For a few groups, the stated rational behind not supporting the Roar was the clubs links with the Qld Lions Football club from the NSL. With the last of the ties, barring the tenuous link from the name and the colours, will this change?

Personally, I doubt this will make a difference, at least without any positive action on the part of the club.
