Discussion in 'St George Illawarra Dragons' started by J.moz, Jun 12, 2020.
I don't like to speak Illawarra...
Seemed to serve us well in days of yore.
When Knights were bold?
Was there a bird perched upon a bust of Pallas just above your chamber door?
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.
How about the Gordon’s sells their stake back to St George
He then registers the business name
He then does a deal for the money we pay him and becomes one of our major sponsor for x years with 1st option to extend
In turn we give him the top left side of the jersey for his logo and remove Illawarra off the emblem.
Ladies & gentlemen, the 3rd wave..
I should have said sleeve
Perfectly reasonable I would have thought
He paid good money to have a say but doesn’t say or do anything so basically he is a glorified sponsor.
Helensburgh is roughly half way between Kogarah and Wollongong.
Helensburgh Saints. I like it.
Some group just bought the Illawarra Hawks and it’s now known as just the Hawks
Oh joy if that can happen to our club
I question the damsel in distress version.
The historical St George served in the Roman army but refused to denounce Christianity. For his faith, he was eventually beheaded by order of the Emperor Diocletian who, according to some sources, was known as 'the Dragon' by his enemies. So, the Dragon did kill St George.
This somehow morphed into a myth where an actual Dragon was slayed by St George. I blame the Crusades.
So drop the location names and just call us Dragons?
Foolish idea.. You’d alienate people from both regions, plus make it easier for the NRL to move us to Perth.
St George didn’t discover dinosaur bones by any chance?
Only if you believe in the old Testament.
I’m more of a Dianetics man myself..
I feel like this thread went off track when we went away from the idea of a team in the Solomon Islands.
The Solomon answer is probably the best solution.
We offer to both clubs to carve up the JV, and send them both to CC. The one that says that they would rather forego their rights and see the first grade side survive is obviously the true supporter.
I honestly had no idea. I’d always assumed that St George was an Englishman, due to the celebration of St George’s day/ the use of the cross/ the Camelot feel of the myth.
I guess it’s easy to overlook the roots of words or symbols that are familiar. Wearing a Dragons Jersey in Northern Ireland gave me a whole new insight into the historical significance of our strip. I’ll always proudly wear one. But I don’t think I’ll wear one again in Northern Ireland.
The Solomon Saints..
Well, at least skull would be happy..
Nah just Dragon Bones .......
