Dont worry I'm just entertaining what ever pops into my head. Got 15 mins to take some meds so thanks for chat.
Where are you, in Sydney?
There was some sort of attack there tonight apparently.

It’s the affect of pluralisation.
The Melbourne team collectively can’t be known as the Storm ‘singular’ just as all the other 15 teams are named as an object that is in plural form.
Consider it from another perspective would people be asking the same question if the New Zealand team were known as the Aukland ‘past’ or current New Zealand Warrior?
Gold Coast Titan?
After all the name is in representation of the club as a whole.

In the end I believe Melbourne did it too create this dissimilarity and to ultimately lead to this debate.

I laugh every time some one says the Storms, but technically they are correct.

Edit. Nevermind the examples, they too can only be Plural.
The plural form of Storm is Storms.
So ultimately the club got it wrong in the first place when it named them.
Pluralisation…I learnt a new word today lol

I agree with this but I do think some commentators take the piss as well.

Some phrases don't make sense either.

Waiter: “Would you like a super salad?”
Me: “Yes, that sounds awesome.”
Waiter looked at me confused. How did I know he meant soup or salad 🤔

It took me over 20 years of my life to realize that all intensive purposes isnt even close to correct. Its all intents and purposes… I cringe to think of how many times I used all intensive purposes in my uni papers.

When I was a boy I always thought “Euthanasia” was “Youth in Asia” and couldn’t figure out why it was a big controversial issue. Yeah there are kids living in Asia, so what?

Love it. There’s some other tricky ones that stumped me up over the years. Definitely was stumped by youth in Asia! I’ll get back to you if I recall others.

Nip this in the bud? Butt? Still haven’t figured this one out.

Nip it in the bud refers to pruning..say a rose. If you want to end that part of the rose you nip it in the bud [same as saying in a conversation, if you want to end it you nip it in the bud 😊
