Untried assistants, maybe, but you would think with all the energy and excitement that comes with wanting to take the club to new heights and make a name for themselves along the way.

At this stage I'll happily take someone untried who has enthusiasm and ideas. Bring it on.

There are only ever really two options. Untried assistants or tried failures.

Not quite true Shane. Lyon was neither of those when we got him.

What would you describe him as then, rr.

He certainly wasn't a tried success. He had never achieved the goal that he aspired to and won a flag. Either way, he's been sacked for poor performance and rightly so

Fremantle and Lyon was an unusual one because there was a bit of skulduggery involved which most people and clubs are above. I'm not sure we'll be poaching anyone this time around.

Some assistants are hardly untried. JLo started at Freo, did 7 yrs up the road in 2 roles and now at Collingwood, who are traveling alright. I doubt he just sits in the box handing Bucks the Powerade.

Some people are just scared of change, even when it's obvious it long past due.

Add to that, Drubbing, JLo was responsible for Colonwood's forward line and look at how that was setup to suit their players.

I reckon JLo is going to make an excellent Head Coach when he gets his chance

I love change.. The great unknown.
Can we see a new vibrant Dockerland visual theme next year?

Some may be fearful that success may not come from a beheading - I'm just so bloody pleased that there isnt a guarenteed season of excuse ridden downright drudgery standing in for footy. Even better, there is no chance that some fool at Dooker Control is going to get a 3-5 year carte blanche extension.

Yep. Worst case scenario is that we fail differently next year.

Worst case - yesterday it was a sure thing. What are people worried about?

I'm glad Ross Lyon has gone and I'm thrilled that Steve Rosich has gone. I doubted the club would have the guts to make the call and I'm pleased they have.

That said, what I have seen of Ross facing the press shortly after being booted and what he had to say I thought was pretty classy. He handled himself well, obviously holding the emotion in when speaking of the impact on his wife and children. He accepted the decision graciously and wished Fremantle well. I respect him for that.
