Every chance Sumich will get the gig with his mate Pyke as a assistant. Any thing is better than one man band Lyon.

Don Pyke quits Adelaide Crows

What a load of rubbish…………

Don Pyke quits Adelaide Crows

Ross Lyon is a dinosaur, any club would be stupid to appoint him. As i and 13th man predicted he had to be sacked and we were proved right. A survey of the club members of which 77% of members supported the boards decision. Longmuir is the natural replacement, Pyke is no chance but he would be a handy assistant to Justin if he wants him.

Your right Scotty, but it is hard to see him getting to the Eagles ,would he give Freo 100% ?

Hey Richie or was it True Tiger i told you 8 weeks ago get on the Tiges at 20-1 a lazy two grand for me…..but i don’t win to often, but i still reckon they will win it.

An AFL finals series full of intrigue awaits

True if not for Adelaide and Perth’s money we would have a VFL with four (4) teams today…….. how exciting !

Agree on Powell-Pepper Josh, love to see him back home in Perth at Freo but unlikely i would think, but he was dropped to the twos that wont happen at the Dockers.

Trading for trading's sake is why Port Adelaide have tread water for five years

The gap between the VFL and the WAFL, SANFL was very marginal considering the large population difference. It was players like the great Polly Farmer etc that moved to play in the VFL that made that competition slightly better.

There was one weekend both Perth clubs were playing interstate……..very fair, especially when you have the best stadium in the country.

Great call Jack A your 100% spot on.

Reports today indicate Eagles are into Bolton big time, he is someone Freo could really do with.

A survey in fact was conducted and nearly 80% in fact 77% supported Lyons sacking ….not Longmuir, but clearly he ticks all the boxes.

Brad Hlll gained more possessions at Freo than Hawthorn but his skill level and turnovers like most players under Lyon deteriorated to a low level as was the case with Ed Langdon. It was one of the reasons why Ross got the old heave ho.

Buying Brad Hill won't fix St Kilda's lack of a strong foundation

As I predicted Months ago Lyon sacked and replaced by Longmuir, great move from The board and supported by almost 80 % of the members. As Fyfe said Freo need a “well equipped modern day coach” and “know how to build personal relationships “ and ” build a good culture” Ross could not offer this. Not just a few favourites. Lyons philosophy of Effort rather than Skills also was a major down fall for him and like Simpson did at the Eagles, the new coach will have a big influence in this area I am sure. At last he has been given the old “ heave ho “

I agree pick 6 and Langdon for Kelly good result.

I was wrong about the Eagles, i like most thought they would kill a depleted Collingwood at home. To not score for 46 minutes is terrible.I was right about Kennedy, they cant win a flag without him at his best. Forget the weak flu excuses he has been down all year, he may still have a odd good one but to me his best is long gone.They will bounce back and still make the top four, but no chance to go back to back.

Pies stun Eagles in thrilling grand final rematch

Agree 100% Cat him and my mate Lyon are dinosaurs, very surprising for me. Good news for North and Shaw.

John Longmire signs new contract to remain at Swans

The only thing of interest in this game is Grundy V Nic-Nat the two best ruck men in the game for the past six years. Eagles by at least six goals for me.

West Coast vs Collingwood: Friday night forecast

Love your passion for the game Downsey, have you ever played or thinking of having a go ? I have read your comments and highly regard your knowledge of Freo and the game. You can coach go for it.

The girls of grassroots footy

You will never see the game played as it was in the first 5 years of the so called AFL. Nothing compares to the great SO Origin games between SA, WA and Vic. Apart from a few the skill levels displayed are ordinary to say the least in today’s game.

Footy is in a funk

Why ? because Mundy would of been a far better leader of men, and Fyfe could of just done what Fyfe does best, play footy, and the club may have been in a better place IMO.

The Lions aren't just a finals contender, they're a premiership contender

Love Dave Mundy 34yo on the the 20th of July…..should still be the Captain.

The Lions aren't just a finals contender, they're a premiership contender

Martin a ruck man who is underrated, can match it with the best. A back line as good as any led by the best Andrews, the master Hodge and D.Rich. Cameron no better small forward, if not the best, highly dangerous, along with McCarthy and Rayner, Talented tall’s Hipwoodand and McStay.
Neale dominates the clearances and stoppages along with veteran gun Zorko backed up by McCluggage, Robinson,Berry and Lyons the list is endless. Look out there building nicely they won’t have any worries with the MCG its all on the day.

The Lions aren't just a finals contender, they're a premiership contender

No…….The same could be said after round 16 the years Richmond and the Bulldogs won flags .Far more wide open this year.

The Lions aren't just a finals contender, they're a premiership contender

I couldn’t agree more Justin, there as good as any team in fact better than most. Two years ago they were close to a basket case. When Lachie Neale walked out on Freo there fans screamed why would he leave a club with a far better list, but the Lion’s are close to a flag and Freo have lost there last 3 and appear to be going backwards, lose this week and drop to 14th,The lions have few weaknesses now and not only has Fagan done wonders but Hodge has been sensational.They are better poised to win a flag than Richmond and the Bulldogs were. Big Watch !
