    Maroon is not a primary colour, and since Manly were first to use it, we should get exclusive rights.

    Queensland, Broncos and Melbourne should be forced to wear a colour other than Maroon.

    Discuss.

    You would obviously have to look at when the Manly District Rugby League started and when QRL did as well.
    You can thank Singo for the Maroon in the broncos jerseys, they were going to play in Brisbane City's colour's which are blue and gold. Singo told them you'd be mad not to have maroon in the colour's.
    Melbourne how you got maroon from purple is beyond me. They chose purple to get as close to the Victorian colour's as possible : Navy Blue.

    I love how the English teams refer to their colours i.e
    Leeds - here would be Blue and Yellow or Gold, there its blue and amber
    Bradford - Red, Black and Yellow = Red Black and Amber
    Huddersfield - Maroon and Gold(yellow) = Claret and Gold

    According to wiki QLD rugby league team have been wearing Maroon since 1908. Even before rugby split into two separate codes they were wearing maroon jerseys apparently.

    I agree about the Broncos though, they should be forced to permanently wear their terrible banana yellow away strip.[hr]
    Again according to wiki Manly Warringah Junior Rugby Football League was founded in 1932 & played in the President's Cup competition. The colours maroon & white were adopted from Freshwater Surf Lifesaving club.

    My old high school official colours are: Bismark, Coral and Gold.
    Roughly translated are maroon, pink and yellow.
    Any guesses which school?

    Last year for Game III, my family and I headed to QLD and were walking down Caxton St; my bandwagon QLD supporting brother (we were both born and raised in Western Sydney) was wearing his Manly jersey and a drunk guy shouted out at us, "HEY MATE. THAT'S THE WRONG MAROON." I think we laughed for a good 5 minutes lol.
