Minor NRL tediums

I created a threat for minor NRL tediums. I have 2:

1) Most teams are shortened to their mascott, e.g., Penrith Panthers become 'Panthers', Melbourne Storm becomes 'Storm' (see image from NRL.com below). Yet, for some reason, Wests Tigers remain as 'West Tigers', instead of becoming 'Tigers'. This is not acceptable.

2) Team territory is not contiguous. See below that the 2 Tigers Sydney locations are not next to each other. Also, Sharks territory disrupts Illawara and St George territory such that they are not contiguous.

You can't start a thread about tedious NRL disaccordances without mentioning the most obvious one in the non-contiguous Wests Tigers teetering at 7th on that ladder.

Have I missed out on some sort of Tigers success that has caused all the peanuts to come out and try and complain?

Wests Tigers are Wests Tigers due to the JV agreement. The Magpies folk don't like them being referred to as Tigers alone. Hence both names.

I'm sorry but that is too confusing. If we want new fans then we need to modernise.

Goodbye, Magpie.
