    Its a shame there are no members from the Waikato of New Zealand to comment on the vuvuzelas with regard to their cowbells at Chiefs and Waikato matches...

    I think it should've been obvious to everyone that our defense kept stopping because they thought there was a train coming. Should be a national inquiry I think.

    On the contrary, I quite like them, and I hope FIFA have the balls to stand up to all those Europeans who are calling for them to be banned....

    Of course because it's only Europeans that are calling for them to be banned. I reckon there are probably loads of people world-wide (and probably some people in SA) that haven't gone to the games because they can't stand the dire noise they make. Why should people have to put up with them just because they it's some tradition to stand there for a whole game and blow some stupid trumpet like a moron all day. So dire.

    Well, more fans on caribbeancricket.com like them than dislike them....

    This is a South African World Cup. If they want vuvuzelas in the stadiums, then they should be allowed to have them there.

    If you don't like it, turn off the TV, or switch to cricket, or tennis....

    That's the problem they're dealing with though...people probably are turning off because of the terrible noise they are making, which is hardly what the organisers want. It's all well and good to say they should have it because they want to etc. etc. but at what cost does it come?

    The idea of banning them does seem a bit, "We're going to come into your country and tell you how to watch your football", tbph.
