Vuvuzelas are the horns that make the loud buzzing sound heard in the coverage of the World Cup.

Apart from being annoying to many people watching on TV, players have complained they can't hear each other talk on the pitch, and the use of the things outside the stadiums at all hours is giving them sleepless nights. They also drown out the singing and other forms of musical expression that give World Cups some of their atmostphere.

On the other hand, they are a big part of South African soccer culture.

It seems there is a possibility that they might, after all, be banned from stadiums.

Would you be in favor of such a ban, or is it interfering too much in the way South African fans normally behave?

These bots are getting to be pretty good.

Anyways, I hope the vuvuzela is brought to America and played at our stadiums. :)

1. Yes they are!

2. The vuvuzela sounds very much like something that would be described as something in the nether regions of a female? :think:
(That makes me all for it! :D)

I finally watched part of a match and unfortunately we lost in OT, so my soccer watching days were short. However, that annoying noise in the background would have limited my ability to watch much more. It was like a pissed off bees nest the whole time. I was expecting to hear chants and things like a rugby match, and maybe even catch some hooligan action - I was very disappointed, both with the match results and the crowd activity.

BTW - now I remember why I cant stand to watch soccer - the fake injuries are really annoying.

Ban them! A moron authorized a vuvuzela give away at a recent MLB game and came under fire by irate fans. These horns serve no purpose whatsoever. A woman at the World Cup ruptured her throat blowing on one. Senseless.

I think opposing teams should issue their fans vuvuzelas before every Miss State game.

But then collect them on the way out. Letting those things loose in society would increase the murder rate ten fold.

I heard that. . . .Vuvuzelas makers have now redesigned the horn in a bid to prevent FIFA from banning it in stadiums after many complaints from fans and broadcasters saying the level of noise from the South African traditional instrument is ruining the World Cup. Hope this sound is only for cheering up , not to trouble people.
