Brisbane Lions

Brisbane LionsThe product of a merger between the Fitzroy Lions and the Brisbane Bears, the Brisbane Lions entered the AFL under that name for the first time in 1997. They are best known for the triple-premiership era that saw them record back-to-back-to-back flags in 2001, 2002 and 2003. Since that era however they have appeared in the AFL finals just twice.
