    They would have to be Western Sydney Bulldogs to avoid being sued by AwFuL, as they have a Western Bulldogs.

    I think Western Sydney Bulldogs can work as Wests Magpies and Canterbury Bulldogs both used the classic "v" design back in the day, and Canterbury already use black in some of their kits.

    Black jersey with a white “v” for a home strip and a blue jersey with a white “v” for a
    The away strip :thumbsup:

    maybe they could team up with a A-league side and build a mini-bankwest stadium in Liverpool??

    A stadium out there would be good.

    Merge North Sydney with Manly.

    North Sydney Sea Eagles
    Western Sydney Bulldogs
    South Sydney Rabbitohs
    Sydney Roosters

    I was responding to another person's post.

    Sydney Wests merging with Canterbury-Bankstown would allow Brisbane Tigers to enter the NRL under that brand and give old Balmain fans a team that they can follow.

    Isn’t there unrest within the merged west’s-tigers club?

    90% of it is owned by the Magpies. The Balmain side has little money.

    Are the Brisbane tigers well funded/asset rich like the dolphins?

    Sounds like a match made in heaven to me then :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    brisbane tigers based in east Brisbane and playing out of suncorp stadium which would leave the dolphins to be based out of their home ground in Redcliffe.

    Brisbane tigers
    Moreton bay dolphins
    Brisbane broncos
    Gold Coast titans
    North Queensland cowboys

    Wests giving up the Tigers brand, or whatever other scenario that sees Easts able to enter the NRL as the Brisbane Tigers, is nonsense that will never happen.

    Honestly it's a waste of everybody's time to even seriously suggest it.

    dolphins couldn’t thrive on crowds of less than 12k and hardly any corporate box sales. Playing in Redcliffe is a sure fire recipe for financial disaster for them.

    So old Benny is wanting to buy the Tigers. I missed if this is minor ownership or over 50% owner

    Brisbane Bengals would suffice. It would be funny as they would be just down the road from the Brisbane Lions, so their main competitor would be an AwFuL club and not the Broncos. It would be the battle of the cats and help RL make inroads an area AwFuL regards as their territory.
