Coaching and GM of Football are very different roles. I'm not saying Lyon isn't qualified but I'm not saying he is either. As for Richo, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Well yeah, I mean I'm not saying I know. I definitely don't. But I would be surprised if a former coach didn't know a little bit about it.

I'm not objecting to it. Just not sure what makes him qualified.
I'm not sure what I'd think of it but I know the media have been talking about that idea for sometime, not Essendon specifically, but that Lyon could be good in a different role in a football department as long as he had no intention of coaching again. The word on Ross when he did coach was that he liked to do everything himself anyway so maybe he does have a lot of experience in doing many things involved in running a football department.

Yeah, that's a fair call. Just wait and see I guess

Ah, that's more like it. Thanks Mojo.
