    I think they have rejigged mics or those guys got tired of peepeeing all the time. I can hear crowd cheering better now.

    Some guy worked out that you could selectively drown out the vuvuzela sounds to a great extent by completely turning down the 300 kHz setting on the audio equalizer, cause that's the frequency they operate at. I guess thats what the TV stations themselves are doing.

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

    So if the vuvuzela is a traditionally African thing, what is with the massive over sized glasses that I see people in the crowd wear? An Elton John Appreciation Society?

    Africans have a harsh combination of poor vision and big eyes.

    Why is everyone here assuming that the morons blowing this "made in china" (I don't know what is South African about it) product are South African? By far the most "vuvus per person" have been amongst the Portugese fans.. I've heard about six in the crowd even in the England v Australia cricket..

    Its simply people who want to sit and watch a game in peace, versus people who don't care if there are people who want to sit down and watch a game in peace..

    Its been a massive stain on the world cup, obviously, but I'll take that because pretty much everything has been run very nicely.. (apart from the refereeing but thats not our fault)

    This.. I have no idea what South Africa has to do with Ghana.. Can you imagine the English fans being told to cheer for Germany now because they are "doing it for Europe"?

    What a load of ****

    You denying there isn't a kinship among Africans though? Because that's being naive.

    You can't claim the same with Europe. Especially England and Germany.

    It's similar with Asia too. Plenty of my mates from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia were hoping South Korea did really well.

    When I lived in Singapore in 2002 the whole nation was behind South Korea.

    heh, could just have seen OZ fans getting behind NZ if they got any further in the tournament. They're the 'nice' Aussies.
