Welcome to Team Australia's unofficial team thread. Unofficial? Well, more interim thread until the official team threads become available.

Final team lineup is:

21.gif vlado
21_F.gif Lonni
21.gif millsa
21_F.gif naomik
21.gif Covert_Oddity
21.gif MichaelC
21.gif Pug-H
21.gif dougi555
21_F.gif RamblinR
31.gif GIS_boy

Not too shabby, I must say. Our team has an average percentile of 68.90% placing us in the top 10 of the 25 team currently finalised. Also, we were the 23rd team to finalise, so we're not at risk of being dropped should there be less than 48 teams come time.

I'm open for suggestions about the team name. Are we happy with "Team Australia" or should we just be "Australia" or do we go with something different... eg "Rogue Wombats"?

Also, once we're happy with name, input on team logo is welcome. The current logo was a quick and nasty I knocked together in 5 minutes... if you have any suggestions please throw them my way... or if you're handy with a pencil or Illustrator, go nuts... if you like the current one, I'll give it some work to make it look better i.e. like the kangaroo is actually holding the camera.

Finally, for now, in the DPC Olympics of the past, we had team numbers and shirt for our team banner... I'm happy to do the same for the DPL if there's interest from you guys... let me know if you have a preferred shirt number.

Okay... let's rock!

I like Wombats. How about "Wombats Eleven" or something like that (one better than Wombats Ten.... ;-Þ )?

Names .... hmmmm. Suggestions (trying to keep it Australian)

Flying Emus
Uluru Warriors

OK, others I've thought of are even worse but may help others with ideas.

Taipan Venom
Killer Taipans
Deadly Taipans
Laughing Kookaburras
Boxing Kangaroos
Aussie Battlers

RE team names, I like the current 'Team Australia', nothing can be more Australian than that...

And great job Vlado on getting the team together so quickly. :)

I like Team Australia too. For the logo - I like the one that Millsa originally submitted, but obviously the team name would need to be changed, and I didn't like the colour of the wording.

I'm happy to go with the flow on the name/logo issue, although 'Wizards of Oz' did pass my mind for a second.

To complete the team feel (and for a bit of a laugh) I would like to suggest that for the duration of the season we all change our profile pics to something appropriate, for example wearing a slouch hat or bush hat with dangling corks etc.

That was a quickly thrown together one as a joke for vlado, but I actually dont mind the image, but not not the lettering or title.

And the "Wizards of OZ" has some potential. Maybe the "Wizards of Aus"
04/06/2010 08:43:33 PM · #9
And quick and dirty on that theme

I guess I should declare my preference for "Team Australia"... but I'm somewhat of a minimalist, I must declare...

We've got a while before we have to finalise name a logo.

Tony... you're getting better at logo design ;)

I like the "Wizards of Oz (Aus)" sound.............

Also, team shirt, can I get a 555 on mine........ :)

I'm hoping that by being in India I can bring an alternate slant to some of the comps........

I might be in India in July for a couple of weeks, though I'll be in Chennai which is nowhere near where you are, hope to get some great shots when I'm there though.

Okay... 17 hours to go before teams/league is finalised (supposedly)... looks like "Team Australia" is the consensus. Team logo... Tony's seems the most popular so far... anyone else have any designs they want to propose? I'll get working on the team shirts and banners.
04/11/2010 08:23:23 AM · #20
I'll have number 6 if available thanks

Here's the coat of arms concepts reworked for your consideration

team_australia-yellow.gif team_australia-green.gif team_australia-white.gif

Larger version... here.

My membership has lapsed because the paypal payment didn't come through in time... so I'm hoping to comes through tomorrow and I get my blue shirt back... that's why these are on Picasa.

Bump!

Sorry Vlado - that's very cute!

I like the yellow one best. Thanks for all your hard work.
04/11/2010 08:06:40 PM · #24
Is it better than the existing one or Tony's Kangaroo one?

The logo contenders:

a) 95.jpg

b) Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_865805.jpg

c) team_australia-yellow.gif

Please vote for your preferred logo.
04/11/2010 08:25:04 PM · #25
I vote for A

Appreciate the effort your putting in whichever one we use.
