Dumbest statement ever

"A lot of players don't like them [3 foot long toy plastic horns that go off at eardrum shattering decibels], but they are going to have to get used to them."
- Cristiano Ronaldo, midfielder, some World Cup team or other.

Uh, Cristo, WHY do you "have" to "respect them?" Is this a politically correct pass to some uncivilized 3rd world hell hole's "culture?" The FIFA head, whose name I forget, and don't feel like bothering to look up, said something equally as stupid.

Can we be blunt here? Subjecting people in working conditions [i.e. the players] to a condition which can damage their hearing permanently is inhumane. If these vuvuvenzuela blowing savages want to jump up and down and dance naked around their mudhuts, then so be it. But how hard is it to confiscate these damn things from people entering the venue? So help me, if I am ever put on a jury where someone is accused of shoving one of these things up someone else's backside, I would not vote to convict.

Hey, you vuvuzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzela blowers, it's not all about you. Stop being attention whores.

I hate those horns too. Can't even watch the game while those things are blaring.

I watched about the same amount of time too. I love the whining from FIFA. Geez, guys, how hard is it to confiscate these things at the turnstyles. They don't give it up, they don't get in. simple!

There's a reason why air horns are banned in stadiums. Duh!

Seriously these suckers create 127 decibels. Your hearing WILL be wrecked. not "may be in danger" but WILL be affected. Sheesh.

Long time ago, a former co-worker of mine had been stupid and had gotten ****faced at some rock concert and passed out in front of the speakers. almost deaf in one ear as a result and the other ear badly affected. Imagine having to play 90 minute games (plus warmups etc) with this racket. It's no joke, players should flat out refuse to play with this stuff.

The sponsors can't be happy if people are turning off sets etc.

I think people just like to say "vuvuzela".

Angela. Agreed. It's like something a hooker would call her own hootchie-kootchie.

That's a nice little racial stereotype. Perhaps they should be confined to their mudhuts. Fancy a bit of apartheid?

Augustine, anything that separates vuvuzela blowers from society would be a good thing. And that includes the ones of ALL colors. In my never to be humble opinion, ANYONE of whatever color who blows something that ear shattering within range to damage someone's hearing IS a savage. Trousered Apes, if you will, if that's not an insult to apes.
