- AFL Club
This comes with success though - Lions are on an upward curve, circa 2003. They drop off again, and it will vanish. Queensland was ever thus
Been here 12 years now, footy has grown massively in that time here at grassroots (especially women and juniors) and just in general interest, even prior to the recent Lions resurgence. There are also a lot of people here who don't follow the Lions. A lot of expats or people who have chosen to follow teams other than the Lions, VFL was beamed live into QLD in the 70s & 80s I've been told. Quite common among my social group. No doubt there will be ebbs and flows as the Lions are good and bad, but footy is very healthy here.
