They might give him a guaranteed ad campaign with Balfours in lieu of the final two years.Chapman: No, there's not termination payment. But on a separate and unrelated note, this week we've decided to donate to the Don Pyke Children Private Education fund, the Don Pyke Golf Membership fund, the Don Pyke International travel Charity and an undisclosed Upper Middle Class Housing Project in Western Australia....
Started doing his jobCan't argue that Clarke hasn't done well with the AFLW team. There used to be almost as many calls for his head as Campo's - those callers have all gone silent this year, partly due to the emergence of ROB, and partly due to his success with the AFLW team. Note that nobody has listed him in their "top-5 AFC personnel who need to be sacked" lists.
Burton, on the other hand, needs to be drummed out of the club ASAP.
I've been clear all along. If Burton and Campo are at the club, I'm out. This changes nothing.Bitterly disappointed by this. Thought he was the right guy, but we needed to surround him with better people. If he is the ONLY one to go out of our present group of coaches... I’m not sure how I’ll respond to that, but pretty sure it won’t be pleasant.
Consistently getting flogged in finals.Pyke just made the following comment, "To get the club back to playing consistent finals footy".
Herein lies the biggest issue that the club has, this is what the club ultimately views as success.
Not premierships, just playing consistent finals footy.
I feel the same Jenny.Bitterly disappointed by this. Thought he was the right guy, but we needed to surround him with better people. If he is the ONLY one to go out of our present group of coaches... I’m not sure how I’ll respond to that, but pretty sure it won’t be pleasant.
Because he doesn’t desperately need the money and he looks better choosing to walk, rather than potentially being pushed.Can’t understand why Pyke would do that unless he has the Freo job lined up. Otherwise why would’nt he just wait and take the money?
Chapman vs Burton is a really tough one for the 1. spot. Chapman is more fake than any show on MTV so I'll go with himThis, this, this, this and this.
If you think Don is even close to the person we need out of that club you’re a mile off.
Agree with the first bit... but seriously... we don’t know it’s a sham until its over. At least wait for that.Pyke came out of that looking better.
After watching the presser, I'm almost completely convinced Don walked because he has lost all faith in the club and the review appears to be a sham.
Foxfooty.com.au has spoken to multiple sources in the hours since Pyke resigned. Not one referred to the 50-year-old as a bad bloke or an ordinary character. On the contrary, every single person said the ex-West Coast assistant is a reasonable, highly intelligent man. He had not lost the playing group, and he remained aligned — perhaps too much so — with Burton and senior assistant Scott Camporeale.
