07:31 PM ET 09.14 | As if the upcoming matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks didn't have enough hype surrounding it, the Seahawks are upping the ante. Seattle will be calling upon its "12th MAN" on Sunday in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for loudness at a sports stadium. According to the team website, crowds at CenturyLink Field have produced roars upwards of 112 decibels - or pretty much the same amount of noise that a Boeing 747 makes. The current record was set at a soccer match in Istanbul, Turkey, in 2011, and sits at 131.76 decibels - or louder than a Boeing 747, which is typically around 130.

That will be drowned out by the sound of Harbaugh's whining.

You would kill to have a coach as effective as Harbaugh.

Totally agree with you.

But that doesn't change the fact that he's a whiner, does it?

I think the "whiner" thing is waaaaay overblown and is primarily the byproduct of jealousy. Does he complain to the refs? Of course. Most coaches do. Does he try to get an edge wherever he can. Again, yes, but that's part of what makes him a great coach. I'd venture to guess that the vast majority of his detractors would love him if he were their coach.

Now you're whining about Harbaugh's "misconceived" whining. Perfect.

There are times when WWJ is as much a homer as anyone else.

Who would have guessed that Turkeys are the loudest fans on Earth? C'mon Seattle, you can beat those Turkeys

Seahawks might want to score a few points while they're at it!

Go 9ers.

I agree, but WWJ is like most fans, he is a very passionate sports fan. There is nothing wrong with that. Aren't we all "homers", in one way or another??

Without a doubt.

But WWJ is an objective fan.

Whining while winning is not really whining. It is still always winning. Harbaugh has got it made these days, and everyone knows it
