Error corrected about Fitzroy in this article
It's a matter of public record that the Fitzroy Football Club still plays in its own right, albeit not in the AFL - now in the VAFA - and is not a part of the Brisbane Lions. Hence any claim that Fitzroy no longer competes as a club and somehow merged with Brisbane is not true and shouldn't be posted as such in Wikipedia articles like this one.
What is true is that Brisbane took over the AFL operations. As detailed by Fitzroy on the club's website (http://www.fitzroyfc.com.au), and within Wikipedia itself for a long time now in the entry about the Fitzroy Football Club (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitzroy_Football_Club). And both the club website and that Wikipedia entry clearly show that Fitzroy still exist and compete as a club on the field.
To reiterate, since Fitzroy still exists as a club, both on and off the field, and since the club clearly states that it was the AFL operations absorbed into Brisbane, not the club itself, it's self-evident that there was no merger.
