Tonight's Topic : Should Air Horns be banned ?

Russians are renound for them, those gastly air horns.

Should they banned inside stadiums ?

They make the atmosphere sound absolutely awful and dont achieve anything apart from proving your fans are quiet ones and cant create a decent atmosphere.

Thought Id never say anything like this, but here goes... think about the people who have to sit next to these people and want to watch it in a slight bit of peace, without some cretin pressing down the horn.

Rugby finals used to be spoilt by such horns, you got no sense of atmosphere from the tv and they banned them. When you hear them on TV it actually makes people turn over too ! My dad is one of them... whenever i watch a game with him, he has to trun the sound off and put the radio for commentry because its so damn annoying.

So heres to all the "fans" who take horns into a stadium... FVCK YOU!

Agree or disagree people ?

Probably smash my head in with them and then press down on the horn to make my brain malfunction.

Id be willing to be a martyr though if it meant they were banned!

i'm very annoyed with whistles from the crowd. i sometimes confuse it with the referee this tournament :frustrat:

why are supporters allowed to use the same instrument as the referee anyway?

Air horns are an abomination that needs to be vanquished. I normally don't condone violence, but the muppets who bring those things to the stadium need a good hooligan beating.

The same goes for all kinds of instruments, unless you're African...and maybe drums are alright for Brazilians... :undecide:

My nephew was threatening to use one in a hotel lift with a few Italians after an AC Milan match a few years back. The Italians got a great kick out it....

He had already used it in the Milan city centre earlier in the evening. I hate those bloody air horns...

I'm a facebook member but I rarely/never log in.

So how about creating a terrorist network whose purpose is to obstruct the manufacturing and commercial sales of air horns? :undecide:

Yeah while were at it, let's rip out the vocal cords of all fans that enter in the stadium as well. That should quiet things down real nicely. Sheeesh....

I dont want to get rid of all fans sound (i.e singing), quite the opposite.

I want to promote it, but air horn noise simply drowns any signing out and makes it sound like some skiing event, it just sounds awful.

Who on earth goes to a football stadium expecting to watch a match in a "slight bit of peace"?

My dad once took a bear rattle on the stadium (the thing that makes loud annoying noise they use in bear hunts to get the bear moving in a desired direction).

It was pretty annoying.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim
