Discussion in 'South Sydney Rabbitohs' started by Travitoh, May 12, 2017.
You were speaking of the indigenous people that pre-dated Souths, they didn't play for parra.
Yep. There's one of their descendants there.
Any Rabbitoh descendants playing for souffs?
He was a different tribe.
You obviously have your mind made up about this. Carry on.
Well eels in the parramatta river is an eco-system not a history, it's not as if they harvested them and then went and played for parra.
Keep on denying the historical links other clubs also have in a strange attempt to claim south's are unique. As you were.
I don't see any historical links but mostly geographical links.
I've already spelled it out for you.
Then you must have forgotten the punctuation.
but if you lot are the butchers and not the animal in this story don't you need a different logo.
Lol, that's true.
I should have realised pictures would have been more effective in explaining that...
Well it's really big of you to admit that you were wrong
Yeah. I thought you were clever enough to understand my point without pictures.
A lot of the logos and names were only set in stone in 1977 when the NSWRFL with Singleton got the branding done for marketing and merchandising purposes.
Prior Newtown were the BluebIags. Canterbury Bankstown the Berries. In earlier times there were more nicknames. Manly sometimes referred to as the Seagulls; Norths were the Shoreman (remember the bridge wasnt originally there). Wests the Cherry Pickers.
A lot of early colour combos and jerseys came directly from the district RU teams.
The Broncos were to be the Brumbies but as someone posted, got help and a name from Denver. Their colours were red and blue but Newcastle registered first.
Canberra were also listed to be the Nationals or Senators. Penrith were cronulla s colours but cronulla took them first.
Anyway, every club has a story. They're all good ones. Souths is special to us but no better or worse than anyone else.
i forgive you, but get your facts right next time.
They'll be the same. There's history in the names of other teams.
Or botanical, zoological or, like souffs, social.
Also, how about Warrington?
They have the nickname 'the wire', after the wire factories that were once there.
Separate names with a comma.
