OMMF posted a link that gives the long answer...a short answer: imagine the VFL, SANFL and WAFL refused to sign any aboriginal players until almost the 1950s, forcing said players to form their own competitions. imagine some of these teams pretend to be, say, Samoan, and hence speak gibberish on the field hoping to pass it off as a Samoan language. picture one team making its name from being the Harlem Globetrotters of footy. Imagine a lot of talent overlooked because their skin was darker than what was "acceptable."

I think Eddie Klep needs to be honored for courageously breaking the color barrier and making it to the Negro Leagues. (Ha ha, a joke, please don't kill me. True story, though)

Wait a minute, I thought it was former Kansas City Monarchs pitcher Edwin Miller who broke the Negro League color barrier during the 1945 season.

(100 points for anybody who gets the reference)
