He's is pumping his own tyres . He is also defensive about his extending himself. This guy is not doing it on performance. Another year of non achieving social posturing.

I just re-watched the Pyke/Burton press conference on the back of the camp controversy and it is utterly unbelievable that Burton was a) rolled out for the press conference, and b) not sacked immediately.
It is indefensible. It was a complete and utter train wreck. We can look back now and see from the constant and 'categorical' claims that "there are no lingering issues from the camp" that both Pyke and Burton were completely delusional. There was clearly no connection or understanding of the playing group at all.

Agreed and when you combine that with his absolutely insane selection policies, it only makes Pyke look even more out of touch.

The vibe I get from Don Pyke is that he'd be better off as a background operator, like a head of strategy. Somebody who does a lot of analysis behind the scenes but doesn't really need to interact with the players all that much.
