The Crowd Scores

Professional sport has been making its return over the past few weeks. In the English Premier League, Liverpool finally achieved there deserved goal of the championship win (with Manchester City promptly tackling the party).

What has not returned however is the crowds.

In Australia, the NRL has made up for the lack of crowd with noise effects heard more in sport computer games.

It almost works. Mainly when you’re not considering how silly it is.

Yet it does let the side down with how lonely it sounds without the noise.
