Secondly, about effing time The Lions got something like this together! FTA tv in Brisbane advertising our great club is something that should have been done yonks ago, although if I'm remembering right, wasn't there a Lions segment on tv years ago?
Different markets and level of interest I know, but over in WA, they've had a show called the Western Front for almost 20 years that is just about the WA teams. I think there is something similar to the Western Front in SA too, but this is a great initiative by the Lions.

There definitely used to be a QLD footy show on 7 covering us and the suns, and I think there was something when we were actually good. From memory it would air on 7mate just before game coverage started.

QLD Rules was on 10 in the early - mid 2000's hosted by Aker and someone else. Bill McDonald?

Come on, this is so incredibly picky. The timing of recording this footage was most likely in the same week that the new sponsor was announced so we most likely did not have any alternative logos to 'iron on' (never mind the two logos are different dimensions), and we are in a unique situation of having a second jumper available that allows us to not show the defunct major sponsor. What would you do from a marketing perspective?

It's the same team, same players, and we wear the Fitzroy red jumper for half our games anyway, so the odds of seeing more red jumper footage on the show is quite high. Let's move on and support the club.

Lions_Insider well done on the show, I look forward to tuning in. I only hope it's broadcast down Gold Coast way too... because... rivalry and stuff. ;)

Don't get your panties in a bunch, I just happen to prefer the Home jumper.

Hey LI - something I have always been curious about: When we play night games at the Gabba, the ball is often very slippery because of the Brisbane humidity - at times it looks like a cake of wet soap. My question is this - do we ever train in these conditions, i.e. under lights at the Gabba to acclimatise to the evening dew/humidity. I realise that we have just secured access to the Gabba for training but I was more thinking about during the season from now on?

Reply to my own post - Clugga in his Lions presser today mentioned that the Lions have some training sessions at night during the pre-season - great to hear!

It was Chris Fagan who implemented this in his first year at the club.
There were a few who weren’t particularly happy about the idea but have grown to enjoy it.
Because it is out of the full heat of the day.

All off-season we trained Wednesday nights from 4pm. Very similar to the conditions on Saturday.

I find it odd that players would be unhappy about it. Surely in the quest to be the best getting practice under game conditions would be high on the list of wants. Especially when it would be a clear advantage over the visiting teams for a lot of humid day, evening and night games during the season.

It is Human nature for some to be uncertain of a change in routine.
