    Would it be at all possible for the Bombers and the Ipswich Jets to combined bids. Jets is a much better name than the Bombers whilst Brisbane covers a larger area than Ipswich. The Ipswich jets can still play as a reserve side in the QLD Cup. I just can't see Ipswich ever getting an NRL team and atlas this way they would be part of the bid, might even get to use there jerseys.

    I know it is a long bow to draw but the association with terrorism and the ASADA/WADA Essendon saga should be enough to get this name changed.

    Essendon have been the Bombers for over a 140 years, and at least they have an airport in the suburb.

    The name has no true meaning to Brisbane and no real reason to have it.

    Say what you want about the Titans, Broncos and Cowboys names but at least there was a method to their madness as they were all at trying to replicate the success of a brandname in the NFL.

    Given there is no expansion they can call themselves what they like as it won't make any difference.

    An additional Brisbane team, whatever they're called, doesn't come under the heading of Expansion - more like consolidation of the game and provision of choice in an established League area. If a city of more than 2 million can't support two teams there's something wrong. You can only wonder why there is so much opposition in Brisbane.

    The Broncos dont want the competition...

    Personally, i think the 2nd Brissy team (#UpTheBrothers) would be great in pushing the Broncos to do more in bringing in fans.

    Right now they are the big fish of the NRL, but if a 2nd Brisbane team came in and started looking like exceeding the Bronx numbers for crowds/membership, itll light a fire under the Broncos officials and start a quasi-ArmsRace.

    (The same might be true for Auckland too)

    the second Brisbane team should be called the Brisbane Red Bulls. We need a second B team for numerous including that presently clubs think Broncos are to influential with headquarters. It appears as though there isn't a second team because the Broncos won't allow it.

    It's the same reason the sharks have never won a premiership.
    The Broncos haven't allowed it either.

    The more i think about this the more I'm convinced there will not be a 2nd NRL club playing out of Sun Corp permanently
    I'm thinking now the next NRL club in Qld will be playing out of the Ipswich area, though intially they might have to play out of Sun Corp while their own stadium is developed.

    If the nrl expand it will Perth, Nz2 or Adelaide.
    Although it seems the nsw cup & qcup will expand to 16 teams each

    You can't blame them and for me it sends out an alarming message as they way the game is run in this country.

    For me its about expansion, and not just about the Bombers bid.
    Fumbleball and Soccer are expanding and we are not.
