And finally, vuvuzelas have been banned from stadiums, due to Tv broadcasters complains.
I really dont mind the noise, but I'm pretty sure people there was sick about them, heard about people with really bad headaches, and about players struggling to hear their coach instructions.
Also, do we have any links for this? I can't find any specifics, only speculative articles referring to FIFA, and we know what sort of an organisation FIFA is, as has already been mentioned.
Admittedly, a lot is lost in the coverage via vuvuzelas that could generally get people going mad for the World Cup, but it's sad that if this is true, that they caved in for TV demand. It's sad that that drives sports at the end of the day. Eh, don't mind me here.
Some comments in British papers have been particularly xenophobic: 'Who let the locals in?'
Yeah, this is why I don't like my country holding international sporting events.
