Not getting the horn...

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)
Not the security at the hotel where four Australians got robbed at gun point in their room :dry:

Hahaha, brilliant.

On the vuvuzela issue, I thought it would be worthwhile pointing out that Eden Park (and Westpac Stadium) have both banned instruments including vuvuzelas for the Tri-Nations matches at those venues - the first Tri Nations match is this Saturday and reportedly they'll be confescated if the spectators try to bring them into the ground.

Quite right too. Without the whole African culture thing there's no reason to allow a few ****ers with horns to melt everyone's **** off.

(****er isn't in the filter? Hmm.)

Or the 400 fans who didn't get to watch the Durban semi final because there was no parking at the brand new airport.

Mind you, crime has, apart from that incident and some journos getting robbed, been fairly well managed here.. Violent crime has dropped by 70% in the month of the world cup in Johannesburg and Pretoria.. Its pretty rubbish how SA has the potential to decrease crime by 70%, but would rather do it for FIFA than the 43 million people that actually live here. No doubt things will be back to where they were after Sunday..

Could just be that 70% of violent offenders are rabid football fans. Probably some correlation there.
