I was hoping it would be a bear in a duffle coat.

I know it does, just couldn't resist. I am in full support of any expansion of our great game?

Unless they all of Incan descent, it's a dumb name.

Where are you from?

You're doing a fine job Pulga in expanding RL. 

Thanks mate although I've only really had a small part to do with this project. I've only really consulted on this one.

Very excited to see where this goes.

Following the recent news item on the BBC Sport website concerning the other code (below), might the politically-correct brigade indeed ask for the team to be renamed so as to not offend the indigenous people from that country ?

Peruse the following .... 

"The Canterbury Crusaders are to lose their knight and sword logo following a review into the club's branding after the Christchurch mosque attacks in March, in which 51 people were killed.   Concerns were raised after the attacks about the association of the Crusaders' name with the medieval religious wars between Christians and Muslims."

Whatever the name let's hope it peru-ves to be a success and that they sell marmalade sandwiches at the ground.

I think this is more like the white New Zealanders doing the haka. 

Nobody cares and hopefully nobody ever will.

Another bit of good news and great stuff.

Though I am expecting Parky et al to arrive and say it's not what Perez promised!

A very colonial attitude. That's why it's a dumb nickname and caricature.

Stop projecting your problems onto the people whose opinion actually matters.

Ask a Peruvian if it bothers them. If it doesn't then zip it.

You've got colonial problems if you think in an Incan is the same as a Peruvian. They should have a say in who uses their culture, not some some Australian expat. , Peruvian or not.

Have you spent much time in Peru, Smoketrail? Almost everyone in the country claims "Indian" descent, the exceptions mainly being recent immigrants from Japan etc. The biggest selling soft drink in the country is Inca Kola. I've never heard anyone express dislike at the national football team being called "Los Incas" - even people from the minority non-Quechua  speaking groups.
