The New Orleans Superdome is known for being loud.
On Sunday, during the NFC Championship game between the Saints and the Los Angeles Rams, loud was an understatement.
Those asking about the whistles from the crowd on saints/rams game. The Saints have a super fan nicknamed “whistle man” .. no joke .. have met him many times, great guy. He wears a whistle costume to games. He has the loudest, most piercing natural whistle I have ever heard.

Something in the crowd, however, was driving TV viewers bonkersâan incessant whistle being blown at all times during the game.
Twitter exploded with outrage from viewers who just could not deal with the sound.
I'm all for crowd noise, but whoever's blowing that annoying whistle should be drawn and quartered

Turns out, the sound is an infamous Saints fan, the “whistle man,” who was in fact, making the ear-piercing sound with nothing other than his mouth.
