Last week on the show we roasted Ross the Boss for announcing the retirements of a couple of his Fremantle Dockers charge’s, however this week – Mum’s the word as Ross has decided that he no longer talks about player futures.
Ross, the media darling, said after his sides loss to the Bombers “I’m not here to talk about people’s futures. It’s not really how we should operate”. This came just a week after Ross spoke about the futures of Danyle Pearce and Michael Johnson with the flippant remark “it’s pretty obvious they’re going to exit” denying the club stalwarts the opportunity to announce their retirements from the game on their own terms.
In what was a typically tense, uptight media conference, Lyon answered very few questions on any topic claiming that from now on he was just going to coach. We’ll believe that when we see it.
