    Brisbane have moved to put an end to speculation that coach Michael Voss will not see out the end of his AFL contract this year.

    The Lions said on Saturday that the senior coaching job will not be considered before the end of the season.

    Chief executive Michael Holmes, in a brief statement, said the club would not respond to further speculation.

    “The Brisbane Lions have consistently stated that the club’s senior coaching position will not be reviewed until the end of the season,” Holmes said.

    “As such, we will not be providing a running commentary on the matter.”

    Brisbane have rejected recent suggestions that Voss’ job could be re-assessed after the meeting with Gold Coast in round 15.

    His contract is due to expire at the end of this year.

    Following their win in the pre-season cup, the Lions have flopped in the home-and-away season, winning just two games.

      That’s what every club says just before the axe falls.

      II concur with the Chairman. The coach’s job should be evaluated at the end of the season, not midway through. It demoralises the playing team causing even more losses, and upsets sponsors. The AFL need to step in and support AFL in Queensland. The Lions need more good experienced players to help with the on-the-job training of the younger members. The Lions Reserves are doing well in the NEAFL which indicates a good future. But with Black, Brown and McGrath about to retire they need more experienced players. The injuries indicate the players are giving their all for the Club in the matches they play. Hanley,Bewick, Green, Rich, Rockcliff, Redden and the defence team are doing their best. So why change horses mid-stream?
