The concept of using artificial noisemakers really applies to players, coaches, etc. It is very difficult (and perhaps fruitless to attempt to control that type of behavior by the fans. My gut tells me to just play on. If it becomes so onerous (such as if it becomes impossible to hear the whistle) then game management needs to deal with the situation. According to the rules, a T can be charged to the home team which is responsible for the behavior of the fans, but this is rarely an action that should be taken. Generally it just makes the situation more volatile and encourages more problems with the crowd.
