Fagan seeks to confirm improvement

Fagan seeks to confirm improvement Chris Fagan has spoken about what he and the team hope to achieve in the final two weeks of the season.

Brisbane Lions Senior Coach Chris Fagan hopes the final two weeks of the season can confirm the improvements the Lions have made this season. 

Speaking to the media at this morning's press conference, Fagan discussed the Lions list and his hopes to "spoil" Melbourne's finals chances. 

"It's always good to spoil another team's finals chances. We want to take it up to them," Fagan said. 

"The players definitely don't want the wooden spoon.

"We know we've improved and hopefully the next two weeks can confirm that more. 

"We will do a review at the end of the season and will no doubt come up with lots of ideas on how to improve on and off the field."

Fagan also clarified his comments on Adelaide small forward Charlie Cameron that he made earlier this week, saying the Lions would be interested in acquiring the Adelaide small forward if the Queenslander expressed an interest in returning home.

And that's a big 'if', says Fagan.

"I was asked a question on radio to which I gave a hypothetical answer," Fagan said.

"If a player was interested in returning home, then of course we would talk to him.

"I think people would be better off just to have a closer listen to the answer I gave to that question rather than shooting from the hip, because it was not my intention to upset the Adelaide Crows footy club."

For many years the Lions have been the hunted, and Fagan hopes the wheel is turning.

"Hopefully the reputation of our football club has changed," he said.

"AFL is a very competitive business and every club is trying to improve their list, and most clubs will go as hard as they can to do that, and that is what we'll do."

The Lions are desperate to get off the bottom of the ladder, and face Melbourne at the MCG on Sunday afternoon.
