Hmmn. I associated Sin City with Sydney when I started. This was reinforced by the sprinkle of Bloods fans on their list.

Even the Swamprats name struck me as a reference to the loathed Pratt family who played a role in South's exile. Talk of over reading.

Personally I am not a fan about use of American locations but I doubt such names are deal breakers.

Sydney being called sin city is from the 60's 70's and 80's

Most the rest of the country had borderline puritan liquor laws regarding closing times, pokies were illegal, and our vice squads actually tried to stop prostitution.

Head to the cross, and it was Disneyland for adults back then. Hence the sin city moniker, because it was the place everyone outside Sydney came when they wanted to get their skank on
Thanks for that Alan Jones.

Shush shush, you're allowed an opinion on footy when your team has won a flag

As if we have enough money to hire a coach, jackster83 blew most of it on booze after the flag and Nunez spent the rest on a one way flight to The Bahamas
And the Bahamas were good to me. Quarantine exists for everyone but celebrities. 😎

They're certainly not dealbreakers.
But when they're the first thing you see of a new bid, they're not very good names and it would mean that over 1/3rd (I think that maths is correct Elton Johns Wig ) of the comp is American based - it certainly isn't going to get you off to a good start.

That's a cool connection to draw, it's like people who thought my SM stood for South Melbourne.

Bit harsh, mate.

Ned_Flanders may be a fat, racist, xenophobic, bigoted, anti-expansionist, Tony-Abbott-defending, corrupt-to-the-core, RWNJ, but he's not a pedo.

Tony Lynn 15 may be a sexist, ageist, classist, beezist, womanising-alcoholic-communist, but he's not a racist.
How good is alcohol and woman.....in that order.
