In the interests of me immersing myself in Aussie sporting culture can someone explain a couple of things about the above to me please.
If I follow it it seems to be a Victoria state team against a team made up from all the other states. Why is it Victoria on it's own?
Why the apparent antipathy towards Victoria on all the coverage I've seen on the TV Sports News? Maybe there is something that I'm not remembering from all the research I did before coming over, including a bit on the history, but everyone seems to have a fair degree of a disliking for Victoria.I may even watch some of it. As I've applied for a job with one of the teams in Adelaide (not playing I might add) I watched some last week to show willing and I have to say the beautiful game it aint nad other than working out the scoring system most of the rest of the rules (if there are many) were lost on me.
I'm sure understanding this is an important part of the assimilation process and I would like to be able to brief Ali when she arrives next week - yet another sport to bore her with
