    Definitely been a lowering of the crowd volume by broadcasters since the start of the tournament, so they're more tolerable. Shame too, since the crowd and atmosphere is one of the best things about the sport.

    I'm actually starting to like them now, purely because everyone watching on TV is kicking up such a fuss over them.

    Its your usual noisy stadium, just a different noise to what we are used to.

    TBH, its the Africans themselves wanting to be lumped together with all the pre world cup talk of doing it for Africa, making Africa proud, the African World Cup etc etc.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Indeed. Every African nation going out means less vuvuzela noise because they support each other. Plus they all generally play poor, negative and unattractive football.

    Well you'll have to ask Nancy, but if she's game I don't see the harm in a three way.

    Getting worse imo because the entire crowd sounds like they're trying to co-ordinate it, as opposed to just each one of them blowing randomly.
