I don't think FIFA would have simply ignored that if it such a grave danger.Erm, you were the one moralising it in the first place with some irrelevant point about a subject that you clearly know next to nothing about.
It's not like the fact that they are annoying is that the only real oppostion people have to them. They drown out potential safety announcements and could potentially cause hearing damage to people in the croud, basically they could potentially be in breach of health and safety regulations. Fine, if you you are a South African football fan that goes to some local match, then you don't really have much of a right to complain, but there are people who have spend £1000s on getting to the WC who had no warning of the noise, who have had the experienced ruined by that infernal drone.
I just don't see why because it's 'traditional' means that it's somehow scared and can't be critisised or banned.
FIFA not to ban vuvuzela
Overblown imho.Van Schalkwyk, whose Cape Town-based company Masincedane Sports, has been making vuvuzelas since the late 1990s, said he had sold over 800,000 in South Africa.
More surprisingly, he said he had also sold 1.5 million units in Europe, home to the horn's fiercest critics.
