It's not Allez, well not to me anyway! V.Melb I know what sound you're referring too! They've been doing it for years....you described it perfectly (eeeeeaahhh!). It's bloody annoying.

Yes it's like a wail from some dying animal. What I want to know is why do they make it? I mean I've seen them heckle players with it and I've seen them use it for no apparent reason.

OMG!!!! LOL!! I was thinking about this and I always wondered what they were saying. They sound like a cage of yelping hyennas. That chant is so annoying especially when someone French is playing. It's so bad, I just have to turn the television down.

Yeah, it is quite annoying, like a car alarm going off. It's especially bad when you can't hear what the commentators or the umpire says because of all that screeching.

Ok I heard a clear one and it sounded like allez. It just gets hard to understand when everyone says it.
