I think the common Swedish guy is just as patriotic as any nationality. Specially when it comes to sports. I think many people see an opportunity to sport swedish flags etc during sporting events. Waving flags without some guys chasing a ball/puck/whatever in front, is apparently seen as xhenophobic by some silly people.
