Formatted abstract
We have all heard it said that sport is sometimes like religion. Think of the rituals involved in supporters of AFL: donning the scarves, showing up at games, fervently supporting their clubs. Watch the heat that’s created between two opposing supporters of the faithful.

Sport and religion are considered with a view of putting a concept of human spirituality that is not dependent upon any single faith-tradition of world religions.
