World Cup considers horn ban - World Cup News - FOX Sports on MSN

Another great place for hearing protection. To wear ear plugs is going to not only save your hearing, but also keep you fresh. The noise saps your energy. It makes you fatigue more quickly.
World Cup considers horn ban - World Cup News - FOX Sports on MSN World Cup organizing committee head Danny Jordaan on Sunday did not rule out banning vuvuzelas, the noisy plastic trumpets that have proved a hit with fans in South Africa but threaten to deafen players and viewers alike.
Criticism of the vuvuzelas has been almost as loud as the instruments themselves with broadcasting companies complaining the din is almost drowning out commentary.
When we were at the Olympic games in Beijing, there were times when it was loud. But, the noise in South Africe seems much greater given these horns. In China, the chant was "JGy-oh" -- to mean 'get gas' or 'show energy.' (My spelling is not accurate.)

FIFA has already ruled that they won't be banned. I support that ruling. It will be seen by the South African people as yet another attempt by White Europeans to squash Native African tradition and culture. The FIFA organizers can come up with some kind of compromise that will allow the horns but maybe put limits on when they can be played.
