    You still seem to be ignoring context... not coincidentally.

    How about content? How much does that matter?

    We're not cheering for Australia as the opponents are not non Australians. We're all Australians.
    I went to an NFL game over the Veterans Day weekend several years ago. There were fly overs by military jets, and a giant flag on the field (you know the type, where people are under it making it "waive"), and sometimes chants of "USA" broke out during the displays. It was pretty cool.

    Oh, I agree with you here, CC. I'm not saying my NFL experience was the same situation as this basketball game. I was just pointing out something that occurs here that Serenity says doesn't happen in Australia. I think being aware that patriotic displays are quite frequent in American sports could also provide some context.

    Sure. The example you gave is certainly a reason for chanting "USA, USA". But that's not the context of the story in the OP.

    Really? So, it really doesn't matter what someone says, if someone takes offense to it, that makes it offensive?
