Has to be the worst name for a team I have ever heard.

What was wrong with WA Reds?

I would love to see a team in Peth and in NZ to seriously EXPAND the game, but that name and logo is just awful.
Dropkick Murphy..we actually saw and heard a mass of bouncing and scarf and flag waving to Dale Cavese that drowned out anything we could muster.. It stopped us singing our own celebratory songs, it died out seconds later when we accepted we couldn't be heard over the Wigan lot
Celebrations muted from us, job done from them. Most fans who slag them off are jealous their own club's support is nowhere near that good
-
sally cinnamon..Why not discuss Wigan? It's a rugby league message board. Wigan are the most famous brand in rugby league
-
Tre Cool..Saints fans are hopeless unless it's a cup final or grand final. Wigan fans are so much more loyal and passionate
-
the flying biscuit..Wires havent been massively succesful over the years, but I've spoke to Brian Bevan And he spoke to me and i wouldnt swap that for Wigans History, ever
-
Ande..on the TV i could only hear the Wigan fans with about 10 to go
-
Saint94..Every team is in your feckin shadow, we all know

Rabbits?

Well, look at the history behind the name. It actually means something.

Pirate is just totally made up and has nothing behind it.

West Coast Swans would make much more sense and means much more than 'pirates'. However, this would be a bad idea because of the football team in sydney.

There was nothing wrong with WA Reds.

Actaully there is a couple of significant WA links to Pirates. I know where the Rabbits, Eels and Roosters names come from historically, they are still crap for marketing. At least Pirates had huge potential for marketing and merchandise, it is unique in Australian sport and does have some historical context for WA.

Your right there was not much wrong with WA Reds (apart from 2 other sports teams called Reds and the smell it still carried from SL), I liked it and was very disappointed we binned it. At least we binned it for something that has some potentail and can be a strength of the new club.

Lets just hope they can add more to the league than some of the current clubs. Poor attendances and league positions/performances for some heartland clubs just are not good enough really.
