Wait, what?

It is entirely Ross' fault that he didn't develop the Saints players but it doesn't matter which club a player is at they will develop similarly?

That sir, is a contradiction. Either those Saints players are spuds regardless of which club they ended up at, or Lyon had some influence on Blakely's development.

You can pick.

I'm confused couldn't I just flip that around ? If playing older players trading in ready made and leaving the young players to 'develop' was some wonderful strategy how come he left the Saints in such a hole that they're still trying to dig their way out of it ?

The coach can only provide the tools and attempt to inspire. It's still up to the individual to do something about it, they are humans and not programmable robots.
I thought that's what I was saying , you held up Walters as a Lyon development + , I said why didn't it work with these guys and you said it's about personal drive which was kinda what I was saying all along

In summary, the answer is clearly yes. He is averse to risk. He left Saints because there was a very high risk they would be totally s**t house for many years after terrible recruiting - so he got the f**k outta there and headed for the safer shores of Freo.

The problem is people like to talk about st kilda Ross , rather than freo Lyon . He is having a real rebuild where he skip at saint. I not 100% sure he can take freo to a flag as nobody is perfect .

People don't think we should be allowed to criticise anything the coach does so they want the thread closed so they can pretend everything is perfect.
