Summary The public showed an agitated reaction towards the ban on Mexican wave at the MCG, which reveals something about contemporary sport watching in Australia and perhaps about contemporary Australian cities. Cricket has developed the concept of sport as entertainment. The real issue with the wave is about proprietary control over the entertainment taking place inside the stadium. Entertainment organised by the stadium managers, which they and their sponsors can make money from, is all right, but spontaneous entertainment, even something as tame as the Mexican wave, is forbidden.
