    I know you're trying to lighten the situation but there are posters out there just waiting for any chance to throw shit at us.

    We only have to wait a few more weeks Salim. The speculation and BS won't stop until he starts playing again. But once he does it will all seem as ridiculous as my previous post.

    The only problem is that if his calf gives way again - people will question whether it's his dedication and whether the drug and alcohol issues have contributed to it :/ Vicious cycle

    While not in the same style, I'm with Way to go and his #FUmedia

    The best retort, is to get back on the park and play blindingly good footy to shut them up. Otherwise, he'll probably still have cameras stalking him in 40 years with news headlines of "ex-docker seen eating plum jam instead of marmalade on a scone with his cup of tea at the lawn bowls" (I'm guessing scones and tea is a prerequisite for lawn bowls?)

    Gotta love Ross's pressers -

    Journo "Kersten said that alcohol bans are case by case - what do you think"
    Ross "I think Kersten is right, they are case by case" hehe

    WA press are a feral bunch. I think it was right for Ross to end the interview when he did, as they tried to ask the same questions in repeatedly in a effort to trip him up into saying Harley was drunk. What did they think he was going to say? "You're quite brilliant, journos."

    The presser with Ross Lyon yesterday.
    http://www.fremantlefc.com.au/video/2017-05-17/lyons-selection-headache
    The link stops just before the finish, but Seven news apparently made a headline out of Lyon walking out of the press conference when the questioning got to Harley Bennell.
    This link shows that he was quite patient early and answered the questions. I assume the questions continued and he cut the presser short. Well, not short because at almost 12 minutes, it's one of the longer ones.

    The last question was iirc from some woman asking about Harley's mental health which Ross then said something like I've already answered everything and finished the interview.

    What we need to do, I already practise is don't watch channel 7 news, read the West Australian. The truth
    is out there.

    For Ross to say he was a drunken drug dealing malingerer who's of no use to anyone.

    5 weeks as quoted by Rossy lands right on the bye. Could mean that they are planning the comeback to happen after the bye vs Geelong.

    I'll be fine if he could do something like this vs them again :):

    Only footage I've seen of Saturday's dramatic events was that shown on OTC Monday night. Showed Harley on the fringe of the huddle talking to his cousin and then walking away as things broke up. Looked to be behaving and walking in a perfectly normal manner. I assume the fine relates to the interaction with the Ch 7 reptiles.

    People often say the Hawks would never have won 3 Cups without Burgoyne.
    This bloke could be a similar talisman for us:cool:

    Seriously tempting me to stop going to the footy and going to lawn bowls instead with those prices...

    I think Ross' initial comments (I think I the Richmond presser) were right about him having a good footy brain or something like that.

    I watched the footage of Harley at Peel and I'm sure I could see him make gestures of the Ump bouncing the ball and mouthing something like "When he bounces the ball try to.... "

    Obviously the behaviour isn't appropriate hence the fine but also not as sinister as others would have it.

    Maybe he did have a beer or two, and maybe he was getting right into the game and wanted to impart wisdom.. Not the best way to go about it though haha.
