Mark Steven has said it's "great to see some loyalty" with Josh Schache's re-signing with Brisbane.
Stevo admitted in the pre-game coverage of Sydney/Western Bulldogs that most of the media had resigned to Schache leaving the Lions at the end of the season.
He said it was great to see a player stick with his side.
"Massive news, and it came from left-field, I think most of us in the media had almost written him off," he said.
"I know that Gil McLachlan called the Lions and said 'well done'.
"(It's) fantastic news, and a great feather in the cap for Chris Fagan, David Noble and the team up in Brisbane."
Stevo believes Schache's contract with Brisbane is likely "not huge".
"He's staying probably for $350,000, which is not huge, plus incentives," he said.
"It's great to see some loyalty. He didn't just chase the cash."
