouse, thanks to our friends at Redmond IPic Movie Theaters! We think you can cheer loud enough to help out the fans in the stadium! And yes, earplugs will be provided! A portion of the proceeds for this event will go to the Hearing Health Foundation!
Come help your team and your fans kick football butt!
With our attempt at the Guinness Book of World Records coming up, decibel levels are definitely on our mind here at the Volume 12 Blog. We know we’re the loudest stadium in the NFL and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to prove it once and for all!
However, we have to admit, we’re pretty concerned about the noise level and the potential for loss of hearing. Our volume needs to be above 130 dB in order to achieve the world record, meaning we’ll be approaching painful acoustic trauma at 140 dB. While the 12th Man takes pride in losing our voice for a few days after each game, we also tend to minimize the effects of the volume on our auditory nerves. Here at Volume 12 Blog, we wouldn’t want anyone to experience hearing damage during a Seahawks victory.
Ironically, there is one Seahawk player that won’t be bothered by this level of noise and that’s Derrick Coleman, who is essentially deaf, having been able to hear only sounds and tones since age three, when his hearing mysteriously began to disappear. The reliable Coleman, who won Mike Robinson’s starting fullback position on the team, utilizes hearing aids and an uncanny ability to read lips to adapt to the point that many who know him forget he’s deaf, and many who meet him don’t realize it unless they are told. Coleman says his hearing loss appears to give him an edge when stadiums get especially loud and players have to rely on hand signals and other non-verbal methods of communication. He says he makes sure to ask quarterbacks or teammates a second time to assure he understands the play if it’s unclear. And he simply has to keep his eye on the center snap to know when the play begins.
As much as we admire Derrick’s coping ability with his hearing loss, Volume 12 Blog believes we need to protect our own hearing at Seahawks games, and particularly at the September 15th game, which we know will be incredibly loud! With that in mind, we are proud to have partnered with the Hearing Health Foundation to support their efforts against hearing loss. A portion of our proceeds from the Official Volume 12 Hear the Cheer Tailgate Party will go to the Hearing Health Foundation to help fund hearing and balance research.
Additionally, we send out a huge thank you to our friends at the Hearing Speech & Deafness Center in Seattle along with 3M for donating earplugs!!! We will be passing them out all around CenturyLink Field next Sunday before the game! Be on the lookout for the Volume 12 team prior to the game. Of course the best way to find us is to buy tickets for the Tailgate Party!
Let’s be loud and let’s be safe on the 15th!
