    You're exactly right Nonno Gomes. Sydney FC are the only ones who really have a right to call themselves united because they somewhat represent the 6 or 7 sydney clubs in the old NSL.

    Adelaide had one team in the old NSL so who did they unite?

    Canberra aren't uniting anything so i reckon city or athletic.

    I say go with Canberra Athletic because we would be the only Athletic in the league. Also, why 1913?

    A team name should be based around the city. Canberra Athletic is good as it recognises Canberra as the home of Australian sport in the AIS and its healthy outdoor lifestyle, maybe even Sporting Canberra.

    no no no no no. Capital Punishment is the name of the supporters group. It wouldn't be the name of the team.

    Canberra Athletic does have a nice ring to it - already a few united's anyway so it would give us some individuality.
