The Hawks to re-instate Illawarra into the name

They got rid of the trash coach, trash GM, and tried to relinquish the trash City.

Obviously they don't feel much love outside of Illawarra so have to come crawling back and want to lean on 4379 members.

LoL 4379, someone needs to tell the Hawks Jobseeker has reduced and now comes with mutual obligations.

Wollongong is a lovely town.

Jobseeker has actually put more money into the locals pockets.

They are having trouble attracting any sponsors and most local loyal supporters have walked away. While Goorgian was a big name 10 years ago it's not attracting the locals back.

With that kind of statement you're in the same boat, Hawkie.

Illawarra is the region and the Hawks have always positioned themselves as the region.

Great marketing. Alienate the people of Illawarra from the get go, and then when you realise their is nothing else to hang your hat on, go grovelling back.

Could the damage really be that severe when they never played a game as just the Hawks?

I rĂȘally hope that they get the sponsors and the fans in this season as the product will be so much better than post Aaron Brooks injury was last season.

Nice ploy to galvanise an otherwise apathetic Illawarra base, make them earn it!

Ploy lol, the Illawarra base are totally pissed right off. LK backed the wrong horse and ownership group down there. They had better be a top of the ladder team or they won't even fill the old snake pit.
