After watching a couple of games, it's just background buzz.

Laughing Never thought I'd see this as a question for the 'Tank. Very Happy Y'all have got nothing to complain about...you only hear them on the TV. I have people blowing the damned things outside my bedroom window (well practically) at all bloody hours. You have it easy. Laughing

(That said, I wouldn't care if they were banned, but it's not gonna happen.)

(Oh, and the company that makes them has already sold 1.5 million in the UK...expect them on the terraces before too long Brits... Laughing )

I voted to ban, I hate them. I like when the drums are going throughout the game, but can't stand these horns.

null, no one needs your whiney US nonsense. It's the Beautiful Game, not baseball or football.

I voted no because most people seem to be voting yes. I want to tie it up like a soccer game!

EDIT: Hey, at least 2 of you said you were yes but only one actually voted yes. I sense a conspiracy here!

I didn't vote, in case you were counting me. Very Happy Don't care either way. Still, would prefer drums like 'Weez said.

Z, it's a cheap, mass produced plastic trumpet that emits a sound like a distressed goat, at an ear-splitting 127 decibels.

Allegedly a "traditional" part of local soccer tradition, it actually only started showing up about 10 years ago. We could easily live without them.

The vuvuzela keeps the rowies from being.. too rowdy.

and until there are confrontations with vuvuzela gangs then its no problem.

Bann them when they put the mega-amps on the things.

The horn may be the most entertaining thing about soccer. Frankly I can't see why any sane person would sit around for three hours and watch a bunch of guys run around a cow pasture while scoring no points.

guess I get the red card Razz

If your TV has an EQ, drop the 266Hz and 425hz bands. There are also some interesting ways to run your tv's ausio through your PC to lower the buzz.

After a few matches, I found that it didn't bother me at all anymore. Then again, I am a bee-keeper. Wink

Laughing I suppose a bagpipe player wouldn't have a problem either, then.

Ur-Bane, have you seen Cameraman Jenn's bee pictures in GenDisc? She and a friend are in the process of setting up a hive.
