Brisbane Bombers Bbcrop-preview

Brisbane Bombers set to take flight
By Nathan Ryan
13 July 2011 03:01PM EST

TAKE a look at the logo for the Brisbane team bidding to enter the NRL as early as 2013.

The Brisbane Bombers is the name expected to be unveiled tomorrow and sportsnewsfirst.com.au can exclusively reveal the logo.

The emblem sports a bomber pilot with silver wings on both sides with matching blue stars and uses a navy blue and orange/gold colour scheme.

It was lodged with Australia's trademarking authorities last week.

The Brisbane bid team have their sights set on ARU star Quade Cooper and NZRU and former Bulldog Sonny-Bill Williams as their prime targets for the expansion.

They also have also reportedly secured 18 players with a letter of intent to join the side along with earmarking top talent including Petero Civoniceva who will be 37 as targets should the bid be accepted for 2013.

Already the club has announced Centrebet, Bundaberg, Canterbury clothing and Austereo radio brand B105.

On the bid’s website battleforbrisbane.com.au the consortium has listed a number of potential names, with the Bombers listed a long side the Barracudas, Bayliners, Bobcats, Braves and Heat.

With one of the first tasks for the incoming Independent Commission exploring expansion, Craig Davison who has been the bid’s official spokesperson will launch the teams name on Thursday.

On their website, the group have outlined the scope and direction of the bid and the impact a second Brisbane team will have in the Rugby League community from grassroots through to the corporate sector.

“We’re incredibly confident in the product we are creating and will continue to develop until such time the Independent Commission calls for bid tenders,” Davison said in a statement on the website.

“We have a number of private investors on board and now that we’ve declared our hand, we’ll have plenty more coming on board over the coming weeks and months.”

The consortium may face a legal battle with AFL club Essendon, who are the Bombers should the name be unveiled tomorrow which appears very likely after the Brisbane Bombers Rugby League Football Club Pty Ltd was registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission on February 25 and the business name "Brisbane Bombers" was registered with ASIC on July 5.

Surely they could have come up with a better name and logo. Bombers, how very GayFL of them.

Yeah that is pretty shit tbh and the logo looks bad.

Don't mind Brisbane Heat but that's the new name of the T20 Brisbane team.

Barracudas, Bayliners, Bobcats, Braves and Heat.

All them are horrible names.

Braves remind me of Baseball and Bayliners remind me of Fag Central San Francisco and I think it was on Baseketball one of the teams haha

Essendon is focusing on regaining their feet as a big and dominant club after some leaner years, so I think we will be respectful about this by letting them share the name, or we will sue the absolute pants off them. Hoping it's the latter, that logo and those colours are an eyesore.

Terrible idea in my opinion. Surely other areas should become a team before a second Brisbane team?

Perth should be number 1 on the list, then either Central Queensland or Central Coast, then the Bombers

Yeah, but I think the reason it is gaining headlines is because of the name. If it were some totally different name I don't think it would be talked about as much as it is now.

Yeah true, it'd be big news in the League world and thats about it. My comment was in response to all stars "They shouldve brought back the Reds". Well they probably will

Not sure how they would get fans with the majority in Brisbane already supporting the Broncos, and surely the rest either go for Cowboys/Titans or another club.

After playing in Perth the last couple of seasons I can safely say that there certainly is a market over there, especially with all the ex-pat east coasters. They'd get as many to games as average numbers over here I'd say. http://www.warzone.net.au/ Good luck to them.

As for the Bombers, I think QLD should def get another team... whether it be in Brizzy or Central I can't say. But I would've gone for the great Baboon as a mascot!

Anyone see on the footy show how they have got letters of interest from a bunch of players? Anyone know/heard of any of those players? Would be good to see who there targeting.

They are targeting Cooper Cronk but he hasn't signed a letter of interest yet. That's all I know

SBW, Cooper, Folau etc are a few other names they've apparently targeted... good luck trying to sign any of them though.
