Well funnily enough the word "mackem" originated as an insult to Sunderland people from geordies, because of the way we talked. In the (early 19th Century) ship building days when Sunderland dockyard was the best in the industry and we used to compete with the geordies - "We mack em, they tak em".

It's now just become an accepted term for people who support Sunderland, even if they actually aren't from the City (a lot of our support comes from the surrounding areas like County Durham, which is where i'm from).

So erm, there we go, a brief history of the word "mackem". Just hope you managed you stay awake till the end  :D
