No offence, but you have an extremely surface level understanding of what's going on. The idea that the Titans failed because of their "plastic" identity is just nonsense (which I won't go into h

Bid applications are to be submitted by 5pm Monday 14th June.   If the bid numbers stack up financially, it's expected an announcement will come at the end of July. 

They'd be comfortably the largest club in the UK. Answers to lots of the questions on this thread here, for those who haven't already seen it: https://www.dolphinsnrl.com.au/credentials/

Their proposal is hilarious.


“Like the Firehawk, we are a unique Australian brand,” Brisbane Tigers CEO Brian Torpy.


Ask the Queensland Firebirds. Who are suing them for their very very familiar brand.

Shame really because the location of the tigers is an advantage over the dolphins even though the dolphins are probably more financially secure and asset rich.

All three bidders seem to have flaws. Firehawks branding is pretty weak, but they have some knowledgable people involved. Redcliffe has the finances but is likely to alienate fans of other Brisbane clubs, feels out on a limb geographically, and the decision to play games centrally is odd given their base. Jets comes across as an unlikely, and somewhat desperate, merger of two bids that were going nowhere. None of them really stand out.

Is it a bit late in the game for the firehawks to change their name?

Didn't they change it already, or am I thinking of something else?

I'm not a fan of the name but the contrast between these guys and Leigh should be an eye opener.

What’s Leigh got to do with anything?

That could have been the tagline for their bid.

How many pages in the bid document?

I was born to run a club like this. Number 1, I do not spook easily, and those who think I do, are wasting their time, with their surprise attacks.

What a wet press conference that was. My days Brian, reading your entire script from a PowerPoint display in front of you, stumbling over your words. That was terrible. All of it.

“We are here today to announce our intention to bid and we are not going to share any details about our bid other than we want to be a brand for all of Australia, based in Brisbane”. 

12 minutes I will never get back that made me a little more stupid than I already am.

I don’t think the dolphins have anything to worry about 😂

Lots of unanswered questions for me with the dolphins bid like will they incorporate Brisbane into their name? Will they play out of suncorp stadium or upgrade their current 10k capacity stadium? Do they have a rich backer/consortium willing to pump money in on a yearly basis?

They will play the majority of their home games at suncorp yes, some will be held at their own stadium. This club doesn't need a rich backer, it's wealthy as an entity anyway.

Do they actually own the stadium like Cronulla do?

They own Dolphins Stadium and something like 11 hectares around it. They own a shopping centre and have a leagues club with 40k members as well as gyms and swimming pools and other facilities.

Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.
