Insert them somewhere unpleasant .it's bad enough trying to hear some reporter tellling you what a dam iritating noise they make while standing in the middle of a crowd If I could be induced to spend time watching it would not be many seconds before I went for the off buton Only another 2 games to go before they are knocked out then the news will get back to anything but football I hope.If monkeyball has to be on the sound gets turned right down .

Annoying as they may be initially... I have got used to them now - and the monotone din they create.

It's a home African nation making thier own sound and making it unique to the 2010 World Cup. Who are we to say they should shut up ?

England supporters have thier own drum beaters and trumpeters present within the crowd as well ;) trying to reply to the buzzy bee sound. Maybe as the tournemount progresses - the Vuvuzelas' will become less intense.

Yeah I too find the noise irritating and if given the possibility of having the noise reduced without losing the rest of the soundtrack I would choose that option, but there's no way I would expect them to be banned.

The pair I get to play with have the same effect, but are big enough to use as pillows so I don't have to move far ;) :D =))

Everyone I know with an "I" anything (obviously fahion victims ) has that app. How sad. One of my colleagues brought a real vuvuzela into work. They are bloody loud. Needless to say, he didn't use it for long. He walks funny now. [-x

I think they are lovely, I can't believe people don't like them. I think we should use them to wake people up in the morning with peaceful music :)
