Fox Sports & FFA took the 11 team league as an excuse to get rid of games they don't want to show on TV. Newcastle vs Adelaide, Perth vs Brisbane, Mariners vs Wellington I would bet turn out to have only 2 rounds.
They will have 3 of every 'derby'. SFC v MV, MC v MVC, WSW v SFC etc.
One thing I am thankful for in relation to coming from Middlesbrough is the multiculturalism. It is not a traditional English town. Pre 1860 there was nothing there but empty fields and a farm, the town was built on immigration, straight grid roads and no building older than 100 years, the heritage is in the industry, hard graft and the people who moved there to have a go, the Irish to begin with, then the people from India, Pakistan and more recently Africa. When I was at primary school in the mid 80's we went on an exchange to spend a week at a muslim school, that was the mid 80's! People are only shouting about this kind of thing now.
The only thing ant annoyed me was the fact that the local takeaways back then did an anglo version of their home food because back then they thought no one would like the real traditional stuff. Therefore it was omelette and chips from a chinese takeaway lol The curry from the Indian takeaway would taste much like Sunday roast gravy.
It was only from the mid 90's on wards that this changed.
