The Great Vuvuzelas Controversy

Anyone watching the Confederations Cup over the last week or so can't fail to have heard the continuing, defeaning drone coming from hundreds, if not thousands, of plastic horns known as Vuvuzelas.

These are, apparently, extremely popular among South African football fans. However, such is the incessant din produced by this horns, that players (well Xabi Alonso anyway) have complained it knocks their concentration while broadcasters have asked FIFA to ban them.

Right now, Sepp Blatter has refused to countenance such a move and so that's that.

To those people complaining about the noise of the Vuvuzela I say this : Don't worry, regular South African football fans can't afford to attend the 2010 World Cup so it's not going to be a problem.
