    One bid down (or correction = Merged)
    Three left, who is the more appealing mascot out of the current bids

    *Dolphins of Morton Bay/Suncorp (Redcliffe backed)

    *Firehawks of Brisbane CBD (Easts Tigers backed)

    *Western Corridor Jets/aka (joint Ipswich/Livermore backed Bombers)

    As far as brand and logo I like them all and dont see any clear favourite. Firehwawks is having some TM issues at the moment but would be quite unusual for an NRL brand, Jets and Dolphins are both a bit NFL but thats par for the course for Brisbane it seems!

    Jets and Dolphins have extensive history in Rugby League.

    Eagles is far more NFL-influenced.

    Dolphins #1 but I like the Jets brand and I'm glad they junked the horrid Bombers name and got together with Ipswich.

    Firehawks is stupid and it's pretty funny that Queensland Netball are opposing the trademark. The Firehawks, nature's arsonist.

    I just hope the Jets are Green and White. Unfortunately I think they’re sticking with the Navy and Orange.

    Firehawks is a terrible name. I know all the suggestions are ‘American’ but a lot of successful NRL clubs names were blatant USA ripoffs

    Brisbane Bulls -wear black and brown
    Brisbane Browns (Brown snake) -wear black and brown
    Brisbane Bengals (Keep their tiger history and have an instant rivalry with Wests Tigers) -wear red
    East Coast Dolphins (if the bid merged)
    -wear red

    Any of those are better rugby league club names than the Firehawks

    What are the proposed Firehawk colours?

    Firehawks will use orange, yellow and blue.

    What if they change the name to Raptors?

    Well that’s unfortunate. So 2 bids choosing orange and blue/navy.

    I said it another post but if you look at the current NRL colour palette, the comp could use more red and green, NOT blue

    Raptors doesn’t feel very rugby league to me

    Wynnum Manly should join with Easts to become the East Coast Seagulls. Red and green.

    I meant the seperate colours of red and green as the main colour for 2 separate clubs. Red and green together is the same as Souths

    All 3 bids are great in their own right.
    Jets, covering south & western greater Brisbane is a good tie in to Amberley RAAF base & Archerfield Airport. Hopefully they get get some agreement with Newtown Jets in NSW & Newtown is also a suburb of Ipswich

    Dolphins bid confirm. They will play in red and white and add in another colour,

    “The Dolphins NRL team will keep the Red and White colours but will add an additional colour to the NRL team. The plan is to engage the local SEQ community to help decide what additional colour should be added for the new Dolphins NRL team.”

    Should be aztec gold, they already use silver/grey as a trim anyways, need to pick a color that represents QLD then it should be Gold, which works with Sunshine coast or Easts should they ever decide to merge into the party, but it should be a main additional color not just a trim..
    and if they did merge that bid would be a lot better for the NRL in terms of catchment than what the western corridor are offering

    For what it's worth, the trademark for the names Brisbane Dolphins and Brisbane Jets have both been filed for by the same consultancy firm on the same day. The trademark for the Brisbane Firehawks name has been filed for by Easts.

    Of the three names, I like Dolphins and Firehawks the most - but I like the meaning behind the Jets name.

    If the Firehawks name can't go ahead due to opposition from Netball Queensland, Raptors would be a good substitute. It's the same idea and might even be better because it would minimise the potential association with bushfires.

    Interesting they both use the same consultancy company. In Dolphins case they are taking the safest option "Brisbane Dolphins" in their point of view.

    I won't complain if Brisbane gets another 2 clubs in 2022, but I'd like to see Perth get in as well for all the hard work their volunteers have put in. Good work should be rewarded.

    Time to merge a few Sydney teams to make the game stronger. Balmain and North Sydney to become North Sydney Tigers, based in the inner north/west. Magpies and Bulldogs to become West Sydney Bulldogs, based at Macarthur. Manly to NSW Cup.

    North Sydney Tigers
    Sydney Roosters
    South Sydney Rabbitohs
    West Sydney Bulldogs
