    Justin Leppitsch quoted "Brisbane are a circus". That's what you want to hear from a three time premiership player. Ungrateful prick

    What was the context of the comment (didn't hear it so wondering) - ie what was the question or comment that spawned that as a reply?

    How good is the feeling from what you experienced last year? "Brisbane are a circus"

    I though he said that Richmond are a circus, as in that the fans create a carnival atmosphere. I think he chose the wrong word because he was caught off guard by the BT approach. I thought he was respectful and did not actually comment about the Lions, just Richmond.

    My Dad just rang me from Vic to tell me that as well. Said "Brisbane are a Circus"
    Really very disappointing thing to say.
    I mean if that was the case, he was the ringmaster!!
    Really surprised by that to be honest!!!

    The quote has been taken completely and utterly out of context.

    Disappointing people have jumped on this hardcore. The fact media pages on fb even did so quoting him saying something he didn't say.

    BT: "...and how do you compare this, you know, to where you were in terms of Brisbane and you know the Tiger army behind you?"
    JL: "Oh yeah well Brisbane's a bit of a circus isn't it as a footy club, you know it, um and it's an exciting time for our fans because it's been a long time since we've had any success, so ah it's good..."
