From what I've heard /seen of this world cup series, there has been a continuous buzzing noise in the background that sounds like either a huge swarm of angry wasps or the warm-up session at a formula 1 race! What is it and why can't they either turn it right down or better still blank it out completely? It's very off putting. I don't remember it at any previous tournament. At the moment this tournament is in danger of becoming known as 'the buzzing world cup'!

Hahahahaha Laughing Mr Vine was talking about this today, the general opinion was they are bloody awful!

apparently some players are having problems concentrating because the noise is constant.

There's only one way to "blank it out completely" and that's to turn the sound off!

I've just heard that the BBC are looking at a red button option that would exclude this dreadful din. I sincerely hope this is true as it makes the games unwatchable. What with that and ITV making us miss the England goal - Rolling Eyes Mad

Ah so that's what the problem is!

I would have thought the money some of these guys are on would help them to be able to focus their minds. Rolling Eyes

It's not possible to filter the horn frequencies from the output anyhow without losing all the sound from inside the stadium.

Anyhow, I don't need the BBC to supply me with a magic "red button", as I already have one. It's called the "mute" button.

Daily Mail exclusive, David James will be England's goalie tonight. Shocked

Very brave of the Daily Mail to publish, no-one else has 'confirmed' Rolling Eyes

I hope not. If he's going to "dump" Green, he should give Joe Hart a go, at least he's young enough to throw himself about!!

I can't understand why HE doesn't tell THEM sooner and just keep it a secret from the rest of us!
