Just tried it out. For starters, it's bloody biased. It didn't work on Firefox, IE8, or Safari. It worked on Chrome when I installed it though. It doesn't work that well, though. The vuvuzela's are still annoying, and now, the announcers sound like they're talking through a tunnel, and everything sounds like it's 64kbps quality.

I don't watch the World Cup or anything so I had no idea what a vuvuzela was until I looked up a Youtube video.
It's so annoying, I couldn't imagine watching a game and having to hear that noise the entire time. Ugh.

Awesome, we're streaming the England match at work tomorrow so I'll ensure this is on the PCs before I start the streaming off...

I've heard many commentators or columnists talk about how the vuvuzela is a long tradition in football matches in South Africa, but there are stories on how they came to the matches being a cheap Chinese product brought in just 10 years ago...

They are annoying in broadcasts and I can just assume they are the same in-stadium. I don't need this app because I watch all the maches live on my TV but perhaps this can help people watching the cup via online streams.

It's going to be so good once this world cup **** ****es off.

God soccer is a **** game.

don't worry the rugby world cup is on next year!

I was hoping someone would make this, works great, i use the medium setting it blocks the annoying parts.
BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

It sort of works with the Strong setting... at least makes it tolerable to watch more than 15 minutes of the match.

Two weeks ago, I would've been the first to download this. Now I kind of enjoy the racket from the vuvuzelas.
Call it brain washing

The buzzing is terrible and you loose a big part of the game which is the cheering and singing of the crowd (not mentioning the ole shouting).

+1

Doesn't exactly help the fans in the stadium that don't wanna hear that nonsense.

But I don't have much of any interest in soccer, so who am I to point out the obvious?

I think American football should be called soccer. After all, English football does involve using the FEET more

+1 Agreed.

Actually, that are the number of viewers for all the games (something like 800 million viewers per game...not simultaneous viewers)

"11 people complained to the FCC last night, and we all know 1 complaint equals a billion people complained, which means 11 billion people complained!"

There is one real Football, what Americans call football should be called American Rugby.

Wont hurt that much considering they are wearing pads, try getting tackled buy a guy thats the same size as an american footballer fully padded up, pro tip rugby players dont wear padding to protect them, also a little history lesson, roservelt deemed rugby too brutal and banned it until it became safer aka pads and differant rules, american football was born

Now let that linebacker run around a 100 yard field for 1,5 hours, see if he can do that with all those 'muscles' he got.
