    It really irked me when they picked that name, because it really doesn't depict the true sentiment of a club or group, it is a small and childish name, teams like Red V does and "The Burrow" (even if it is a factually incorrect name)

    But that picture is more embarrassing than not having a supporters group

    Gee the claws are out today.

    I agree that the name is lame, but really what did you expect when our marketing department is run on a shoestring and made up of volunteers with little or no experience. They mean well, but what did you expect you would get from an internet poll on the choice of name

    Compare this to Souths or Dragons who both have a very savvy marketing departments and take pride in their "brand". They could see the potential in a well run supporters group.

    I'm not a fan of the name but Byso may have taken that picture when Souths were taking the shot at goal, in which case there probably wasnt much to scream about.

    Even if that were the case you take a picture of the Red V or the sharkies supporters group whilst the other team is taking a shot. They are vocal and trying to put it off.

    We have no heart

    That's pretty f*cking terrible to be perfectly honest... Pretty simple, but such a bad error.
