    Oops! What am I doing here??
    That's better probably.... now I have more than one line per message.
    What was I trying to say?
    Association football had its first rulebook around 1860, which makes it a
    fairly distant outlier in the football phylogeny.
    The real outliers of course are Aussie Rules and Gaelic football, which probably
    split from the rest at a very early date. There's also Winchester football, which is only played at Winchester school.
    That's probably going to be an early one, but I'm not sure quite how early...
