    I understand you. I don't like horns but I hate the whistle that European fans do even more, extremely annoying to my ears.

    Horns are prety common in Eastern Europe, doesn't matter whether it's in hockey or football/soccer.

    Players love it if there is noise all the time. Maybe not the horns, but a full 60 minute supportis absolutely fantastic. Just read some reports from the players who went ot Europe.

    Its awesome when the noise is made in time. (When your team attacks, there is greate hit or goal), but not all the time.
    Teams are changing lines - there is noise, they score a goal - there is noise.
    That's suck.

    It gets louder when there's a goal, so there is a difference.
    Personally, I don't mind that kind of fan support.
    Just as long as there are no hooligans...

    I dont know if it is the same throughout europe, but in big games involving the home team they often seem to make much more noise, throughout the game, banging on drums, chanting and so forth. Is this an influence from football/soccer?

    Well, not a single player in latvian NT have said that that they cant stand that noise. On countrary, ive heard in some interwuevs that for other players that noise is bit too much. So here we go, thats the main purpose of the noise.

    Adn cmon man, i didnt want to show how much russians love us, just pointing out the fact. Theres another thread about horns and how unculural and stupid latvian fans are, and thread started once again by russian. funny :sarcasm:

    They should sing instead. We have some good ol' songs, that fit for playing PK when we are 3 against 5 opponent players.

    Sing songs, bang your drums, clap your hands but please stop using those silly horns. European fans use to be pretty good at showing support by coming up with good chants and songs (mostly at club level but still...), and I am not talking about GO "home team" GO!!! kind of chants.

    The thing about the horns is that it just doesn't stop. I don't mind the noise when a goal is scored or something happens but it sounds like 20,000 whales mating for 2 hours.

    I agree. Those horns just makes Latvians look "dumb" fans IMO. Just cheer, sing and clap your hands. That's the way to support your team! I don't like drums either but hate those :madfire: horns.

    I agree 100%! I like cheering, clapping, singing, drumming but those horns are just so annoying. They sound stupid and drives you crazy when listened two straight hours. I usually like Latvian fans in any sports because they always cheer loud but those horns are just too much.

    You are funny to make a nationalistic argument over that. This is not about Latvians or Russians, it's about those ******* annoying horns. It's like working at a factory with a high noise level. Human noise is completely different, it has spirit.

    Those horns make me watch the games on mute, they are annoying and irritating and not what I'd consider 'atmosphere".

    Sing and chant but thow away those horns. I remember watching a game of Dynamo Kiev some time ago. They had the same horns.

    Brutal.
