Why hasn't the NRL been pushing for another franchise in Brisbane?

Why has this News-owned club been allowed to hold a monopoly advantage in Brisbane for so long when it's so obvious our game needs another team in this city? Sydney's population is approximately double the size of Brisbane. But Sydney accommodates nine NRL teams; Brisbane only has one.

Rugby league on free-to-air television rates higher per capita in Brisbane than in any other city in the country. How much more valuable would our TV rights be if we had another team playing out of Suncorp Stadium so Brisbane hosted an NRL match every weekend?

The Broncos enjoy a huge advantage over other NRL clubs on the score of attendances, corporate support, revenue, sponsorships and recruitment. Being the only team in Brisbane means they are regulars on free-to-air TV coverage which adds tremendous value to the sponsorship packages. The number of third-party deals they can offer their players is staggering when compared to what other NRL clubs can arrange.

These benefits, which come as a result of their monopoly status in such a large market, allows the Brisbane Broncos to recruit and retain extra numbers of representative class players, stockpile the best of junior talent and spend millions more on their coaching, staffing and football programs than any club in the league.

Surely it is time for a second team in Brisbane. It would sure add value to our next broadcast rights deal. If the NRL won't put another team in Brisbane and is willing to allow the News-owned club to continue to flourish in its monopoly position, then why doesn't the NRL charge the Broncos an "exclusivity fee" of, say, $4 million per season which can be distributed among the battling clubs?

Perhaps Gallop could explain to us why he has not pursued such a project. Why has the News-owned Broncos been allowed such a free run with this monopoly situation?

You know, the truth is, even if Gallop was motivated to have a second team in Brisbane, the NRL doesn't have the expertise or the money to establish a new business in that or any other area.

Look at the way the AFL plans and attacks its expansion programs. It is professional, well organised and aggressive.

The NRL has no strategy. It sits back and waits for people to apply and hopes those pursuing a new franchise have the energy and money to do all the work.

Brisbane obviously has the monopoly when comparing it to the sydney based teams so is it time for another club in SE QLD?

No, for a very good reason though. We currently have 3 QLD teams, with QLD Cup being feeder teams for every single NSW club.

Why not expand to the Central Coast, or to Central Queensland ?? Why cramp Brisbane with another team ??

This wouldn't make the competition better, it would thin out the playing rosters even more than ever

Rockhampton or Gosford should get a team before another Brisbane team is brought into the comp

Have a look at the playing talent in every team now. Can we really afford to stretch that even further ???

I heard that the Titans were getting handouts from the NRL. True?
If that is true, why they would think about adding another team in the area I don't know.

Read in rugby league week that Central Queensland Rugby League are looking for a team in 2013/2014, aiming for players like Matt Scott, Dave Taylor, Jharal Yow Yeh, Josh Hoffman and Gordon Tallis for coach as they hail from central qld. With Matt Scott as the ideal captain?

Thoughts?

I would rather see a team based in central QLD coast. A SE QLD team would disrupt Broncos in terms of competing for sponsorship deals. Broncos thrive in their location.

I'm confident Central Coast Qld and Brisbane will be able to co-exist. Broncos has a lot of young talent in the toyota cup, the problem is we can't keep them all. "It would thin out the playing rosters even more than ever" I totally disagree

He'll be going for the Titans soon.. Treacherous snake he is.. Evil or Very Mad If Australia was ever invaded and everyone had to fight the war, he, and people like him would be the first I'd shoot.. They'd switch sides as soon as it got bad.. People like that can't be trusted... EVER..

Mate, the only war I'll be in, if there was a war between NSW and QLD. I'll be QLD's General..I'd never switch. I'd be like Tom Cruise in the Last Samurai movie where it was just him surrounded by all the Samurai's fighting like a tiger and not giving up. Thats equivalent to me doing the same if I was surrounded by NSwelsh men in a pub brawl.

Nah, The aim is to expand the game. Another SE QLD team isnt going to bring anymore fans.

Gosford, Yea.
Perth, Yea.
Central QLD, Yea.
Papua New Guinea... If it does happen, its still many many years away

I agree, SE QLD team should wait their turn. Perth should be in front of that line. If there was a PNG team, they should be based in Townsville rather then Port Moresby (aka murder capital of the world). Plus there's a lot of New Guinean people living in NQ.

Agreed witht he above posts. But even then if the NRL is looking to have 18 sides in the comp by 2013 then they'll have some tough decisions to make

Central Coast Bears would be leading from the front at the moment, theyve got the stadium, support and have juniors coming through

Another SE QLD based side would have a good fan base, anyone know how the Ipswich Jets bid is coming through?

Perth would be great for the NRL in terms of 'true expantion'

Not to mention Adelaide and Wellington who both have some sort of credible claims for an expansion spot.
