Collingwood puts the bite on China

The Collingwood Football club is promoting the benefits of zero dental costs for its overseas fans, as the AFL (Australian Football League) makes a push into China. For the past two seasons, Chinese students living in Melbourne have been given 3 free tickets to AFL games along with “honorary” memberships once they return home. Collingwood President Eddie McGuire told The Asia Beat, “Many of these students have very little money, so the Collingwood fan tradition of never seeing a dentist appeals to them. On the other hand, many of them are puzzled that they are suddenly hated by millions of Australians – but hey, swings and roundabouts, or, as I believe they say in China, “Yoni and Lingham””.
(It is believed that Mr McGuire was referring toYin & Yang).
