I think some of it is to put the other player off, it's gamesmanship
The original Den of Iniquity
"Badges, to god-damned hell with badges! We have no badges. In fact, we don't need badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges, you god-damned cabrón and ching' tu madre! Come out from that shit-hole of yours. I have to speak to you."
That's brilliant. I had no idea. So Wimbledon was and still is embarrassed by a young working class left wing kid winning the title, and try not to mention the fact
As if they didn't put any photos of him on the walls ffs what petulant shit
It ties in with the attitudes of the time, as the upper classes dominated sport, especially the idle aristocracy who had fuck all to do during the days. They dominated shit from rugby to hunting. They openly kicked working class people out of rugby by making it impossible for them to play financially and revoking memberships like they did Fred Perry, prompting em to set up rugby league, which is still a proper northern working class thing now
this is bollocks tbf, wimbldons even got a black player now, and theyve even given him a nickname thats only partially patronising tbf, dreddy, because hes black and has dreadlocks, and they constantly pat him on the head in interviews and praise him for being different, because hes black, he must be delighted tbf
