    Canberra United nickname?

    Post by Golden_CU on Thu Oct 14, 2010 7:40 am

    Don't know if it has been discussed here before or not, but what would be a nickname for Canberra United? Obviously it'd have no relation to Capital Punishment, so no terms related to the supporters group.

    Thoughts?

    I thought it was good. Shame. :arms:

    We could have a group like the Beach (for which GC is best known) and call ourselves the Pubes. We'd all turn up in suits and afro wigs lol.

    We have a team called the Lakers. They play hockey. Good point though.
    What are the other A-League teams nicknames? The only "nickname" is really the Reds for Adelaide Utd.

    Perhaps we could be "Les Verts"?

    That's kind of what I was going for - steering away from politics = good.
    That said, they do hold the balance of power in both Federal and Territory parliament...

    It's french cos that's the only team I could think of that has "the greens" as its nickname, plus their keeper is a nutcase.

    if we do become Canberra Athletic, nickname should be Latics...

    I like les verts as well.

    If we were nicknamed 'the greens' in english we could have 'the greens' party as our shirt sponsor :P :P

    actually the greens isn't that bad a idea, but maybe the name shouldn't have anything to do with politics since a lot of canberrans aren't too proud of canberra being the city of pollies

    hmmm
