Football fans aren't so think that they can't distinguish between 2 different sports.
Many Salford fans are dual season ticket holders for either Manchester Football club. Surprisingly they also follow cricket.
I sat next to a City fan for the first couple of seasons at Barton, also know quite a few.
The only problem occurs when both teams are at home on the same day.
The City fans actually like the "Original Red Devil " tag as it puts down the other club.
