Unproven coach?? I'm sure there's no need to list the amount of grand finals Ross Lyon has coached and lost by under 20 points. There is such thing as bad luck. Even in 2013 we lost by a couple of goals to one of the greatest teams of all time, despite playing generally quite poorly and hitting the post and kicking out of bounds on the full several times.

Your argument seems to skip over the fact that many of our players are far from elite kicks. How many times do you see our players kick a big looping kick on top of our forwards heads despite being 20-30 metres away only for the defender to come over the top and spoil. That's not ross's fault. An even half decent kick of the ball would have it out in front to be marked on chest or in hands out in front. It is a big reason Sandi hasn't taken as many marks in the forward line as someone his size should have. Well, that and the fact that unless a weapon is involved he doesn't get a free kick no matter how much they chop his arms.

Until Ross Lyon has a squad of generally highly skilled players with the ability to consistently hit targets, we will be playing a defensive style game. Because if we didn't we'd struggle to make the top 4, let alone go deep into September every year.

Pelican, I'm fairly sure you've not included anything in your extensive post that directly supports your hypothesis "Lyon can never bring home a cup" .

A marvellous bird, the pelican....

Its beak can hold more than its belly can.

Pelican, the trouble with writing a lengthy post like that is that after the first couple of sentences, it becomes dribble. Since last Fri night, my coping mechanisms has taken a beating. It's only going to get worst if the unthinkable happens tomorrow, and the cup comes west. So suffice to say, I'm avoiding all the doom and gloom towards Freo.

Pelican,

I can recall being critical of Lyon and even unhappy at the way Harvey was treated but your post is so far off the mark its not even in the same postcode.

Lyon may not be the best coach in the business v=but he would only be incrementally off top spot.

If you want to direct valid criticism, look at Bond first. Better depth in our key talls would have given us a darn good shot at the flag this year and a better response from the club management with respect to the inequities of the AFL and its weird flexible rules applied by somewhat flexible umpires might have made a substantial difference.

But its all Lyon, right?

You are going to need a better basis for your claims than starting out by calling him an unproven coach but I did get a laugh out of that one.

'Players don't bother getting open on mass'...

This is a problem given the number of early Sunday games we had this year.

Interesting think piece. I would like to youbeaut myself for reading through the entire post.

I'm ruling out this is the work of Bizkit writing under a pseudonym.

The thing Ross may like to tweak is that we seem to get cut open by short kicking. I first noticed it in that terrible Richmond game, they just kept hitting up free players with 20-30m kicks to a man leading to space and our player quite a way behind.

Secondly I do worry that the style of play takes a lot out of the players, and we seem to end the season carrying more than a fair share of injuries.

But I reckon Ross only has one below par season before he gets sacked. Steve's don't accept mediocrity.

Although a Pelican can appear bulky, they carry little weight.
Today maybe my first sighting of a blue and gold one.
Gone to bigfooty where there's fewer Docker Haters.
