: Playing ball on yer tod is a personal activity, playing with friends is a social activity, if you play ball with friends, you have to play by the agreed rules. Its damned hard to play cricket on yer tod.
social activity, not function. Its chosen voluntary and individual.
: But its not *their* field, effectively they are just managers working a field for an absentee landlord, except this landlord is the whole human race...
