I won’t be posting again on any other posts but will finish this one out, I am little like our team whipped into submission. I have tired of every post divulging into Lyon is the anti-Christ.
Please go back and read my posts within this thread. I wouldn’t say that they are exactly singing Lyons praises. I made a point that I actually thought Lyons plan of 3 rucks worked.
To say Lobb is a centre half forward is a little disingenuous. I watched a lot of Lobb at GWS and was big on trying to get him across, he played a lot of ruck time.
Both Sandi and Lobb forward proved a head ache for Sydney and helped with a forward structure. Unfortunately Darcy is proving a disappointment this year. If you could guarantee Sandi would get through a game, I would guess Darcy would be left out. Unfortunately Darcy is the very essence of lumbering and unfit.
Was it ideal? absolutely not, does it change the issues I see with us? Unequivocally NO.
It would seem that to raise any opinion that paints any positive on Ross Lyon, is equivalent to wanting him knighted. I though it was a tactic that was doomed to failure that in the end contributed to a win. Just because you shout louder than me doesn’t make you right.
Also I apologise for calling you a flog Shane, it was unnecessary and unappreciative of all the hard work that you must put in behind the scenes.
There is no need to call the crowd control officers, I will show myself out.

No one attacked you or censored you or shouted louder than you. You said you thought it was a good tactic, I said why I disagreed and you kicked over the water bottles.

Has Lyon gone yet.

When he does, it'll be like Hillsong around here again.

Here's a win you can try out today DbtS

Go order your free Big Mac. When the counter assistant asks 'will that be all?', answer is 'Yes thanks' and you'll feel all smug for having taken some small change from the pockets of macdonalds shareholders. Not many people get to do that.

To go the whole journey, take your membership on to another Maccas

Rinse and repeat.

I will put my hand up for being a flog, DBTS, a hairy flog if you want total honesty, but I agree with Yeti & Shane's assessment of where we are.

I also struggle to believe you think Darcy is useless, he led the hitouts, and was good around the ground, agile enough to win the footy on the ground against the mids more than once. He had more hitouts, more possesions than Aliir, Aliir took more marks, but to my recollection that was mainly because of Freo's policy of standing off opponents until the footy gets into their forward 50.

See, the problem I have is that I believe that a one point win on the weekend was the worst possible result for the club. Reinforces the status quo. Here's a little something- recent goals scored per quarter inc Melb game: 4, 2, 4, 1; 5, 1, 2, 3; 1, 0,1, 0; 0, 4, 2, 2; 1, 2, 3, 1: Getting better right?

For the hell of it, Ave: 1.95, median 2, mode 1

The club is saying Ross Lyon is going nowhere.
That's means he's gone.
Article about Guy McKenna in the West this morning and highlights this stupid question asked by board members and the media in the first week in October " do you expect to play finals next year ?". He didn't say what he wanted to say or Yes or No.

RM I also agree with Shane and Yeti.
I put one point forward where I thought Lyon made one good tactical move.
I didn’t say that Darcy is useless, I said he has been disappointing. I thought he was very slow and looked unfit to me. Will he be ok, he is only 20 so has lots of time to get there. I thought he was the weak link of the three and would have allowed Lobb and Sandi more time forward if he was better.
Thinking on it. How would others on here have managed a forward structure differently? Given the absence of Taberner, Hogan and Darcy and McCarthys I ability to offer anything of real substance.
I will say again. No we won’t make finals and we need to make dramatic changes to both the way we play football and the structure of the club.
