If you’re a follower of football, you may understand the fervour that the finals cause. It’s that time of year here in Australia and different codes and clubs have their fanatics. Passionate fans and supporters feel they belong to their tribe. Whether they are members of the club or not there is a sense of belonging; knowing who the players are; having an opinion of what their strengths or weaknesses may be and having perhaps some perceived personal insight into the players behind the club brand.
