    Thumbs down The Illawarra Hawks changed their name to The Hawks

    What a stupid move by the new owners. The Hawks? Which city or region are they representing now? Who is going to support a team with such a weird name? If they reckon the market in Wollongong or the Illawarra region is too small, just relocate to Southern Sydney or Canberra and change their name to the Southern Sydney (Canberra) Hawks.
    OMFG this is for Real!!!! * Shocked *

    Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by itslef but the wrod as a wlohe.

    My thoughts exactly. Hope they would remain in Wollongong. Canberra is better off with its own team again with the Cannons name resurrected. Would the Canberra residents like taking someone else's basketball team?
    Jusqui'ici tout va bien...
