I wasnt sure of where to put this question, so I created this new thread...
Why is this forum called Oi Oi Oi? Im curious since the first time I saw it. But I felt like if I was asking it would sound stupid. LOL :o Someone enlight me please! :D

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

***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
