Which WAS the most Popular Melbourne team?
I'm just curious, and would like to hear from Victorians whom they would regard as having been the most popular "back in the day" and/or who would have the best heritage?
Naturally part of my curiosity is sparked by the idea of bringing back a 2nd Melbourne team, but I am also just idly curious. Many of those teams pre-dated my following NBL, and even later, whilst I recall some great games and rivalries, I never really got a sense of how popular those teams were at home.
I'd be particularly interested to hear from anyone who followed one of the early clubs like St Kilda or Coburg, particularly if you tried following their descendants...
