“Your team may have won this time but they may lose next time; so if you don’t play fair this time, it can es­ca­late, as your part­ner might not play fair next time.”

For oth­ers whose part­ner is football mad, and they are not, she said fi­nals sea­son was the per­fect time to grab a movie, or mas­sage.

“Get some non-football mad friends and go out to­gether to get away from the mad­ness,” she said.

She said com­pro­mise was key, and if you chose to stay and watch, re­mem­ber one day they will par­tic­i­pate in some­thing they are not too keen on ei­ther.

“You might not like footy as much as your part­ner but there are times you might want your part­ner to do some­thing they don’t en­joy as much, so it’s a mat­ter of mu­tual sup­port.” Tips for the sur­vival of both par­ties - do's and don'ts. DO en­joy your­self and the game DO make time for each other DO make clear rules on how to in­ter­act if op­pos­ing teams are play­ing DON'T con­tinue the ban­ter be­yond the game, as this could cause an­noy­ance, frus­tra­tion and po­ten­tially ar­gu­ments within the re­la­tion­ship. DON'T sit and pout, if you'd pre­fer do­ing some­thing else - go do some­thing else DON'T be a sore loser

It may take some ef­fort to keep the peace dur­ing footy fi­nals.
