    Also, they need to ban the hell out of those ridiculous horns/vuvuzelas. Part of the reason I love these matches is because the crowd chanting, singing and noise, is wonderful to listen to but this crap just makes the broadcast sound like it's covered in bees.

    Better yet, they could just turn the mics off altogether; either have it completely silent or play some nice atmospheric music. Who needs to hear the commentators ranting inanely on on when we can see what's happening perfectly well, and apparently a lot better than they can?

    I haven't been catching any of that in the U.S. What is the main idea that the British Media focuses on regarding Maradona and Argentina?

    Here they talk mostly about the drug stuff.

    It was quite dissappointing.

    I was secretly hoping we (The Netherlands) would loose. If we don't make it out of the pool, I won't be confronted with this orange crap all the time, and don't have to talk about the same thing hour after hour, day after day, with everyone I meet. Which are a lot of people.

    The "hand of God", the great goals, the 1986 game in general, the drugs, the weight problems, the rivalry, the Simeone "cheating", the penalty shoot-out 1998, the 2002 Beckham revenge, etc. ad nauseum.

    Probably they wouldn't bang on about it half so much if they didn't have so much in the way of airtime/pages to fill. The media pathetically going round and round in circles "analysing" everything to death for lack of actual facts or intelligent commentary is the primary reason why I pretty much tend to avoid both TV and newspapers these days. This crap rots our brains!
