I find them really annoying at times, but when the game is good I focus on that instead and forget them.
What's more annoying are morons with laser pointers, who point them at players during a game.
I'd be more annoyed if I couldn't hear the thud when someone kicks the ball because of the noise.
Furthermore, the best noise made by spectators during any sporting event is that at alpine skiing contests.
Chief organizer: Trumpet ban possible
"We can't sleep at night because of the vuvuzelas," Evra said. "People start playing them from 6 a.m. We can't hear one another out on the pitch because of them."
Jordaan said organizers are doing everything possible.
"We've tried to get some order," Jordaan said. "We have asked for no vuvuzelas during national anthems or stadium announcements. It's difficult, but we're trying to manage the best we can."
It is honestly the most annoying thing ever for me while watching, but god damn this vid is funny.
That video is pure genius.
Those are the best seats Nick Cage could get? Didn't he tell them he's a Coppola?
It would be awfully futile and silly to try to enforce anything.
It is a pity that a lot of the national flavor from the chanting and singing is basically washed out in a monotonous drone.
I could not care less about those things in the stadium ... but now some kidz here in the neighbourhood got their hands on some of them ... and boy is it annoying ...
Isn't the name vuvuzela inherently obnoxious and flamboyant in and of itself when all we're talking about is a friggin' horn.
but it fits though. They make equal anoying sounds. The Vulvas I mean. When they fart.
Maybe one could make a "vulvuzela", a different version, to make the sounds in this very special occasion.
And your hatred for soccer and "false patriotism" (which is hardly limited to the World Cup) has what exactly to do with the thread?
On topic: Those things are incredibly irritating and I have no idea why any rational being would chose to get one and contribute to the monotonous buzzing that drowns out all other noise during the matches. It should be a felony to manufacture, distribute, or carry one of the devices.
But couldn't one play it like a buegel?
An orchestra of Vuvuzelas... playing the national anthem. Imagine that!
How do Cornetas look like?
Do we have to prepare for the same sound/noise during the next World Cup in Brazil?
the sound is pretty similar a normal (metal) cornet, but its made of plastic. I couldn't find any video in youtube to show you though :/
And well, usually the crowds do much more noise than the instruments over here. The cornets and whistles are only noisy outside the stadiums
I watched a bit of the South Africa vs. Uruguay match today, and I don't mind these things too much, I guess. I don't understand why they have to blow them continuously throughout the entire match, though. Why not save it for a goal or some other exciting moment? It sounds like a swarm of angry bees.
If I were going to a match there, I would bring a trumpet or a coronet and blast away.
The vuvuzelas make me think of a baseball game that took place in Detroit about 15 years ago. As a promotion, the first 5000 fans to enter the stadium got a free baseball. The baseball was contained in two hemispherical pieces of clear plastic. After a short time, the fans figured out that if they turned the hemispheres back and forth in opposite directions, the friction would make a really annoying squeaking noise. Everyone with a free baseball made that squeaking noise through the entire game.
This could be thé solution for all German soccer-fans:
Oh man I am so glad that the Finnish TV company that shows all the matches here decided to censor the vuvuzela voices (by disabling certain frequency voices). It's not working at 100 % efficiency, but it's still a lot less painful to the ears to watch the matches.
Some funny photoshop stuff.
