Where would that kick in? In the stadium or outside like in the broadcast studio?

They are annoying when I was watching one of the earlier soccer matches today one of the commentators said that the vuvuzelas might be banned because sometimes the players cant hear each other.

I mute the tv during every match. It's just too annoying. I wonder how many people just change the channel and watch something else instead. I'm just glad I"m not in the stadium.

If you're a true soccer fan then you'd watch the game no matter what.

Yes, and FIFA seriously considered banning them after the tournament. They should have...

I HATE that totally annoying sound!! But I watch the matches and don't mute it. We considered going to SA for the cup but now I'm glad we didn't. Not worth damaging my hearing.
