Some of my best friends are AFL supporters…

So, some passionate AFL supporters, that is, a large group of people who are emotionally committed to a confected tribalism based on completely arbitrary boundaries all in the service of gambling, are prone to fostering racist ideologies.

I’m as shocked as you are.

Surfing, anyone? Carn the sharks?
[NB. I said SOME supporters above, which means not all AFL supporters are racist, before anyone says rude things. And yes, I note that AFL is attempting to combat racism in the game.]
