It is their cheer silly bear

"Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi"

That is what they yell when cheering for Aussie players

I can't tell you why though.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Yeah, it's just a chant. It doesn't have any significance...not to my knowledge anyway

Re: Why...?

***OI***As an Aussie myself the chant is a sacred part of patriotism among very large sporting events....the oi,oi,oi is just a slang term oftenly used by us aussies.... cant directly tell u why but i think it originated amongst cricketers
