The fans may not be there but the sounds could be.*

*locally relative to the speed of internet light,of course.

Fake crowd noise at stadiums divides fans https://www.nytimes...ns-crowd-noise.html
This is already a thing... [kdf, Aug 25 2020]

       This is already a thing, and people like it (or not) as much as canned laughter overlaid on comedy programs.

       Nothing faked here*, just digitized pure verbal emotion.   

       *Well maybe some lazy fans or the far away ones, tech savvy enough, to need those extra microseconds in response time.

       Let me see if I have this right ... game is streamed live, fans watching it online cheer, all of those cheers are aggregated in as close to realtime as possible and played back through the stadium loudspeakers?   

       I like it, but foresee a problem with lag, pumping the audio from thousands of networked viewers into the stadium quickly enough. Guy hits a home run, the cheers don’t start until after he’s done rounding the bases? Ump makes a bad call and the boos don't start until the next inning?

       There is already full video-crowd (conference call, sort of) during NBA games. See linky.

       It is a fight against time and 300 is not that many but technology can only get better and the speed of light is pretty quick. 8G?

       [+] but you might want to have time delay word recognition and muting. Can you imagine? "OK, it's the bottom of the ninth, tied game, bases loaded. The crowd is absolutely silent..."   

       (from the virtual crowd) "SHIT FUCK TURD COCK ASSHOLE!"   

       (announcer) "Well, not everybody is silent."   

       There would probably be people who tuned in just to swear anonymously. Not just a few, I'd say... a solid 10% of the audience? You might even get groups chanting stuff together that rises up over the din.   

       OK, you could distort the individual inputs in such a way that just a generalized roar would be heard but no discernible individual words. A "word grinder" where a sample of the sections of the word are broken up into say, 4 parts and randomly put back together. You'd have to have it be random because people would just learn to swear in mixed up segments.   

       God, when did I get so cynical?

       Just assume a joe or jane Tourette's and marvel at the complexity of the human race.   

       Or, more realistically, the system just has to have 'crowd' levels of input, making an individual's say inaudible. A lot of friends would then be needed to synchronously swear. The system still has to allow chanting and singing.

       //A lot of friends would then be needed to synchronously swear.// That sounds like a blast. I'm not sure why it's not done in live stadiums.   

       How to prevent advertisers from spamming it?

       Ah, a hard one. A large number of paid people are needed so prisoner dilemma payments, in other words dobbers?
