I don't want one. I just like the word.
I love the sound. How sad that they are not allowed in some venues. But then again, I am the sort who always brings my own earplugs...
I was thinking it might be the Portuguese word for "vulva", then I saw it was about a horn. Right idea, wrong gender.
I love them!
And trust Hickboy... :biggrin1:
What are you talking about?
They're a pain! It's a constant buzz like a flock of bees.
You can't hear the crowd cheering at all, and it distracts the players.
I like it - must be annoying for the players tho, I agree. I'm even more partial to the supporters' brass band that follows England around, hehe.
I want them banned! I can filter out the footballness and commentary from the background TV, but that constant drone dives me mad after about five minutes. God knows how the people actually there cope with it.
And while we're at it, can we please ban those fucking whistles from the Notting Hill Carnival? I mean, there you are trying to groove to the rhythms in the street and some moron is going Peep! Peep! in your ear?
Fabulous word though - VUVUZELA!
My thoughts exactly. If I had to listen to that for an entire day, I'd turn into a drunken hooligan flipping cars and breaking shit, too.
ABC World News just did a story about this. They said they sound like hornets on steroids. 127 decibels worth of noise would drive me crazy.
Absolutely detracts from the viewing/listening pleasure of these games
BAN the bloody things .. for ALL Matches
NZ had a similar thing with Drums from the Islands beating all the way thru the local/Aussie Warriors Rugby Leauge Games..drove folk CRAZY...they stopped it
I dont know how on earth those visitors who have paid to get into the venues
can stand the racket..
Can only assume FIFA dont want to lose face' by selling the items and then banning them as well?? ha..idiots to allow it to dominate the Commentaries tho
Ear plugs anyone?
Oh come off it. You think every fan loves to hear stupid, pseduo clever songs that English fans sing? What if I hated Samba music and drums, should we ban them from Mondial 2014 in Brazil?
If anything, they add an element of intensity to the games, like it's a battle rather than a 22 man fall-like-they've-been-shot-from-a-slight-touch-overpaid-sissy-boys kickabout. If you don't like going to world cup games with them blaring, sell your tickets. I know dozens of people who would take your spot and go to the game without complaining.
Gimme your ticket and I'll gladly go to any of the games, even with real hornets in the stadion :biggrin1:
Hate the noise. It's a drone, not musical by any stretch.
Huh, I thought it was a country in South America, or maybe Creole for an obscure reflexive command in French do so something lewd to yourself.
African music is so vibrant and life enhancing. I can't believe we're getting this awful noise when we should be getting the intoxicating rhythms of Africa.
It's a horn mantra. If the fans wanted they could make 'waves' like they do with rising and sitting, only made of sound.
It's ruining the World Cup for me. And no, I am not an England fan.
Call me old fashioned, but this is the World Cup, when I watch Switzerland, I want to hear the cow bells, when I watch Brazil, I want to hear the samba, I'd even rather listen to USA USA, or In gurrr land, than this awful monotone drone.
Variety is what it's supposed to celebrate and this is supposed to be the Rainbow Nation hosting. The fucking thing is shit shit shit.
Thank you, Rant over. Till the next game. :smile:
Fine. They can blow them all they like at the Sweden matches :biggrin1:.
