    Good initiative and good luck. I will be a NSW country supporter - but I like your ideas. Especially the name the Brisbane "Knuckles".:cool: (Any chance he can step up to coach them?)

    What's wrong wth just leaving it as Brisbane city ffs. Being the city team playing out of ballymore is a strong identity in itself, no need for some daft name or animal to be latched on straight away.

    The Brisbane Gamblers. A play on Bris-Vegas. Could attract some Casino sponsorship. Are they allowed to sponsor sports teams or are they like the Tobacco companies? Could also be a dig at JO'N and whatever casino mob he is with.

    Alternately The Brisbane Nobodies. What was the Qld tourism campaign, QLD - "Beautiful one day, Perfect the next".

    Call it "Brisbane" but get rid of the "City"—IMO. It's got a soccer connotation (I like soccer but it's just not rugby).

    There is a history of city-country games in rugby, and in rleague, for that matter, but IIRC the city team was known as Brisbane.

    Maybe you have a point there, but these things tend to be seen as a void to be filled.

    I don't mind a nickname/animal/mascot if it's a good one—with some link with the place and perhaps even keeps a bit of the history of the game in the region, in cases where there is some.

    If sourced from the people who support the team then the results can be good—the recently formed Western Sydney Wanderers FC is an example of soccer getting it right. The fans had input to the colours and name, and so on.

    Brisbane City Cats. Get council sponsorship and promote the weak public transport.

    If Country is a real country side and not just GC/Bond uni I will support both. If it is GC then it will be City for me.
