More talk of moving forward by looking backwards

Heritage vs Expansion: Full time for the Bears or one final chance?

the league owns the names and logos, teams just have a license to use them

therefore, it will never happen

While I think Dolphins is pretty dumb, I don’t get why they aren’t associating themselves with Brisbane.

Anyway, I think we are trying to go the full gauntlet of NFL teams in the NRL. The Dolphins join the Broncos, Cowboys, Sea Eagles (Seahawks/Eagles), Titans, Panthers, Tigers (Bengals) and Raiders, along with the defunct Steelers, Bears, Giants, Chargers and Rams. Expect the 18th team to be between the Perth Patriots, Wellington 49ers and Rockhampton Redskins

What's in a name like the Dolphins?

why not Brisbane Dolphins?

Parra don’t even prop up their club with their own juniors

and they aren’t my club

How can the Wests Tigers reach their potential?

Nathan Cayless ahead of a couple of them. 39 tests, World Cup winning captain, 270+ NRL games, captain his team in 2 GF appearances

Is Benji Marshall the best Kiwi rugby league player ever?

the worst thing about Super League, other then Super League itself, was we ended up afterwards with 20 teams when it should have been 12-14. Consolidation ,in the name of peace, should have happened – new footprints merged with existing entities. Adelaide Sharks, Perth Bunnies, etc

Utoikamanu, Luciano and the fullback are their best 3.

Hasting was going to play 13,but will start in the halves with Douhei out

How can the Wests Tigers reach their potential?

c’mon, it’s a long drive form Ashfield to Campbelltown.

How can the Wests Tigers reach their potential?

Nope, don’t care abut your rules. I cannot accept any great Raiders teams that does not include Albert Fulivai.

In regards to the player of the year award I can understand it going to Brooks. Unlike Doueihi, he at least attempts to tackle

How can the Wests Tigers reach their potential?

It’s doubtful he would have represented Australia, that’s how good he was

Hinged never went around a horse last start. She started $21, and its rare for a Waller horse to be competitive in a Group 1 race at that price. I think it surprised them. Although the track was rated good it was definitely Slow at race time. She may be just a wet tracker

Godolphin, Oliver, Street Boss, Guineas. Why change a winning formula? Heresy is the one for me

You always find those ones deep down that I find also. I will be one Achira e/w the rest of this campaign

Was he a future Immortal or in a class below that

About 3 levels below that

“The final point on Marshall is his character. It’s a measure of the man that he never threw in the towel when he struggled to gain a starting role, he dug in and worked his way back to grade, instead of bolting to Super League or overseas rugby.”

Actually, he did just that, after being dropped in 2013 he sought a release to play for the Auckland Blues

The North Sydney Bears don’t exist. The Roosters reserve grade team is a team that plays in red and black and is fully funded by the Roosters. They use a name and logo owned by the NSWRL, and are administrated by the Roosters and the North Sydney District Junior Rugby League. Nobody affiliated with the North Sydney Bears organisation, the one that floats their name to the media every 6 months, has anything to do with the NSW Cup team, the womens team, Mathews or Ball team or the junior district league. They are a name on a piece of paper and pipe dream of people living in 1978, and leech off everything the above do

The Glebe Reds exist. The North Sydney Bears do not

Redcliffe Dolphins set to be named NRL's newest club

no, I’m not. It’s all relative

You could keep drilling down, and Qld Cup fans not being interested in the Mal Meninga Cup

Redcliffe Dolphins set to be named NRL's newest club

I bet he remembers Manlys second last premiership

The NRL is expanding. Is there a place for the Bears?

your need to stop thinking everything is black and white. I said most, not all. A minority care, most people don’t. Just because you are in the minority it does not mean this is not true.

Ask the average league fan who won the last 3 Qld Cups. Ask who were the coaches. Ask them to name 3 players from each team. Ask them to name each team. They can’t do it

Just because people like a sub-set of league it doesn’t mean league fans care about the sub-set. Just like a vast majority of league fans don’t care for the English Super League. Not many cared about the Holden Cup. Just like soccer fans in Australia and NPL, rugby fans and GPS, cricket fans who follow grade cricket (or even Shield), its everywhere. Most fans just don’t care

Redcliffe Dolphins set to be named NRL's newest club

It’s the reality of millions of league fans that don’t turn up or watch state league games

It’s not elitist, it’s reality

massive overs

the only thing preventing that will be the name Bennett. But he will be the selling point for the fringe players, not the big name.
