    I'm sure you're wrong.

    I don't think Fyfe has his head in the right place yet to be a leader of men, but we're going to find out.

    Why do you say that? Because he hasn't signed up yet. I wasn't attacking you ffs, it's a valid opinion.

    Think the men that voted him in would be a pretty good judge. Plus the leadership training that goes into the role these days will help him along the way. It's not like it was back in Buck's day. He won't be left to his own devices.

    I didn't say you were attacking me, just that you were wrong. In my humble opinion, which is just as valid, Fyfe doesn't have the necessary maturity.

    Fair enough, This may well be the case.

    He'll do either one of two things. Grow into the role and lift people up around him, and inspire them to play together for each other to absolute best of their ability.
    Or he'll be a petulant Brendan Goddard clone, who bemoans his teammates on the field and fractures the playing group going forward.

    Personally I think it's 70/30. With the 70% being the 1st option.

    PS, stoked to see Sonny in there finally. The indigenous boys need a leader in the group to take over from MJ going forward and Son Son is perfect for the job.

    With the Freo rumour mill churning overtime the last few months it'll be interesting to see how the wider public view the appointment.

    Opposition supporters may toe the 'Freo hate 'im but need 'im' line - others may argue Mundy wasn't give a fair shake of the sauce bottle under the tough circumstances, Freo supporters may even suggest he's not ready, or that ability doesn't necessarily reflect leadership etc etc.

    Facts are that last year he didn't get the nod, and this year he has. As usual we can only speculate but maybe, just maybe he truly wasn't ready for it before and maybe he now is. Maybe he truly earned respect for his off-field work last year (as opposed to the Frodo-Fyfe mud-wrestling match theory). Maybe Mundy's a great player and leader but does his best work off the spotlight.

    In any event - premiership a'coming.

    Well done to SonSon. Fantastic role model and huge turnaround from where he was. Exciting to watch him rise and rise

    Stoked about this. Fyfe, Walters and Neale. Very happy. Feel for Mundy, just got the raw end of the stick in '16.

    Something we've not talked about though is Johnson being dropped. I imagine he'll be very disappointed.

    could Freo now be considered a Fyfedom

    (at least until he goes to Saint Kilda)

    Media will spin it as Freo 'desperate' to retain Fyfe's services and have made him captain in a bid to keep him.

    Wow he didn't take the bait with the "does this indicate you are staying" question. Bit straight back by saying it doesn't indicate anything
