ARE YOU SICK OF HEARING ‘AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE, Oi Oi, Oi ?
There is no better time to cheer on Australia than at the Olympic Games. For years, we have cheered and chanted Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi, but have we had enough?
Is it time to move on? Do you have a better chant?
FOXTEL is asking Australians to come up with a better verse to cheer on our sporting heroes and are offering a ten thousand dollar prize to whoever can come up with the winning chant.
With only weeks until the games begin former Olympic sprinter and host of FOXTEL’s Olympic Games 2012 coverage Matt Shirvington said, “I love Aussie, Aussie, Aussie..it’s become such a part of our culture and a truly unique voice to Australians. No matter where in the world you are, you know if there is an Aussie in the crowd as soon as you hear it.
England has their passionate ‘war cry’, to try and top that means a new chant would need to be pretty creative and simple at the same time.”
Every Australian is being encouraged to create a new national chant, film it and upload it to foxtelDOTcomDOTauSLASHsportingchants where entries will be whittled down to a final four on July 16th. The overall winner will be selected based on public votes, memorable lyrics and the ability to inspire and perfrom.
If the orginal Aussie, Aussie, Aussie chant still turns out to be the favourite amongst Australians then the ten thousand dollar prize will go to the runner up who will be announced on July 24th.
Australians- start chanting!

my proudest moment of being Australian occurred when thousands of aussies were chanting it the whole time when Ian Thorpe was going for Gold. and when I say when Ian Thorpe was going for gold, I mean during a women's basketball match between China and Poland.

What's so bad about Waltzing Matilda? At least it's Australian and has a tune.
Meh I'm just happy to be one of the usual group of fat pissed kiwis who rips off his shirt and does a mass haka.

It's a great chant and it is uniquely Australian, why the fuck should we change it? What's with everybody always trying to change this country. Just leave shit as it is and maybe we'll get some national personality.

Uniquely Australian

Quote:

Several variations of the "Oggy" chant have arisen as its cultural significance and recognition has grown. In the early 1970s, Chelsea F.C. soccer fans changed it from "Oggie" to "Ozzie," in honour of Peter Osgood, the soccer player. When Margaret Thatcher came to power in Britain in 1979 a variation of the chant ("Maggie Maggie Maggie, Out Out Out!") was adopted by some of her opponents.

Another variation is the "Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi" chant. It had been heard at Australian sporting events as early as 1987.[7] The chant had found widespread popularity by the time of the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney.[8]

At Arizona Diamondbacks games during the 2008-09 seasons, fans would shout "Augie Augie Augie, Oi Oi Oi" in reference to utility infielder Augie Ojeda. (In many dialects of American English, "Augie" and "Oggy" are homophones).

The chant has also been adopted by the fans of newly promoted English rugby union premiership side, the Exeter Chiefs. They use the same form, but replace the word Oi with the word Chiefs.

The chant is also popular in Calgary, Canada, where a variation has fans of the Calgary Flames shout "Iggy, Iggy, Iggy, Oi Oi Oi" when Jarome Iginla fought or scored in a game. This was especially popular during his 50 goal season in the 2007-08 NHL season.

In Sweden a popular version of the chant is "Bira Bira Bira, Bärs Bärs Bärs". It is a drinking chant in which every word just means Beer.

A more recent variant of the chant has been adopted by fans of the British male singer and former runner up of The X Factor, Olly Murs. Here, it is changed slightly so that the chant becomes "Olly, Olly, Olly, Oi Oi Oi", and it is often chanted at his live concert tours/public appearances or incited by Murs himself at such events as these.

The one I don't like is in the World Series of darts... Jakatta - American Dream. It has completely ruined that track for me.

depends on how drunk I am and what sport we are playing and if we actually have a chance.

it carries more weight around other countries, or when the olympics were here. Aussies chanting it amonst other aussies is a little overdone.
