The team was named the Crusdaers in 1996, in a predominantly Christian country. Was there even a Muslim community in the region back then? I'm asking this, because if I look at my own town, up to 2001, there wasn't a mosque or even a muslim community in town or in a 100km radius. We had different christian denominations and churches, and we also had a very big Jewish community. Now we have a mosque, and the Jewish community is getting smaller on a yearly basis. With that said, Since, 1994 SA have been very open to different religions and the freedom to it's people to be of different faiths. Whereas I get the idea, that New Zealand has always been a country with Christianity faith following, and other religions only recently started to grow there. Which I think should be considered a mitigating factor.
