Long story but I was vacantly watching a Serie A match on Setanta Sports last night between Lazio and some other side I can't recall.Â It made me ponder who would be the "silvertails" of Serie A.Â I know very little about the comp apart from the top few sides. So I thought perhaps we could spend our off season researching all of the major (and not so major) global sporting competitions to discover which side wears the mantle of "the team everyone loves to hate" and/or silvertails.Â Would be fascinating to follow the fortunes on "Manly's" all around the world - of course some of us have sides we support in some major comps so no expectation to switch camps.Â But there are hundreds of competitions to research, many of them just kicking off a new season. Example:Â Consider Manly's equivalent in the AFL.Â There are two sides that "everyone loves to hate"Â Carlton and Collingwood.Â The hate for Carlton may be a bit muted because of their recent lack of success and Eddie everywhere hogging the limelight on behalf of Collingwood. But if you had to choose between those two - Collingwood are hated because they are dickheads.Â Carlton are hated because they had money and are the Jewish club.Â Seems to me Carlton are the Manly of the AFL? I'll start a few threads on various competitions.
