    Default one of(vs for) all the teams


    Should the preposition here be for?


    What is a tag? How is there one
    of
    all the teams?


    It is a response of one of the moderators to the thread

    If you read that thread you would have seen the original question used the phrase "a tag of all the teams." You would have also read that the original phrase was meaningless to me.

    Context.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I thought you were asking how is there one tag for all.(against one for each or something of that sort) because you added one in your sentence which was not in the original post.
