    In breaking news, the new NRL commission is set to have new powers to change the names of team mascot names in order to conform to Truth in Advertising guidelines.

    From 2013, the Melbourne side will most likely be known as the Melbourne Cheetahs. Although Gerbils is in strong consideration.

    Canterbury-Bankstown will not be overhauled entirely as they are widely known as 'dogs' keeping in line with the guidelines. However, the official name, The Canterbury Bulldogs, will be changed to the Bankstown Bitches.

    This also confirms to the clubs Treatment of Woman policy.

    For other clubs we might see the Fat Eels and The Gold Coast Bankrupts.

    In further sweeping powers even the regional name might be changed, with the Dodge City Broncos favoured although there is no evidence of the 'bronco' in the Australian Language. It's a term used exclusively in the United States and northern Mexico.

    The commission is open for public comment and suggestions.

    They also have the power to not offer license renewals to any club as well

    Maybe they can change the South Sydney mascot into one that is a bit more scary than a Rabbit. The South Sydney Butterflies maybe?

    That's no ordinary rabbit, that's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!
    Look, that rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!

    ...And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O LORD, bless this Thy hand grenade that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy."
