2023 Queensland Football Hall of Fame – Jamie Charman
Jamie Charman spent more than 4,000 days as a Brisbane Lions player from 2001-11. He had a lot of good times in a 129-game career, but there was one day that was special – so special it made all the other days seem almost irrelevant.
Members ALL IN as the Pride Surges Past 50k
The Brisbane Lions today announced a new Club membership record with 52,373 fans signing on as members in season 2023.
It’s a great trivia question. In the Brisbane Lions’ golden era of 2001-02-03-04, when they won three premierships and played in a fourth grand final, who was the only player to win All-Australian selection each year? Michael Voss? Simon Black? Jason Akermanis?
In Round 14 1981 Fitzroy beat South Melbourne at Lake Oval by 14 points. It was Robert Walls’ 14th game as coach as the great Bernie Quinlan played his 249th game in the 250th of great mate and South champion Barry Round, with whom he would share the Brownlow Medal three months later.
The Brisbane Lions have thrown their support behind a couple budding footballers – Simone Mooney and Rhys Seakins – who represent Fitzroy FC in the respective women’s and men’s Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA) competitions this season.
2023 Queensland Football Hall of Fame – Josh Drummond
Josh Drummond is a triumph for perseverance. Overlooked in no less than eight drafts before finally getting his chance, he forged an excellent 94-game career with the Brisbane Lions that was more impactful than it was long and catapulted him into the AFL coaching ranks.
2023 Queensland Football Hall of Fame – Ben Hudson
Ben Hudson was an almost an accidental footballer. First and foremost, he was a basketballer studying physiotherapy while living on campus at the University of Queensland in 2000. For a bit of fun and exercise, and a little pocket money, he joined the university football team, the Red Lions.
Daniel Merrett is a triumph for AFL Queensland’s Talent Identification Program. He grew up playing rugby league, cricket, volleyball, and touch football and finished a 200-game AFL player with the Brisbane Lions.
