Fitzroy Lions on bebo and LiveJournal

Posted by Laura on Sunday, 24 January, 2010

There are only two fans of the team on bebo, so this almost doesn’t deserve a post of its own.  Nonetheless, it gets one.  The Fitzroy Lions were one of the original teams in the Victoria Football League.  In 1996, they merged with the Brisbane Bears to become the Brisbane Lions.  Through a series of events, the Fitzroy Football Club replaced their mascot, the Lion, merged with the University Reds and became known as the Fitzroy Reds and now play in the Victorian Amateur Football Association.  That history explains why the Fitzroy Lions have a message board dedicated to them on Yahoo!Groups that dates back 2000. Of the two fans on bebo, only one lists profile information: Male, 45 and from Perth, Western Australia.

As their incarnation as the Fitzroy Reds, they lack fans listing them as an interest on bebo, all LiveJournal clones, blogger. There are no Yahoo!Groups dedicated to the team.  The only place where they have a some one listing them as an interest on LiveJournal.  That person has not updated in 213 weeks and is from Melbourne.

People appear uninterested in defunct teams or small, amateur teams of which the Fitzroy Lions are both.
