NRL's 17th Team - The (Redcliffe) dolphins

First Grader
Manly for example represents about 25 suburbs and increasingly the whole north shore of Sydney.

In this new case the league want dolphins to be moreton bay or river city or some crap.

Do they think people from belrose or narrabeen don’t want to support manly because their junior clubs are rivals?
About 25 suburbs on the Northern Beaches? And the rest.

Let’s go:
Palm Beach
Whale Beach
Careel Bay
North Avalon
Avalon Beach
Clareville
Taylor’s Point
Bilgola Beach
Bilgola Plateau
Newport Beach
Mona Vale
Bayview (I left out Bayview Heights - just for ****s and giggles)
Church Point
Scotland Island
Lovett Bay
Elvina Bay
Ingleside
Terrey Hills
Duffy’s Forest
Cottage Point
Warriewood
Warriewood Valley
North Narrabeen
Elanora
Elanora Heights

That’s 25 and I haven’t even crossed Narrabeen Lakes yet.

Next time, Narrabeen, Oxford Falls and beyond…

I doubt the name Redcliffe will be used , that’s just basically one suburb , the Moreton Bay Dolphins is a possibility but I’d say they’ll use something trying to encompass the whole of “ North Brisbane “ ( which really isn’t a place as such but you get the idea ).

And whilst I think we’ll get an 18th side in a few years anyway I actually don’t think an extra bye is a bad thing.

26 rounds , 24 games I don’t mind it.

Manly, Penrith, Cronulla, Parramatta all just one suburb....

Different times mate , look at how the AFL made “ Greater Western Sydney “.

They’ll come up with a name to encompass the area as that’s “ hip “.
The Hip Replacement Dolphins.....hang on dolphins don't have hips............................oh yes they do...
"Both whales and dolphins have pelvic (hip) bones, evolutionary remnants from when their ancestors walked on land more than 40 million years ago."

Meet Pakicetus, a goat-sized, four-legged creature that scientists recognise as one of the first cetaceans (the group of marine animals that includes dolphins and whales).

How
Pakicetus' descendants evolved into whales is one of the most intriguing evolutionary journeys known to science.

Manly is probably the smallest suburb on the northern beaches / north shore - yet has a team named after it!

Souths should be called Zetland. Easts to be Coogee etc.

But GWS were a club created from nothing.
This is renaming a club with a strong brand and history of the back of some misguided marketing exec

(I'm in marketing btw)

And I dont get the other QLD cup fans wont support them argument as changing their name to Moreton Bay Dophins doesnt change the fact that it is the Redcliffe Dolphins Club just as the Bulldogs one changing their name to the Sydney Buldogs didnt make them a new club

Very informative Bozo. The only problem I see with your team and salaries is that it only leaves $1.15-M to secure the remaining 13 players (@ a low $88.000 each) for a top 30 squad.

Remember the Sydney Tigers, Sydney Roosters and Sydney Bulldogs? What a crock.

I guess Wayne can re-ignite Corey Allan as Barrett had made him into a plodder.

Of course we were never just Manly, we are the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles (or Manly-Warringah DRLFC (with a hyphen) :)
Warringah as an area doesn't even exist any more, is that right? Or maybe just as an electorate.
