Announced as future name on BBC (with references to YC having changed name four times). Supporters club a bit grumpy over lack of consultation.

Not sure how that will go down. Name changes are always a complicated affair!

We were never consulted about any of the name changes. Leeds Tykes was good, dropping the Tykes brand to Carnegie was wrong in so many ways (The Carnegie Challenger springs to mind!!) and then the change to Yorkshire Carnegie isolated an awful lot of supporters and made enemies of our local rivals. Bristol Bears has a ring to it and as they were once known as the Bristol Shoguns it does sound okay. Maybe they have a brewery sponsorship deal "Follow the Bear!"

Not a brewery exactly ... Just a pub

If you want a Sugar Daddy and the possible success it may bring then you have to sell your soul, I am afraid.

The whole Bristol Sport Franchise is the brain child of a Bristol City Fan.

Feel for the Bristol Fans somewhat and the Gloucester fans should they lose their crest.

It's not big and it's not clever. Couldn't resist though.
