Lions Coach Michael Voss has refused to accept blame for his team’s poor season start.

The Brisbane side have yet to win a game this year with their latest loss being to rookie team the Gold Coast Suns.

Kieran Rooney reports.


It was a sunshine state clash but on Saturday the sun shone for only one team.

After dropping an early goal the Lions struggled against the dominating visitors.

Michael Voss says the club needs to accept responsibility as a team.

Michael Voss, Lions Coach: “I think it’s about spreading the load and being able to spread that accountability. But I understand that’s a natural equation people will make and I’m not here deny that.”

Despite the on field woes Michael Voss doesn’t blame the continued absence of forward Jonathan Brown.

Michael Voss, Lions Coach: “Probably many people have asked the question, ‘how do you actually kick 17 goals without Johnathan Brown?’. That’s a question that was asked not that long ago and we were able to kick that on the weekend.”

Vice Captain Jed Adcock says it isn’t a negative attitude that’s affecting his team.

Jed Adcock, Lions Vice Captain: “Everyone’s got the best intentions and it’s little patches in game whether it’s five minutes or maybe a quarter where silly mistakes happen.”

Former Brisbane player Jared Brennan held nothing back against his old side, scoring best on ground for his performance.

For now the Lions remain at the bottom of the AFL ladder.
