Veteran Brisbane Lions defender Daniel Merrett says he can understand why supporters of the embattled AFL club are staying away in their droves.

Just 10,195 people watched Brisbane's 79-point thumping by Greater Western Sydney on Sunday, the club's worst-ever crowd at the Gabba.

"I suppose you're not going to watch your team get beaten every week, are you? All we can do is stick together as a group, train hard and build for the future," Merrett told reporters on Wednesday.
