Quiet please.

Some sports are fussy. Golf and tennis tend to be sticklers for quiet. In basketball, football, baseball, the crowd munches on food, slurps drinks, shouts, waves towels and makes noise--raucous noise.

A basketball player is fouled and when he stands in front of the basket attempting to make the two shots awarded to him by the ref there's noise. If the player is not a member of the home team then fans will attempt to do everything possible to destroy concentration.

Perhaps it's a different fan base. What's the crowd like at a polo match?
