Michael Voss statue for the Gabba
Petition Background (Preamble):
He is widely regarded as one of the greatest players to play Australian rules football.
During his 289 games for the Brisbane Bears/Lions, he has won the Brownlow Medal - the national competition's highest award.
The Brisbane Lions captain lead the club to 3 consecutive AFL premierships, a feat which has been equalled only two other times in over 100 years of competition.
He is the captain of the Queensland Team of the Century.
He has captained Australia and was an All-Australian 5 times.
He won his club's best and fairest 5 times and the Most Valued Player in the AFL two times.
Voss put his body on the line for his club and country, playing through debilitating injury during his career.
His off-field reputation is exemplary and he is widely recognised as one of the fairest players ever in the competition and is a statesman for Aussie Rules in Queensland.
Vossy's feats are comparable to the Emperor of Lang Park - Wally Lewis - who has rightly a statue in his honour at Suncorp Stadium (Lang Park). We believe that "The Boss" also deserves a statue in his honour at the Brisbane Cricket Ground - a ground that Voss helped to make a fortress for his club.
