    or perhaps East Coast Dolphins encompassing also the Sunshine Coast, people who don't like the Broncos, and perhaps a safeguard JUST incase the Titans fall over?

    Personally think ECD would be too vague, I guess the key with this bid is how many people who live there can make it down to Suncorp every fortnight ?

    Don't profess to know a lot about Brisbane I presume the easiest way would be by train. Anyhow I think have a strong leagues club backing can only help. Something the Titans should have done instead of the COE.

    The Stadium is magnificent with plenty of room to increase the capacity to 20,000+ if necessary.

    I did detect a rather un-Dolphin-like aspect on the opening which I might share with those in the know: the ground announcer had changed since my last visit. The new chap had a rustic, read-headed sound to him! Could it be? I believe it was.

    I hope they future proof the stadium with provisions to increase seated capacity from 10,000 to 20,000. If the Moreton Bay Dolphins ever want to play NRL have to have at least a minimum of 20,000 seats. With plenty of parking around and a heavy rail line 5 mins by bus, has a lot of potential. Moreton Bay area population projected to go over 500,000 by 2030.

    Couldn't Parra be called the Westish Sydney Eels, and Cronulla the Southern Coastal Sharks, and Manly the Northern Coastal Sea Rats, or St George some other bullshit.

    It's the Redcliffe Dolphins. Support them or don't. Made up names for traditional clubs are reviled.

    actually if the nrl had its time again after the super league disaster they probably would of went with
    Western Sydney eels
    Northern beaches sea eagles
    Southern Sharks
    Sydney city Roosters
    Lol. Seriously I was reacting to the previous post which says change Redcliffe to Morten bay. I know that is the regions name but Personally I would rather it stay Redcliffe but if they were to change it why not North Brisbane.

    I was replying to both posts but:

    1. North Brisbane bears no relation to the city of Redcliffe.
    2. The Northern Suburbs Devils also known as Norths
    3. Ask any fan of those Sydney clubs how they like the idea of a generic name change
    4. Made up names are fine for a soulless business bid for the NRL which is not the product of the aspirations of a proud club
    5. Doing so costs diehard support, the lifeblood of the club in tough times.
    6. I am clearly biased, if it was another club I'd disagree in principle but not fire up.

    Nothing personal, but try and steal the emblem and we'll sue your ass (ask the Titans), try and change the name and it's fighting time. :)

    PS - the NRL doesn't name the clubs.

    If they are ever in the NRL it will be definitely under a new name.

    I'd report your post on the grounds of gross indecency if I wasn't so generously disposed towards you normally.
