It's not about perspective.
It's about whether you open the box or not.
While the box is closed, we're still alive...... and dead

I can't bear to look.

Furthermore, I still want to be able to read dockerland, so kindly refrain from posting any scores during the season. Thanks

I'm just saying, Corporal. If you want people who write about sport for a living understanding an issue and communicating that to the public,then you need to explain the issue properly to them.. They are people who's research involves being told things.So you have to tell them or they will write what they think they know. The West Australian were always going to run a big headline, the editor is a child, but if the club had been more honest and the coach didn't talk talk in riddles, maybe the coverage wouldn't have run so deep.

They're in a position to educate the journalists, and through them the public, but the message they sent was convoluted and boils down to people shouldn't talk about mental health.

Yeah, nah. The west was always going to run headline grabbing images, no matter what Lyon said. Even if you could translate it.

I'm surprised they didn't have the additional crass to show how well Gaff is feeling about himself.

The press, with the huge resources available to it, should not need education on mental health from a football coach. The west has published many a story on mental health and sooner or later it must click to them that sensitivity and understanding may be the best choice...rather than assuming the public want to see cheap coverage of an issue that is a step away (potentially) for all of us.

That's all well and good in theory but that's not how it works in real life.

So real life is coach explaining the intricacies of mental health to journos, who then take this info to editor/s, and collectively they come up with a thoughtful, caring piece on mental health and the effects on families and individuals?
With all due respect, I disagree.

Well then don't complain when they don't understand.

That is the point. They understand but choose the low road. I will never stop complaining about poor journslism.

Lyons job as our coach is for our squad to reach it’s highest potential on the field. I don’t think it is right to criticise him or berate him based on his responses regarding an off field issue with one of our players. He has an obligation to look after our players and by all accounts he does this and the players respect him for it.

I don’t agree with everything he does with regards to how we play the game but I draw the line about how well he addresses the media about issues like this. We have a football manager, president and CEO that should address these issues rather than leaving it up to our coach. I think his responses to the media have been reasonable.
