The Hawks list was exceptional but Freo didn't have an average list. They had a very good mature list.I agree he should be given every chance, I myself belive the club cooked the whole decision especially in regards to our S & C department. Lyon wasn't given the opportunity to complete the rebuild and was hamstrung by the S & C team.
It seems Longmuir will be similarly effected by it and it is not good enough. That 2013 was so far below the Hawks list it isn't funny, Lyon is gone now but revisionist history about what he was able to achieve with a very limited list is disingenuous and unfair to him.
Posters can and SHOULD seperate the 2 issues. Longmuir deserves our support for at least the first 12 months almost regardless of on-field results but the constant potting of Lyon should also be given a rest.
More scrutiny should come onto the S & C team and whoever has allowed them to stay employed for 10 years.
Who are all these BOG ordinary players you speak about?
