Artificial crowd

artificial robots that can jump yell and wave flags controlled by phone

Phone delay is very low so the robots will be almost responsive in real time with hardly any latency.

The robot is paid for and you get to see the game from its eyes. The most important part is that it shows your face on the screen, and you can see yourself at the field. You control it during the game. If you do nothing it just yells the slogans with the default. You can whistle and even send in advance your shouts.

Pay extra for louder and more aggressive versions, and for custom set messages (which are checked and approved by the ACrowd monitoring administrators)

       So this would allow people to go to sporting events without, ah, going to sporting events?

       Not just sports; this could be used for not going to concerts, lectures, meetings ...   

       Telepresence is Baked, but a lookalike humanoid animatronic avatar isn't implemented outside movies & books.

       ...and by extension, lookalike animatronic avatars ARE implemented in movies and books? So... WTCTTISITMWIBNIIWR?   

       On halfbakery as in real life, customs are more honoured in the breach than the observance.

       Trump rally for the ones where the software has gone haywire, and the hydraulics connected back to front? (he wouldn't even notice the difference)

       Isn't this already in development, with a fleet of MelaniBots that appear to have slightly different customised builds... longer tibiae; squarer teeth; larger kidneys... but all running the same firmware version?
