Why do we follow the teams we do ?

Often , it is family tradition that dictates which team we support.

The person who takes us to the footy
when we we are young can decide who we will barrack for .

A young man may barrack for the team they played with in an amateur league or at senior level who is affiliated with a particular afl club.

Geographical location may dictate who you will barrack for .If you live in Carlton does it follow that you will go for the Blues?

Peer group pressure and wanting to follow the same team as your friends might decide who you follow. Also if you want to go the footy you will go with fans of the same club , sit together and wear your similiar football jumper , jersey , guernsey .
