    I tried to watch a game, I normaly don't like to watch soccer, and couldn't hear what was being said. I first thought the noise was insects but found out later it was human caused. The noise was distracting and I quit watching any games. If FIFA wants to promote their sport they failed to capture my interest because of this noisy situation. I'll read the paper for my scoresand highlights from now on.
