Do you blame me?
Inexperience. Moreso the backline. Each time the ball goes in our defence, I shake because of the inexperience.
We're going to suffer heavy losses in the next 12 weeks as we have a young team who will basically fade. Travelling for 5 weeks in a row in the pre-season didn't help things either.
I think the fate of the Lions was sealed when Voss retired.
If they had a half-decent squad, Vossy would have stayed on for another year, but his retirement showed what he thought of Brisbane's chances of winning a flag.
Brown is a bit like Kobe Bryant - 3 titles at such a young age, and may never win another one again, unless he changes teams.
