As has been mentioned multiple times the horns ruined the broadcast last night. Perhaps if enough people send TSN and the CFL emails regarding the displeasure it caused during the broadcast they will act on it.

I'm sure it will be addressed and it won't happen again. I'm all for fun but the fun for 2 fans can't come at the expense of 400,000 people watching the game on TV. The league knows TV audiences pay a large portion of the bills.

It was a hand pumped horn, so never gets empty. Also, the radio said they mic it differently than TSN and it was not near as annoying on CJOB.  If I am TSN I would be worried about this issue because the casual fan can easily turn the channel the second they are no longer enjoying anything.

I am all for fun, and I appreciate the enthusiasm of the fans with the horn....but when it affects the broadcast it needs to be addressed. Go ahead blow the horns but CFL/TSN has to address the concern as I muted my TV and I know of a lounge that had to take off the live audio and many people who simply gave up on watching. That affects viewership/ sponsorships etc. If MTRL continues to allow them then TSN/CFL needs to filter the audio for the broadcast to filter that out.

this is totally bush league. Horns are banned around the league, but heck, Montreal just has to be different. No. Take the loophole away. No mechanical or artificial sound devices of any sort, end of story.

I don't mind people using external things like horns or cowbells to cheer on their team, distract the opposing offence, etc. as this is very much part of the game (13th man and all)... but it shouldn't interfere with the broadcast or diminish the experience of the people watching from home. A fellow fan told me this morning there is a league-wide ban on these types of horns, so why wasn't anybody enforcing this rule?

Normally I'd agree, but the horn thing is different.

1. It's a few fans sitting very close to the TSN booth window causing all the problems.
2. You can hear the 1 to 3 individual horns distinctly, It's not general drone noise like at IGF or Mosaic.  There is a big difference in annoyance factor on tv.
3. It works like a compressed air horn (but it's hand-operated) which is outlawed in every CFL stadium in Canada.

I have a few easy solutions that might even allow the horn fans to be happy:

A. Designate the sections all around the booth as horn-free.  If you have to, designate the whole side horn-free.  Horny fans can trade their STs for the other side.  This will instantly solve the on-TV problem.  The horny fans can still horndog away from the booth.

B. (More drastic) Outlaw that type of horn and give them all an option to trade-up to a Bomber-style blow trumpet.

I'm not sure why everyone is finally, now, in a tiff about the MTL horns: they've been doing this for many years!  I've complained about it in the past.  If it's gotten worse it's because someone has gotten STs right near the booth.  You gotta protect that area around the booth.

This Gary Stern sure is a troublemaker isn't he... no wonder the Als suck this year.. See how Doman is turning the BC Lions team around and how he acts is a big difference from Stern.
