The Catholic Church is petitioning the St Kilda Saints to “please, already, drop the word Saints from the name of the AFL football team.”
“You can call yourselves the St. Kilda Devils,” the petition asserts.
It is not yet known how The Saints organization will respond. Will Nick Riewoldt tell the church to buzz off, or will St. Kilda comply with the Church’s request? And does their primary allegiance lie with the Church–or their Football team?
