AFL Power Rankings 2019: Round 21

What a weird weekend of football. I could be sad that Fremantle’s season is effectively over, I could be amused by the impressive efforts of Essendon, North or GWS put into losing, or I could be enthused at the prospect of continued uncertainty around finals positioning. A fortnight of 2019 footy remains for ten teams.

I’m a popular guy today, it seems. Multiple people wanting my opinion.

Fremantle sacks Ross Lyon and CEO

Team on the rise? The Giants strike me as a team that’s been on the verge of the maximum rise for a while and hasn’t capitalised.

Although, their talent is still impressive, and the fact that they’ve been unable to capitalise means they’re a challenge. And Ross does like a challenge.

Nein, danke. I’d rather not.

I don’t see what Scott would offer, plus I’d prefer we go with someone untried – not a coach that quit a club less than four months back.

Ross Lyon, the Bell tolls for thee

And your favourite day, too!

You seen Hardie’s comments this afternoon? Jeez, they’re harsh.

Yup. This is your favourite day in history.

Oooh, it appears Ross doesn’t agree with the decision (but respects it!, of course).

I’m also noticing a fair bit of sadness through the lads – Walters, Luke Ryan, Wilson and Brad Hill have all posted on Instagram signifying their appreciation for Ross.

The whole time I’ve followed this sport, Ross has been the coach of Freo. So this is a bit strange for me.

If I’m honest, I’m not surprised he’s gone, but I’m pretty surprised about the timing.

Wowee. That’s stunning.

My phone doesn’t usually blow up with a heap of messages in a short period whilst I’m at work, but I’ve just had five friends and my dad all tell me the same news!

This is a huge surprise. I thought he’d just about secured his job for next year.

I’m only hoping that we get a new coach bounce this week; it’ll be my first Freo game I’ve ever attending without Lyon as coach.

Ah, right you are. Blame it on Sunday night writing brain.

Last week I hated the Doggies, this week I hate Richmond! Hah.

It was good for the nostalgia, your holiness, but I prefer our current look.

That’s an awful decision, jeez.

We also won the disposals by 70-odd touches, contested footy by 55 and had 14 more clearances. A pretty humiliating loss tbh.

I should’ve listened to you, and definitely should’ve tipped the Doggies this week. I can assure you they’re gonna get a boost in the power rankings this week. However fruitless the rankings are, I’ve had them too low for a while now.

Harry never went personal, Pete?! That dude epitomised the personal attack, hah. Anywho, we should just be glad him and his push-ups are long gone.

Enjoy the game, Macca. You’ve (unintentionally) picked an unexpected beauty to go and see.

I’m headed to Freo’s clash here next weekend – only seen us win once in Adelaide so hoping we can play spoiler to Port. I’m going with a Port supporting mate, so I damn hope so.

Pretty sure Harry was banned, dunno about good old Matty.
