Why don't they just call it Beef?

A funny article in Stuff this morning explains how the Australians are trying to find a culinary name for Kangaroo.

Some suggestions are marsu (taken from marsupial), marla and wallagang (derived from the Aboriginal language), agaroo and the more unlikely Cyril, Skippy, yummy and roadkill.

I don’t know why they just don’t call it what they used to call Kangaroo when the exported it to the US.
