Just heard from Guinness World Records. We are ok to make another attempt on MNF if the fans & organization want. #Volume12â Joe Tafoya (@JoeTafoya) October 15, 2013
The Associated Press reported that the Chiefs paid $7,500 to fly an adjudicator from Guinness to Kansas City to document the effort. The same adjudicator -- a man named Philip Robertson -- measured the noise for both record-setting crowd performance in Seattle.
Said Robertson: "They destroyed any Premier League hopes of attaining this record, I can tell you that, and I'm a Brit that loves the Premier League. It was extraordinary."
That was the most British quote ever on NFL.com. Possibly the Internet.
