    Yeah, not going to happen.

    I had a discussion with a lawyer about this whole issue, and apparently the NRL owns the team names of most the teams and any kind of boycot or action like this can lead to the NRL taking the sponsorship moneys from teams, even from sponsors that have signed with the team exclusively. Don't know if its true, but I would guess the CEOs would be very careful about doing anything at all.
