Los Angeles MLR team named

Recommended Posts

I like where this is going! Will this guy run out of drinks he invented or teams he can name them after first? Will his business get big enough to rename the G League the GILeague?

 

Also, writing this post made me realize there are goalposts in the LA.

Major League Rugby. I know the league needs cash, but they should have told this guy that one bad nickname based on a drink is one too many, let alone two.

I give you the Los Angeles Giltinis... The same guy who owns the Austin Gilgronis also owns the LA team. Adam Gilchrist is the owner and he co-founded F45 drinks. The colours are unique but the logo and name are something else.

Breaks my heart... this attempt at rugby in the US looks sadder and sadder every day. Maybe some day it won’t be a laughingstock :(

Adam Gilchrist is the name of a very famous retired cricket player and this seemed wildly off brand for him, so I'm glad it's some other moron with more money than sense.

Are these teams extremely cheap? Or does this guy have a ton of money?

Pretty cheap since it's a startup. Not as much as an USL team which costs around $30 million.

Holy crap that really good. Can we rename the thread so more people see this rather than the gil-bomination?

I'm not sure how to... that is if I am allowed to.

This is offensive to anyone named Gil or has the last name Gilchrist or anything similar. I petition that we call this team the LA Rugby Club.

Always thought Jackals would be a identity name for a sports team.
