THE TOON v BROKEN NOSE BRUCE'S TIGER LILLYS ***SATURDAY AFTERNOOON!

Updated '2:25pm bells' Thorsday 19th September 2013
HULL FANS AT LAST WEEKS GAME AGAINST CARDIFF 'RED WINGS'!

We now torn wor attention to Saturday's game against The Tigers of Hull and their fans are up in arms aboot their new owners decision to change their name from Hull City AFC to Hull Tigers for marketin' purposes!
This iz a very very worryin' situation, az once one club gans doon this road, then, like 'copycats', more are sure to follow!

To try and 'Americanise' futbaall in this way iz anothaa erosion of the 150 year history of wor traditions of havin' clubs with simple names like 'City', 'Town', 'County' and of course 'United' bein' banished to the dustbin, if we are not careful!

They of course have aalready done this in Rugby League with Bradford Northern becomin' Bradford Bulls, Wakefield Trinity becomin' Wakefield Wildcats and Leeds RLFC becomin' the ridiculously named Leeds Rhinos! <(when did yoo ever see a rhino runnin' through the streets of Leeds!?)

"It's MY trainset' and I'll do what I like!" Owners, who have absolutlee ne interest in the clubs history, (or wot the fans think!)are hell bent on changin' club colours (Cardiff), groond names (yee naa who!) and now this!!! <(wot next we ask worsels???)

Think aboot it!---'The Toon Army Magpies', 'The Boro Smog Monsters', 'The Hartlepool Monkey Hangers' and 'The Sund'lind SMB's, could be comin to a toon near yoo in the not tooo distant future!

Divvint bet against it!
