LOL that's up there with the biggest fake news.The same people (or similar people) will then say that Lyon backed Harley in and overrode the footy department to demand he get a contract (similar has been said of him demanding Hogan be traded in). He doesn't want Harley or Hogan because they bring great effort, he wants them playing because they are highly skilled.
So depending on the day, he doesn't value skills or wants to override people to bring in skills.
You know why he wanted Harley? The same reason he wanted Lovett at the saints, the same reason he creams himself over Stephen Hill. He honestly reckons you can win an AFL game with six guys that can play and sixteen that bring great effort.
