Belief in Ballarat can fix lazy Lions .
The Brisbane Lions are living perilously close to the edge ahead of their Round 4 clash against the Western Bulldogs. If not for Zac Bailey’s after-the-siren goal, Brisbane would have been the team most spoken about in the media this week. Of course it was only the week before that the team would have beaten Geelong if not for a controversial decision, which would have left them sitting with two wins after three rounds.
