Why does the West waste ink on Lloyds comments on McGovern? Its more of his negative rubbish on a bad hair day.
A fine example is Lloyd's comments on a MCG Friday night game in 2016 that Fremantle Football Club should never play a Friday night game because luck of interest.
I was at that game which was the smallest crowd of 20,320 since the 1940's plus the coldest since 1940's
No mention by Lloyd about the Collingwood supporters boycotting their games which was big news in Melbourne at the time because they were disgruntled with Bucks & Eddie...who" hiding" in Italy at that time.

I thought his assessment of McGovern's game pretty accurate. McGovern had the audacity to believe he knew more about what the Swans would do in attack than the Swans themselves, and paid the price. We have often speculated here on Dockerland that the eagles would be in trouble if sides took the option of keeping the footy away from McGovern, and we were proved right the other day. The big question is "were our coaches watching the game?".

I can’t recall any game where Elvis was beaten by Buddy......just saying. McGovern looked scared and out of his league one on one.

I thought McGovern was always going to be useless at the SGC and their reliance on him is probably why they haven't won at the SCG in his career. He's got one trick that elevates him above average, which is reading the long ball coming in and marking it. There's no long ball at the SCG. There's no room for their style of footy. They need to learn a second trick.

A "commentator" pointed out that the SCG is actually longer now than it used to be, and the eagles haven't adapted their game style to that either.

But the criticism from these toxic commentators is too much - McGovern is selfish, such and such had the temerity to smile after a loss so he doesn't want to win, a team that has two bad losses doesn't stand for anything. It's appalling. It's character assassination. If the AFL wants to get serious about mental health it will look at the likes of: Kane Cornes, Lloyd, Barrett, Garry Lyon......they really offend me the way they speak about the kids playing the game.

Good point Hypen. I reckon McGovern has a good attitude to the game. Remember when Walters marked over him last derby? McGovern gave him a look as if to say "Well done". McGovern is the sort of bloke I'd want on my side - something I can't say about quite a few of his mob.

Yeah, a fool will always want to appear as an equal. Mikey sized him up and beat him at his own game.
