I know we have some mad statisticians and historians in here, has it happened in recent times where a team has had to defeat the reigning premiers, the premiers for the 2 years before, and the current minor premiers just to reach the Granny?

Hird to be Fagans successor and introduce a high intensity medical regime that will take us to the top.
It makes sense.

Ahead of his time at the Bombers.

No Dank and we can make it work.

I haven't heard the word "flaming" used in an internet context since about 2002.

Back in the days when we surfed the "information superhighway" on our 56kbps modems.

/me slaps Martinson around the head with a large trout
I know.

What's the word then ? You're a teacher.

Don't belittle me ,educate me.

Na.

You're the Skipper.

Everyone looks to you.

You nominate and you can take unequivocal support to the bank.
You would get change from the bank with your support cobber.

Besides, done my time in playing, coaching and administration. Time for new blood as you wisely say...... so come on....HAVE A CRACK BIG BOY.

I think the team always needs to evolve at times in each season and in each year. When that time is should be determined by many situations & circmstances that is deemed by coach's, players & people high up in the administration of the club. We as supporters always have hindsight that our club doesn't and with that comes the "told you so" smart cookies that knew it before Fagan or anyone else thought of it. Bahahahaha.
I have said all along, The Brisbane Lions are extremely lucky to have Fagan, Daly, Swan & Wellington as the people who represent the club we all love. I also have said that more gratitude & respect should be given to these guys and sometimes it's easy to forget the joy & excitement these guys (along with the players) have brought us. They have changed the club in a significantly positive way and we should all recognize that.

Go Lions.
Agree re Fagan and his team’s overall impact. We were in a shocking position as a club. I am a mere supporter. I played ammo football. They turned around a club and playing list. They also created a culture where we almost never lose players. Stopped getting bad injuries. Had players wanting to come. Incredible effort. I’ve spoken with Fagan twice and was almost as positive with him as he is with everyone!

But i was being very particular about that one point - how much our midfield had slipped, the fact it took so long to pull the trigger on Lyons. You mentioned hindsight - in this case those of us wanting change were saying it for many weeks. It wasn’t hindsight. It just seems bizarre we went for so long with the set-up that wasn’t working. Particularly if OP had set in. Especially considering how well run we are normally. Strong case to say it cost us top 4.

Anyway i enjoy your contributions, particularly as an insider of the club. Hope they are all primed to do us proud again Friday. Last Friday was spine-tingling stuff. My two sisters took their kids who are now fans for life. I have been at them for years buying memberships trying to bribe them… now they are on board!

Just watched the Jeremy Cameron segment on AFL360. Damn he’s good. Do we play Starcevich on him when up the ground and Andrews when deeper? Can’t have Harris chasing him all day long - too slow and will get tired easily.
