United fail on Marquee introduction

Melbourne United introduced Daniel Kickert to the fans in a short video presentation but the spell checking department overlooked a very important detail and that is Kickert played for the Nunawading Spectres as a junior and not the Nunawading Specters, since Melbourne United claim to represent the Nunawading Spectres and other Victorian clubs that played in the NBL one would expect the club to make sure they got the spelling of the team right.

This error adds to the ever growing list of errors made by Melbourne United including failing to check the wording on their history page with one example being the following;

“But when the Magic left the floor after Game 2 of the 1998 grand final – beaten by the Adelaide 36ers – it was for the final team, swept up in an off-season merger that created the Victoria Titans.”

  1. Wow. Tigers never did anything nearly as good as this with their social media to get the players out there to their fans. And you are worried about a spelling error…sad.


    • The spelling mistake is important when you want to make a good impression on the fans of the team you are honouring, it’s like Tony Abbott when he said ‘Canadia’ instead of Canada at an event honouring Canada.

      Also the Tigers never did anything like that because the owners were too busy pulling the Tigers down to make United.
