Why? Who made you the color combo kingpin

I know you said you were colour blind when you were calling pink gold a while back but surely you can guess why another blue & yellow team would be a boring choice. Eels, Cowboys, Titans, Raiders (away). That doesn’t include the other 7 teams using blue.

Firehawks can merge with Ipswich and go Orange & Green. Force could use yellow & black. Easy.

If the Firehawks plan on using blue in their jersey then it should be on the chest and in the shape of the Brisbane River. That'll make it unique and scream "Brisbane" to those who are familiar with the city. I'd prefer that to a chevron.

Just a shame the cleverness ended when they called them ‘Force’.
They should be called the Farce.

I don't think a gold blue combo matters as long as its used differently to the other teams, if you look at the current teams, none of them really use gold as a stand out main color, they basically use it a tertiary trim, and gold and black are WAs state colors, so if this was ever to eventuate, gold and black being the main with a blue trim... Firehawks have stated they want to use that exact color set up

Firehawks arent getting in and force aren’t going to become an nrl club, I wouldn’t be worried about the colours of either lol

I wouldn’t discount the former.
I would if they continue down the path they're going.

If the NRL goes to Brisbane again it'll be in a disparate part of the city that will have as little impact on the other clubs in the SEQ as possible in theory. Likely the west of the city; Ipswich, Redbank, Springfield, sort of area. The Broncos, Dolphins, and Titan's would openly revolt at the suggestion of anything different.

The nosiest and most powerful members of the RL community, including those in power at the NRL, also have an obsession with "heritage" and "tradition", and there's no heritage or tradition in a team called the Queensland Firehawks, based in the centre of the city, but playing half their games all over the joint. Even if the Firehawks bid was objectively better, which certainly isn't a given, all of those types would come out in an ignorant uproar to dismiss their proposal as soon as they go public, then will fall over themselves to back the e.g. Jets to get the license.

IF they even bother to revisit going back to brisbane, not for another decade at least, i think everyone has fallen head over heels for the dolphins, that they aren't willing to wedge another team right in the middle of all three, considering broncos took one for the team in terms of expansion in there local area do you really think they'll be happy to let another suburbian club enter nearby, but this time from the other side... again...
i think we are done in SEQ.. for a long while atleast

Broncos won't be keen on another team. Neither will the Titans or Dolphins. It won't stop V'landys from putting a team in the western corridor if the business case stacks up.

If everything came down to what the Broncos want then we wouldn't have the Titans and Dolphins. The days of the Broncos running the show died long ago.

Truth is we've got limited options for expansion.

Perth is a rusted on fumbleball market smaller than Brisbane. It has fewer juniors than Melbourne. The bloke pushing for a Perth-based team sponsored the Reds. The Reds went bankrupt. TV ratings for AwFuL in Perth are shit. @Perth Red blames it on the Eagles and Dockers having shit seasons, yet the Broncos were the most watched team when they got the wooden spoon in 2020. Cowboys, Titans and Dolphins had shit seasons on the field, but still drew almost twice as many viewers in Brisbane than the Eagles and Dockers in Perth. It proves Perth is a very fickle market and will rely on a Melbourne Storm model to carve out a sustainable niche.

Adelaide has no bid.

NZ2 has no bid.

North Sydney Bears want a team, but are in an oversaturated market. Their non-negotiables don't help their cause.

If Dolphins continue to average 30k+ at Lang Park and pull strong sponsorship deals and TV ratings then Brisbane 3 is a certainty within the next decade. Brisbane Tigers are ready to go and are the safest option.

don't forget AFL will take over Brisbane because its a superior product to NRL which has no hope of growing outside its heartland.
