What a superb addition to the world cup watching experience. It's so nice to listen to these beautiful musical instruments buzzing in your ear for 90 minutes.

Default Big Hooters

I want to watch most of the England -Australian games. I do watch soccer once every 4 years.

One drawback.

The constant bloody sirens and hooters I can hear in the current Gre-Kor game a real pain. A real distraction.

Coupled with moronic chants I can see no way out...

Yeah I think it is one of the most annoying features of this world cup.

On the the other hand if they showed a few big hooters ever few minutes, I could tolerate the noise

I watched a match last night and honestly thought it was a broadcasting error! If you're an ear doctor I'd be getting over there and setting up pretty soon, it'll be a licence to print money.

You would think they could wire some of those noise cancelling headphones to the microphones, The horns although they blow just plain suck

Im all for atmosphere but its something I want to breathe not listen too.

Rugby's on. No Hooters (of any type).

I honestly think sometimes soccer is a child's game. I want to like it, really like it, but they make it hard.
