    Brilliant piece Ashley. This is total dictatorship and if the clubs accept this then football in this country really is dead and those given the task of minding their clubs have let all before them down. This must never be accepted. It flies in the face of Australian law and Australian life. Who do the FFA think they are?

    This makes absolutely no sense…

    My assumption is a Golden Wattle, Red Kangaroo Paw, Sturt Desert Pea or Waratah – all “references to flora” – would be deemed acceptable.

    These are the floral emblem’s of Australia, Western Australia, South Australia and News South Wales respectively and, as such, each carries a “national” – if regional – connotation.

    But a clubs’ logo or emblem can not “carry any ethnic, national, political, racial or religious connotations”.

    Or is Australian flora and fauna exempt, perhaps, on the grounds Australia is not considered a nation?

    Thanks All White. I agree that it should not be accepted. I wonder if Frank Lowy knows about this and how he feels in relation to his Hungarian roots.

    Brett, Very good point, just more confirmation that this has not been thought through.

    It was Great that you included the Bassendean Caledonian segment and yes more Soccer players joined up than Footy players . However I must remind you that many of them were quite recent migrants to OZ and UK was very dear to their hearts .
    A great Peice of writing and a Bloody shame we have to put up with FIFA and its complete stupidity ( not to mention the $$$$$$$$ bizzo )

    As All White ( and you ) perceive this could see a challenge in the courts and The Question arises who made FIFA the B all and End All of naming of clubs.. Time to get rid of the incompetents ..
