    From one great Dayne to another great Dayne!

    Hope Beams finds his love for footy again and good luck to Zorko as the new captain

    Have to admit you could kin of see it coming.
    I hope all is ok, and he can find his love for the game again. He is still an integral part of our side.
    Gods luck to those who have been promoted.

    I'm sure Dayne's family and the club will give him all the support and love that he needs.:'(:( Thoughts to Claye as well.

    Has been clearly out of sorts on the field this season so far and does not look himself. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him take a few weeks off from here.

    Best of luck to him.

    Livestream on the lions Facebook where Dayne is answering questions (think just from Josie). Confirmed he is still going to play, just not captaining indefinitely.

    Good on him for stepping up and speaking out. This wouldn't have been an easy decision to make at all.

    Thanks Binga, we've got your back.

    Brave and right call by Dayne Beams. Clearly he had a very tight relationship with his father and you feel his pain. He has looked lost at times this year.. Played a great game on the weekend so heres hoping he is working back into the groove but happy for him to take any extra time he needs. Get the impression he will still play - just needs to pass the baton on for the responsibility as captain.

    Zorko deserves the position but must also accept with such a honour comes the need to be a leader and stop the silly discipline acts that cost goals - 50m penalties - suspensions and fines.

    I also get the feeling Hodge may well be the on field leader anyway. He seems to be giving the final talk before the players break to go to position.

    Pretty courageous move to put the club first and step down. Hopefully it improves his performance.

    In some ways it might have been easier for him doing the media duties after losses, when you're allowed/expected to be a bit sombre. After a big win like this weekend, its probably tough to for him to be upbeat.

    Probably the most honest and heartfelt AFL interview I have ever seen. Tears in my eyes, and such immense respect and empathy for the man. Take all the time you need Dayne. With leaders (official or not) like these in our club we are in great hands.

    Getting Luke Hodge on to our list will be of even more benefit to us now, most importantly for his off filed support.

    Ballsy move, but the best one I think.

    Not sure how I feel about Zorko taking on the number 1 position though, especially now that he has found his form again. Hopefully it has a positive impact on both Daynes.

    Great sign of good leadership is knowing when to stand down if you can no longer serve the needs of the group.

    He’ll be back, let him focus on his own game. He played wel last week, hope he builds from here

    So brave of him to openly say he is seeking professional help and is encouraging others dealing with their own issues to do the same. As he said, there is a stigma around seeking help when struggling and for someone of his calibre to be so upfront about it is truly inspiring.

    Also a huge credit to him for even playing, his football has been pretty damn good considering his circumstances.

    Now, good luck to Zorks leading the team out. With support from the club around him I'm sure he'll smash it. And same for Binga. With the club rallying around him, he won't be short of any support.

    I’m with you but I don’t see an alternative - it’s way too early for Harris. Hopefully zorko rises to the challenge.

    Blind Freddie could see he was struggling badly and his form was suffering as result. It has actually been fairly incredible he has elevated his play and found form lately. Even in the presser he looks strung out, emotional and tired. Some people move on quickly and others dont, he was clearly very close with his father.

    Can't help but give a clip to those knocking him, calling him washed up, saying we should drop him (yes that happened) throughout his ordeal, I argued in his defense every time it happened. People even saying there is no evidence that his Father was effecting his form etc and it was not related, it was just - clearly incorrect, insensitive and crap all round.

    I think this is great for him and his family, I have some reservations about Zorko being captain, he loses his head a fair bit and gets a bit carried away during games, but I think he should do well in the role and is the obvious choice.

    The club and all supporters will get around Dayne Beams. That's what Clubs do when they are their very best.

    Could see a transition next year, but I don't think putting Andrews in half way through the year would be the correct call.

    Not surprised , and unfortunately I called it last week wouldn't be surprised to see him
    stand down or have a break after watching him against the Dogs.
    Even on the weekend you could tell he wasn't quite right .
    All the best to him and his family, hopefully they can draw support from each other.
    It's when you have a family member sick or worse, life and all it's glory gets put into perspective.

    Zorks had the pregame huddle speech on Sunday , so it seems he already had taken some responsibility, he'll be fine.
