Are United becoming Ballers?

Melbourne United seem to be in two minds about their name, the newspapers and the scoreboard may say Melbourne United but the crowd is encouraged to chant ¬†‘B-A-L-L-E-R-S Ballers!’, the team Mascot is named Mr Baller and the Melbourne United shop is called the Ballers Store, common sense would say that the crowd should chant U-N-I-T-E-D United!, perhaps keep Mr Baller as the mascot¬†and the store be called something like The Melbourne United Store.

Could it be that Melbourne United will soon become the CTI Melbourne United Ballers? Some may say that calling the team Ballers will be an improvement on the usage of United but it will also lead to people believing that United are making things up as they go along and that would not boost anybody’s confidence that the team will be having a long life in the NBL.
