It is interesting that the AFL scheduled the Lions on the same night as the Brisbane Derby.

i know it is only early but 2nd team has been well overdue.. and it is now highlighting
the extra presence a another brisbane team is doing for the game

the media interest and interest in the game especially in QLD has lifted to another level.

QLD will have another team within 5 years. (lock it in)

2 gorillas in the room each year in the derbies between these 2 clubs , everything else in Brisb will be forgotten about.
30K fans on average to games in Brisbane each week.
over 50K members between the 2 clubs at the moment, & probably over 60K by seasons end.
media space was already dominated by the Broncos & RL in Brisb, but the Dolphins & wayne bennett are going to soak up a huge amount of it too..

any fumblers still want to talk down the impact of the Dolphins on their silly little sport in QLD ? :twisted:

That have started very, very well…but so did the bears….without the following.
There are lies, damn lies and then there are ratings.

Agree, as I have posted before, I was a bit surprised that they did not admit 2 Brissy sides at once if the applications were so strong.
Will not be too long.

I cant believe the AFL decided to put the Lions Melbourne game on the same night as first Rugby League derby.

I am sure they are regretting it now & I am not looking forward to trying a getting an Uber to the Gabba Friday night. It is going to be a long wait as I don't think Brisbane as a city can handle 2 big crowds at the same time.

Time will tell I guess.

Hi Pete

do you think the Lion's crowd would be impacted by the Broncos and Dolphins game? I would think it would be as a lot of people in general are not as parochial as maybe the members here and can follow and appreciate both sports - with AFL being the secondary one naturally in Brisbane. so if choosing, I'd think that Broncos game would be the choice? Be interesting if Lion's draw a decent crowd though - doubt it though - particularly as you said - traffic would also be a nightmare putting many fairweather supporters off.

The broncos game will obviously be a sellout considering both clubs are 3-0 & its the first derby.

It will hurt the lions crowd a bit I think. They would normally get about 30,000 for this fixture but I think they will get around 27-28,000 because the big Rugby League game is on.

Personally, I think the closest like-for-like scenario across the codes to compare the Dolphins to would be Port Adelaide. An expansion team playing second fiddle/little brother to the main City license in a state that loves their respective sport. Both have their state league roots and have had to differentiate their brand to a degree with Port dropping the Magpies moniker and the Dolphins dropping Redcliffe. As well as both teams having successful launches in their national comp careers.

For reference, Port actually won their first SA showdown against big brother and ended up missing finals only on percentage. I think a second Brisbane League team was always a no-brainer for the NRL but the Broncos' monopoly wouldn't allow it for decades. Being a Lions and Cowboys fan I despise the Broncs doubly, so hopefully, the Phins get up and shut some of my Broncos fans up for a bit. I'll be catching the Derby on a Kayo mini the next morning.

I guess the Dolphins are like Port Adelaide & Fremantle in the West. I never thought of it like that.

Though in saying that, if they get half as popular as Port & Fremantle I will be very impressed.
