A few of us were discussing the origins of Melbourne's Australian Rules football teams. Correct me if I am wrong as I know little of football. The teams used to get their players from the suburbs of their names and a specified area in the country. None of this would be applicable today with players bought, sold and traded. Maybe the country catchment still applies.
We were wondering why Collingwood is such a passionately loved and passionately hated team. I put it down to a class thing. No suburb was quite so proudly working class as Collingwood.
The toff teams.
And the working class teams.
Did I miss any? The ones with question marks I am unsure about so offer your opinion.
