Geelong 163 - Port Adelaide 44
I am always amazed how we self select with sports teams. Here in Adelaide there are two very competitive Aussie Rules Teams and it took me about a week to self select which one I cared about. Not necessarily a fervent supporter, but definitely easy to pick one over the other.
The local ABC website asked the simple question during the week about whether supporters of the Crows should support the Power in the Grand Final. A resounding 80 percent said no. Sporting Tribalism is alive and kicking. None of this South Australia is the best stuff.
Sort of Rangers versus Celtic, Dundee versus Dundee United, Hibernian versus Hearts, Catholic versus Protestant, Republican versus Democrat, Conservative versus Labour, Salt and Vinegar versus Cheese and Onion Crisps.......
Now why would that be?
