    He comes out with some classic quotes - I wanted to start a thread to highlight some of them.


    This one on the inclusion of Mundy and Barlow in the team to take on Brissie -


    “It certainly helps. Michael Barlow has really given us impetus and we know what David can do. At the end of the day it starts with 't' and ends with 't', you need a little bit of talent, don't you.”

    As long as he takes a leaf out of Paul's Roos book and says

    "Here it is"

    In a few years. He can say what ever he wants in between now and then.

    Be on the 882 at 1820 for more vintage Lyon vernacular. Should be compulsory listening for everyone interested in the tracking of Knyfe's shoulder.

    "keeping the integrity of our selection process" is my personal favourite

    Finally one he brought from the saints but should be our mantra as a Perth side...

    My personal favourite as of this afternoon

    Reporter on Fisher and Goddard: "Do you have a set play for them?"

    Ross the Boss: "Yeah, it's an old fashioned one, it's simple, we're gonna man 'em up. We're gonna play on 'em."

    Go Ross :)

    He can say what he wants until he says absolutely or fantastic. Either together or separately. When he does then i'll know he's joined the rest of the morons.

    He could have been saying that he'd submit him, possibly via flying armbar.
