Poll: Should vuvuzelas be banned from the World Cup?

If you’ve watched a single minute of this year’s World Cup then you’ve noticed the obnoxious blowing of stadium horns known as vuvuzelas.  These things make a sound that leaves you wondering if the seven plagues have begun.  There’s no question that it distracts from the television viewing experience, and I can only imagine actually having to hear these things in person.  Anyway, the blowing of these horns has become quite the controversy as announcers and players alike have expressed their frustration with the noise.  Frenchmen Patrice Evra went as far as to blame the vuvuzela for France’s poor performance (of course he is French).  On the other hand, it’s tradition.  So the question is, should South Africans be able to practice their own tradition on their own soil, or should we put a stop to this foolishness?

    it’s tradition and if they tried to stop it there would be chaos. it’s not hurting the game play and as far as I’m concerned i’d mix have loud jovial fans blowing horns and dancing than rednecks holding up Austin 3:16 signs in front of me, or uppity hipster douche bags drinking pbr and golf clapping

  2. Or thundersticks which were somehow a hit in America for a significant period of time

  3. Vuvuzelas are so nosy that makes all the atmosphere on the public disappear. There is only a constant noise. No songs, no rummors, nothing. The public makes the sport but this is not the case if all you can hear is vuvuzelas.
    I watch the games with the sound off cause I found them really annoying.
    You can find on websapce a lot of articles from funny to sad, pro and contra vuvuzelas.
    I’m against. I even created a facebook event against them http://tinyurl.com/2u2k5tk

    Keep quiet please! 🙂
