Because although you can do that, and no one will stop you, its not advisable, unless you have wank-repelling body lotion or something. Because you will get grief. Club football is not as all-encompassing as International football - it isn't usually ok to like several teams, especially not if they play in the same league. People usually like one team per league. Most people only follow one or two leagues. Obviously this is not a hard and fast rule, but I've noticed some butthurt from people who have received adverse reactions for saying they like both Barca and Real Madrid, or Liverpool and Man Utd, and not understanding why this is a problem. Hopefully this post will clear things up.
CLUB RIVALRIES 101
I'm not going to talk about every single club rivalry, instead I'm going to talk about the ones that will prob affect people in this comm, because I don't think we're going to have many Barcelona/Espanyol joint supporters for example. So if you have one that isn't featured, feel free to post it in the comments and I'll link to it when I see it :) I also know nothing about the Bundesliga, so if anyone would like to do their rivalries, I would be eternally grateful.
If you're one of the TL:DR crowd, you might not want to read this.
