2009 off-season[edit]

The Lions lost in their semi-final clash against the Western Bulldogs at the Melbourne Cricket Ground by 51 points. It was the last game for veteran Tim Notting, who announced his retirement almost a week from the match.[1] Michael Voss was desperate to make some changes to the playing list. The Lions secured three players on the first day of the 2009 AFL Trade Week. Sydney's Amon Buchanan and West Coast's Brent Staker were traded in a complex three-team deal that also involved Brisbane's Bradd Dalziell who went to West Coast and West Coast's Mark Seaby who went to Sydney.[2] In a separate trade on the same day, Richmond's Andrew Raines joined the Lions. The Lions continued to be active in the trade week and on the fourth day they secured St Kilda's Xavier Clarke.[3] On the final day of Trade Week, Fevola was traded to the Lions for Lachlan Henderson.[4] Daniel Bradshaw and Michael Rischitelli originally were put up trade for Fevola but the deal fell through after Rischitelli declined. Bradshaw was incensed at being put up for trade and eventually quit the Lions.[5]

With one of the best team rosters ahead of the 2010 season, Brisbane were expected to once again make the finals. Four straight wins saw them on top of the ladder after round four, but from there the Lions went into freefall winning only three more games for the season.

The Lions got the first goal through new recruit Brendan Fevola. Justin Sherman kicked a 9-point supergoal from a 50-metre penalty. The Lions added a further 3 behinds to take a 1.1.3 (18) to 0.0.4 (4) lead at quarter-time. The Bulldogs got off to a good start, kicking the first goal of the quarter through Andrejs Everitt. But the Lions kicked two unanswered goals through Jesse O'Brien and Justin Sherman, with the Lions leading 1.3.6 (33) to 0.1.8 (14) at half-time. Adam Cooney reduced the Lions' lead, kicking the first goal of the second half. After the Bulldogs scored four consecutive behinds (including one rushed behind), goals to Jordan Roughead and Liam Jones put the Bulldogs in front. The Lions failed to score in the third quarter. Andrejs Everitt extended the Bulldogs' lead at the start of the final quarter, before Justin Sherman reduced the margin back to 5 points with his second goal. An interchange infringement from Brisbane resulted in a 50-metre penalty and a nine-point supergoal, kicked by Ryan Griffen. Jared Brennan cut the margin back to eight points, but that ended up being the final score. The Bulldogs prevailed 1.5.14 (53) to 1.5.6 (45). The Western Bulldogs went on to play Hawthorn at Etihad Stadium in the Quarter Finals. The Brisbane Lions played Carlton two weeks later in a practice match.
