Falcons Lose 5th Round Pick

The NFL finally punished the Falcons for pumping crowd noise into the Georgia Dome in games during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Their punishment was a $350K fine and have had their 2016 5th Round Pick revoked. The Falcons director of event marketing, Roddy White, was fired for pumping the noise. This is not to be confused with Wide Receiver Roddy White. Earlier this week it was announced that the NFL’s punishment would be “severe”, however the Falcons seemed to be catching a bit of a break here, as a fifth-rounder is pretty lenient.
