Evil is afoot here people. The Brisbane consortium that is bidding for an additional NRL club licence has unveiled the proposed name........ The Brisbane Bombers!!! They will be navy and orange.
Apparently Essendon have started looking into legal action to block the move.
They came up with the name after a number of perople were surveyed and responded positively to the name "Bombers". Wow - who would have thought that there would have been positive recognition associated with the name of an existing national football team when compared to other names?? They are just trying to glom onto success by association.
Hopefully sanity will prevail. A State Brand shouldn't take precedence over a National Brand.
What do other people think? Is it a good name, bad name, good for the NRL, bad for the the AFL?
