People saying we should have gone on to win have no clue. They were last years premiers, we only avoided finishing last because of Essendope. Given how demoralised and shattered we were after Leppa was sacked only six months back - Fagan has done outstanding work to get us back to this level so quickly. Hugely exciting times ahead for the first time in ages
today at 08:35
Fagan cant wave a magic wand and win games for us. He has made massive inroads in such a short time, its remarkable really. Compare the way the side plays now with last year and you cant be disappointed. Wins are irrelevant at this stage

We did good, and we did BAD, the bad outweighed the good in the end. I won't accept an honourable loss no matter what the spin is. Keep at it , but grab the bull by the horns and don't let the mongrel go no matter who they are.

Well done zorko! I really want to say congrats to all you boys! That was a well fought out! You had me on the edge of my seat for almost all of the game! Keep it up! It will translate into wins given more time!

Well done! But you shouldn't have asked for the handball.

Are we bidding on a "full" jumper, or just a half of a jumper?
I figured we bid for jumpers that were played in ... and we only came to play the first 2 quarters !
today at 06:32
What half do you want TJ i will only give 50c for the the last two quarters...why do the Lions keep on with this rubbish do these girls in marketing think we are all morons.

Tell you one thing Shacky is class his disposal is clean and efficient and he will start cluncking thos grabs. With games under his belt he will get better and better. Andrews is a star Hipwood will be an ace as will Berry McCluggan. If we can keep these kids we can build a team aroind them.
yesterday at 10:37
boys played very well. A few more years into the younger players and we will be a solid outfit. Very hard to go past Mcstay. He was pivotal in the back line yesterday.

This is wrong. Lions was starting to show signs of a great family club. Seen as a money grabbing exercise. This is something all kids would love to do, not just the ones with rich parents/carers. To make it fair let all kids have their name entered and have a draw. This is so wrong for all kids and would not like to see the lions attempt this again.
yesterday at 11:21
DISGUSTING!!!!! I can't believe the lions have scooped so low not happy at all, I will go and continue supporting the women's team at least that's free entry and I get to see lions win majority of their games.

Completely stinks that this is really only available to rich kids

I find we often overkill with handballs, Beams and Zork can't always be the one to make that best decision , the younger crew like Mayes have gotta be aware that their decisions count too. He ( Sam) is showing an improvement, just gotta stop dying off late . Cardio, Cardio, Cardio!
yesterday at 00:06
Getting very sick of being proud of the boys and how the stats are great, only lost two quarters etc.Also how good our young players will be when they have another couple of years under their belts. The supporters have heard these same excuses for ten years and it's getting boring. If you stay down the bottom these players will leave for better clubs as some have done. We need to recruit good experienced players if they will come here.
yesterday at 01:49
Performance is consistent with any young developing side. Their ball movement was electric in the second quarter at times. Those lapses will become less and less. I'm happy to wait the wait. Exciting times ahead. Would much rather be in the Lions position than several other mid range sides who will struggle with limited youth and draft picks.

Positive signs. The year before the bulldogs really got going there VFL team were outstanding and the AFL team were still down the bottom. Kids like Jason Johanissen, Lin Jong, Mitch Wallis etc were in that team and now they are premiers. I like what I see. Keep the faith.
04/22/2017 at 20:45
Just makes you understand how wide the gap is between the NEAFL & the AFL ... makes it really hard for the development coaches when the gap is so wide ....

Great to see Marco back on the park. These boys are playing good footy and are getting reward for effort. Go Lions!

Fagan has made massive inroads into this young team allready. Last couple of years we were getting beaten and not showing allot of effort. This year the results haven't gone our way but the endevour is there. Fagan will make our club successful, lets give it time.
04/22/2017 at 10:19
Chris fagan is the best thing that has happened to the lions in a long time! So much positive to take out of the season so far. Finally excited about what's coming for the club 🦁🦁
04/22/2017 at 09:39
Six nineteen year olds in the team. Legs just couldn't go the whole distance
Looking forward to seeing what they'll be able to do by seasons end

A second-half comeback by the Dogs saw the Lions go down, but not without experience and lessons to take from it.

The future is there to watch, the amount of kids out there was great to see! Berry, cox, handbags, hipwood schache mcstay, Robertson, all guys at less than 50 games, 2-3 years we are gonna run all over teams. Sucks to lose but it was the premiers and we were always gonna run out of puff playing the kids. Go lions! 🦁
04/22/2017 at 09:25
Very proud of the lads, we were always gonna run out of legs. We are young. Upset we lost but we learnt a lot today as a team. Imagine in 1 or 2 years when we can sustain that for 4 quarters. We will be a force again. I can see it now.
04/22/2017 at 22:06
Best effort from the lads I have seen in along time win loose or draw! Got some great kids to go with an excellent coach! Hip wood is gunna be something special, man that kid can play!

Geez guys honestly? I know we always drop away towards the end of the game, but far out we are the youngest team in the competition facing the premiers! That first half was unreal! I started watching the game thinking "ok if the margin is more than 40 pts by half time I'm gonna stop watching".
Great signs from Hipwood and McCluggage. The 4 quarters will some day and we will pull off an upset. We all know Brisbane needs to work on that, and you can't expect them to perfect it in 7 days or less.
04/22/2017 at 06:57
Was at the game. There was a lot to like about our boys today, we matched it with the premiers for three quarters before the Doggies dug deep to give their captain the win. The future looks bright as Eric and the other youngsters showed today. I'm more convinced than ever that exciting times are ahead for our club! Go Lions!!!
04/22/2017 at 06:43
Very deflating seeing them fade away like that. I get their young etc. but that 2nd Qtr was fantastic. I call it the halftime momentum killer cos it seems to happen to us a fair bit.
Definitely like what I see this season compared to others.

Another exercise in frustration 😡. I love the lions but I'm over them not putting in 4 quarters of football. I can't remember the last time they played four quarters in the one game.
04/22/2017 at 05:54
Watching this game live lets you see lots of things, how good our forwards will be with a bit of size added on, how good our mid field can be. However, will will continue to loose game if no one teaches out backline how to play defensive football, how to stick to their man, how to spoil a ball. C'mon Lions, bring this home...🦁🦁🦁. How the hell Nick Robertson keeps his position in this side is an absolute joke...
04/22/2017 at 05:43
Brilliant pressure and use ball in first half! Back to normal in third quarter. Stupid mistakes and left the game plan in the room.

I was at the game yesterday was a bit disappointed there was no Anzac remembrance why but there was plenty of Robert or bob remembrance through the match which he totally deserves . But I was looking forward to show my pride as an Australian for all those who have given there life's for us . Loyal lions supporter 🦁🦁🦁🦁

Good luck boys go out and show the Lion spirit we are supporting you at Etihad today. Go Lions. Great to see the Servicemen at the game hopefully the AFL will do the right thing and play The Last Post for the men and women that fought for us and also the ones that still are.

All we ask for Lions is a solid 4 quarter effort and do the basics, stick on your man, kick the ball long, don't handball to a player about to be tackled, and fight for every ball. Go Lions 🦁

Surprisingly, we have the upper hand against these guys! We may be a chance tonight. I think Freo, and us to a lesser extent, are the Bulldogs' bogey teams.
