Mostly true but for the "defunct code of football". All the modern codes essentially evolved out of a large number of games played at british education institutions in the early to mid 19th centuries which themselves have their roots in folk games that were as many any number as the villages that played them.Aussie Rules, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Association Football, Gridiron, etc. all evolved from a long defunct code of football. They were the same sport with different teams having different rules. They all are football.
...he is very much correct. Presumably the AFLX won't be played at AAMI either as the AFL owns etihad outright now which would mean it is unlikely to be commercial optimal to play thereFootball isn't played at AAMI
The rules of rugby were first agreed when the RFU was formed in 1870, taking the name of the school whose rules had likely had the biggest influence. The "norther union" - which became the rugby football league - broke away from the RFU in 1895 mainly because it was representative of more of the blue collar participants of the game who wanted compensation for the time taken from work and the risk of injury (and so their capacity to work). The same process happened in Australia in 1907 (first season being 1908). Most of the process of pretty much completely removing the contest for the ball occurred over the following 80 odd years.Might I also add that the rules for Rugby Union were created by Rugby School and then Rugby League was created by people in the South of England who thought the rules of Union were too snobby or something like that.
Is that still true?Which in the northern states is also called football or footy

Except for diehards no one claims the name as theirs only.Is that still true?
I had someone from Sydney try to use "football" to describe soccer to me a few weeks back. Needless to say I immediately corrected them with "soccer".
My assumption was that Sydneysiders have, for the most part, ceded the name "football" for soccer's exclusive use?
Actually Rugby League was created in the North of EnglandMight I also add that the rules for Rugby Union were created by Rugby School and then Rugby League was created by people in the South of England who thought the rules of Union were too snobby or something like that.
nah definitely not, its barely followed in the south.It's more popular in the South though isn't it?
Should make the same cups at the brewery for beforehand, so when you start the pre-drinks the recycling is starting at both venuesSimple, yet effective idea.
I wonder if people can pay the $2 deposit in round 1, take the cup home (the 'keep it as a momento' option in the video), and then bring the cup back for future matches.
