I have no idea why anyone thought these stupid pieces of plastic would make their way to stadiums abroad after the World Cup. I'm still pissed that nobody saw it for what it could be, a weapon, and threw it onto the pitch during one of the games so they'd finally be banned.
Luckily for us, England is good at something other than playing football. A number of clubs in the Premiership including Arsenal, Liverpool, West Ham United, Sunderland and Birmingham City have banned the horns from their grounds. A number of others look set to follow suit. Some cited the need to ensure the most enjoyable environment for fans while others noted the health issues due to the incredibly high decibel level.
Lets be honest though. This is England. If a fan blows that horn in someone else's ear, at the very least something like this could happen. If you bring a couple more vuvuzelas into the mix, all hell could break loose. And obviously, the last thing you want to do is piss off the police!!
This ban is preventing WWIII from erupting in the stadiums, short and simple.
