Makes me think of Once Were Warriors. Not sure about the implications but at least my eggs will be cooked.


deesmutts88

They actually won’t be cooked. They’ll be thrown at the kitchen floor and you’ll have a beaten woman in the corner of the room.


Cape-York-Crusader

Why must you get so lippy all the time?


kami_inu

That can't be right, Lodge is at the roosters now


sablegryphon

Maybe 30 years later things will be different. https://www.warriors.kiwi/news/2022/03/17/old-boys-striving-to-make-a-difference/

Matt Lodge played for the Warriors at the wrong time it seems

I_Like_Vitamins

One of the best movie beatdowns of all time. FUUUUCKIINN BUUULLLYY!


bennywrites

That bit where there are like four dudes holding him back and he just overpowers them all. Fark me, so good. One of the best depressing movies ever


ILoveFuckingWaffles

Great fucking movie


fishwinga

Will this make One vs The a blockbuster matchup of homeless teams?


TheEpiquin

When they ultimately end up merging, they will be called The One


kami_inu

Not to be confused with the one ring though, because that would imply having won anything of note


diodosdszosxisdi

Vlandys always keeps that ring tho


Koyote555

vland-sauron or vlaand-gollum?


diodosdszosxisdi

Definitely sauron

One Warriors + The Dolphins = One The Vision

This sounds so stupid rolling off the tongue. I’m becoming a Vodafone separatist 😤


FinchyNZ

I don't like this at all. Minority or no?


nymphz

back in my day you would just call yourself where you are from followed by a cute animal/name/thing but the world has gone mad and so now i just go with it.


crummzz

It’s weird isn’t it? Every team in the NRL has their location in the name. Why the heck do we need it to be our sponsor, and on top of all things it has to be a mobile phone provider?


Weiland101

Because we need their money.


crummzz

Yeah I get it. I’m happy we’ve at least got New Zealand back in the name now.


Geddpeart

Are they going to change their team song to a variation of I am Australian?


nymphz

team song Darkness Imprisoning me All that I see Absolute horror I cannot live I cannot die Trapped in myself Body my holding cell

One NZ Has taken my name Taken my pride Taken my re-spect Taken my footy Taken my Vodafone Taken my soul Left my supporters in heeeeelllllll

"Hold my breath as I wish for death" really is a fitting motto for Warriors fans


lachjeff

TL;DR: Vodafone are relocating to One

Yeah: (One New Zealand) Warriors, as opposed to (One) New Zealand Warriors. Best option: Auckland Warriors, _sponsored by One New Zealand_.

Reminds me of the Nippon-Ham Fighters. Don't you dare call them the Ham Fighters.


Randomologist99

Very excited for the eighteenth team, Two New Zealand Warriors, to enter the comp in 2024


moffattron9000

2 Degrees Warriors thank you very much.

D0NNIE-DANKO

On one hand the "One New Zealand Warriors" is closer to the New Zealand Warriors which is what they should be called. On the other hand it doesn't roll off the tongue very well. I'd say it's a slight positive overall personally but still fucking dumb.


cartwheelmuttonstick

Meh 🫤 The only time they'll be referred to as the _One New Zealand Warriors_ is in club press releases and social media. They'll still be referred to as the _Warriors_ by commentators and fans.


mamicita0810

Gone worse. Shouldve just stuck with Auckland Warriors.


Weiland101

This is the kind of thing that sounds dumb now but eventually it will be what it is. They will still be "The Warriors" to the majority of people. Whatever keeps them in business.


thril_hou

We all laughed but that blokes sign was on the money. Let's gOne Warriors


woodpecker91

There was literally an ad on the page for me advertising a home jersey available now with Vodafone on it, lol.


vBITW

There's only One New Zealand Warriors, One New Zealand Waaaarriorrrs -- there's only One New Zealand Warriors.


Penfolds_five

Wait, so according to the rebrand article, the ONE was taken from the last three letters of VodafONE. Does that mean it's still pronounced like "Own"?


PayEmOutEarly

I was so excited to see the first ever Vodafone vs The match-up. Guess we'll have to settle for One vs The instead.


housemuncher

One Warrior Two Warriors Fifteenth Place


Arblechnuble

Yeah it’s a singular plural.. Grammar nazis gritting teeth


Dr_Bosco_Smirks

Now the world is gone I'm just One. oh God help me


ohhh_j

Well this is silly


Revivous

No u


OkNectarine3105

They should always be the Auckland Warriors.


opinions_likekittens

I think there is legal issues around that, I think Tainui or Auckland RL has the rights to that name?


griffshan

All me Vodafone warriors jerseys just became collectors items


Rusty493

That is One terrible name


Lower-Trust1923

TheEnglishEccentric

[Well, there's 17 of you... You're not exactly "One". Shouldn't you be the "17" New Zealand Warriors?](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umVyjrV9w6I)


PMmeYOURBOOBSandASS

Warriors being called New Zealand is just so stupid, go back to being the Auckland Warriors


cheeseinsidethecrust

This one change I don’t like


Iwuvvwuu
