Hi Lions_Insider ,

Further to discussions in the review thread, do the Lions as a club track how much mainstream media the club gets on a weekly basis, as well as time on shows like 360 and The Bounce?

Further to that, how does a club such as Brisbane go about getting more time and exposure on said shows? Is there a regulated amount we should be getting?

I was of the opinion once we started winning we'd get more media time, but we're in the top 8 six rounds in and the lack of discussion around our team outside of a few passing comments is disappointing.

No doubt it must be hard for you guys in the media team and want to say again how great a job you guys do for the fans with things like the Podcast and Lions.com media.
despite being a tiges supporter I have a lot of interest in how the lions are fairing as they are my second team, I am a Brissy boy and all my relos in Brissy are die hard lions fanatics...I have to say that they get a disappointingly low amount of air time or credit especially on the "expert" footy shows....

Hey LI. Appreciate your input on our board.

Had a question about the weekly Coaches Wrap videos. A few years back, they were the best of the club's videos, and the first I watched every week. They'd take you through pieces of vision and explain specific plays, targets, etc. Really insightful stuff. Not to be too critical, but nowadays, they're just a bog standard press conference, where you could put any half-informed fan up and get the same answers. This week, questions were things like "how important is the midfield?" and "is Harris Andrews an important player?".

Is there a chance that the club could revert back? I understand that it could've been too time intensive, or could've been at risk of giving away info/strategies, and if so, fair enough. Keen to hear the club's view.

I think this has been answered before. Think they felt that they were giving too much info away so it stopped.

That is essentially the reason, but we can always review that now it's been a season or two.
Cheers. If that's the case, it's completely fair enough. I just thought I'd check - I haven't watched them in a while, and watched this week's, and was really very bored, so went back to see if last week's was the same. Honestly, I don't think I got even one bit of information out of either of them.

It's a fine line between keeping the supporters informed and giving away too much to the opposition. Same reason why I think a lot of the interviews in the middle of the games are complete waffle - as if anyones going to give juicy information away when you can safely bet the live footage is being monitored for it.
