    We can’t have two Brisbane teams because more people live in New York.
    Great logic, thanks.

    A. The Steelers don't play in the NRL, so why would there be a Steelers jersey in NRL?
    B. The Phoenix jersey looks nothing like a Steelers jersey

    Though that may be true in practice, in theory they are still meant to be part of the NRL, and it's a bit of a shame that the Dragons have been slowly whitewashing their history from the club when considering that their colours and jersey fit in well with the Dragons brand.

    But you know whatever, if the Steelers wanted a say they should have held onto control of their end of the merger.
    The Hawks however did a jersey that was inspired by the Steelers, and was about as good as you could expect for a jersey without sleeves.

    I thought he meant that we couldn't have two teams under the name "New York" on account of the population disparity.

    Ehhh, when you have 9 Sydney teams, it is never gonna work

    Even now, "Sydney" Roosters is a shit name.

    Roosters should have remained " Sydney City". Tigers, Dragons, Sea-Eagles change to "Sydney United". Parra, Penrith, Sharks, Dogs to "Sydney". Souths relegated.

    I did love the commentators in the 90s screaming “Sydney City!!!”

    There shouldn't be a sydney or sydney city, not when there's another 8 teams in all of sydney, they should have stuck with Eastern Suburbs, Easts or East Sydney. Just like South Sydney or North Sydney, or North QLD, be Milk or water
    Not both

    I actually liked it too. Much preferred it. Made it distinct and rolled off the tongue brilliantly.

    Sydney City Roosters.

    As it is now they are the only side that you can’t refer to only by their “location” (with the possible exception of Wests Tigers).

    Eg you never hear “Canberra versus Sydney”... it automatically sounds like the Raiders are playing the Swans..

    But with Sydney City it was very different. They’re not my club but as a rugby league fan it’s a shame they didn’t stick with it.

    As a former Roosters Merch Manager I can tell you they sold a decent amount of merch to tourists who just wanted something with Sydney on it.

    Thought I’d have a play around with an online jersey designer to have a crack at the new Brisbane teams kit

    Option 1: Brisbane Jets Version A

    Option 2: Brisbane Jets Version B

    Option 3: East Coast Dolphins / Brisbane Dolphins

    I like option 1 the most

    A few more while I’m at it

    West Coast Pirates - The obvious choice for the 18th team in my opinion
    4F54ABE5-BEC5-4DE6-89BE-0A1A2FD7CA40.jpeg

    Auckland Orcas / Christchurch Orcas
    Either Auckland2 or a southern team, I think black yellow would be good unique colourway. Orcas would also be a pretty unique sporting team mascot

    Brisbane Firehawks. If you had to come with the worst name for a new NRL team, Firehawks would be up there. Besides the name they seem to have a pretty good bid. I’d imagine their colours would be something like this

    Good for business, but not for stable crowds, how many Japanese tourists are tuning in onto the NRL after picking up a sydney roosters polo? They'd do better if they had a city to themselves not sharing it with another 8 clubs, go to Adelaide and grow the game in Australia, not flogg off navy polos to irish backpackers

    I'd say Newtown wouldn't let this happen. Ala Redcliffe & their hissy fit over the GC wanting to use the Dolphins moniker.

    fun fact with my Steelers vs GB jersey, theres 2 sets floating around.
    The ones with names on them were used as promotional items before the game, Piccinelli actually wore 15 in the match.

    The ones worn in the game have BHP Steel on the top of the back like the normal jerseys.
