Neale - you say 'Whether Bristol are called Bears, Beavers or Browns, it will all boil down to results. If they're successful, people will come.' - if success (or not) has nothing to do with the name then why put everyone through this? I don't think it will bring success on the pitch and I don't think it will bring in money either so ........

Presumably it has brought a load of money in ..... from SL to pay for the re-brand and the PR which will go with it. We will find out soon enough whether this will result in more bums on seats next season or not.

Seems to me there are 2 ways people are able to fund top level sport: find a billionaire or increase revenue by building a brand. Seems like our billionaire is saying we can have his money for a bit longer but we are going to need to build a brand which can get crowds of 20K plus and generate some income. You may not like the brand he's come up with but think its much harder to argue with the principle.
