    Good on the Dockers, at least Lyon isn't going to make 100 excuses at every press conference.

    if i was our recruitment manager i'd be in the ear of every good dockers player talking about stability, success, culture and premierships and saying how lovely it is down the road.

    I would like to see what happens when a club actually sticks with a coach through the bad times and gives him a chance to turn things around... O wait..

    I think it'll pay off.

    While Harvey's recent record wasn't that bad, and he has layed a great foundation for the future, those closer to the camp say his people skills weren't much chop.

    Who actually cares on the Eagles board? This should be on the Dockers board, but I'm feeling cheery so I'm moving it to the general discussion thread. :)

    I'd suggest it has more to do with over-ruling medical staff.

    At least there's one former coach that won't be heading into the media, I'd hope.

    Wow. On Lyon's part, pretty poor negociating a deal with the dockers, while at the same time fibbing about being committed to the Saints.
