The lowest attended MFC game of the 1990's saw Brisbane topple the Demons in a mid-season bottom of table clash on the Gold Coast. With their win the Bears would draw level on "match ratio" with the Demons but their pitiful percentage kept them on the bottom of the table.

Martin Leslie (31 possessions) and Scott McIvor (5 goals) were best on ground for the Bears, while Melbourne were well served by Andy Lovell who had 33 touches.

The Bears started well, taking a 16 point lead into quarter time before extending the margin to 36 at half time. Melbourne kicked three late goals in the third quarter to cut the margin to 25 points, but a rocket from coach Robert Walls focused the Bears and they extended their margin by a point in the last quarter.

The Bears' day was soured by forward John Hutton being reported for striking Jim Stynes.

Brisbane managed to have three lower drawing home games that season despite avoiding the wooden spoon with a Round 21 win over the even more hapless Swans in front of 4,349 fans.

Best were Lovell, Viney and Yeats.
