Schizopedia: Local Derby

Wikipedia articles have a tendency to let the debates from the talk page seep into the articles themselves. I'm posting those I run across during the next few months in an original Theory Bloc series, Schizopedia.

Yet another theory is that the 'derby match' saying arose from when Liverpool played Everton. Their two grounds were separated by Stanley Park, owned by the Earl of Derby. This latter suggestion can be discounted, however.
