I am writing today because around four years ago the Brisbane Lions Board made a huge decision, a decision that has proven to be very devisive! This decision was the one which resulted in the current “Lion” being forced on us, the members, and also our beautiful jumper. And this while informing those who asked that no change was being made to the playing strip!
When the new administration took charge, I had some hope that we would see our proper jumper back on the park, if not straight away, at least within a season or two. After all, it looked as though this was an administration which cared about the club members, even adopting, at least on the surface, the Members Charter, which I took to understand that the “club” would engage and consult members on decisions to do with the guernsey, which was shown to be lip service as the decision was made to extend the use of the current guernsey, without the agreed consultation, denying any / all members any say on the matter.
Now is the time to right this injustice, now is the time to petition the members as to their choice, either the Lion & jumper worn from merger, through thick and thin with the history of the three glorious premierships that are associated with it, or the current “lion” which has no history and no glory!
Please give us, the members of the Brisbane Lions, a chance to vote on the strip preferred!
