Yep, I had exactly the same reaction - and again with no direct link to Fitzroy. Yet I think that history makes us something incredibly special that just wouldn't exist had we remained the Bears - success or otherwise.I only came to AFL a few years after the merger and watching that footage of the last year... I was almost in tears despite having no Fitzroy link, thinking how brutal it would be to lose the Lions now.
While I think there are times on here the bitterness needs to be tempered a little - this was after all no one here's doing, knowing the passion behind those posts and the obvious hurt some still harbour makes me understand just how gut wrenching losing Fitzroy was.
It's just so unfathomable to me to not have that Fitzroy history as part of our story. I hope that is some sort of solace to those so hurt.
