In his weekly BPL Vidcast, Wayne Carey said he was 'disgusted' by Fremantle's treatment of Mark Harvey, and the club had acted brutally by sacking him without warning. Conversely, Carey didn't blame Ross Lyon for leaving St Kilda - and taking up Harvey's recently vacated chair at Freo - because the notion of loyalty had pretty much gone out of football. Now, Carey said, the system had encouraged an 'every man for himself' mentality, and Lyon was just looking after himself and his family. But, aside from the money and length of contract, Carey said it was hard to avoid the conclusion that Lyon also felt Fremantle's young list had much more upside than St Kilda's in the next few years. As for the coaching appointments of Mark Neeld (Melbourne), Brendan McCartney (Western Bulldogs) and Brenton Sanderson (Adelaide), Carey said he could not really understand the accent on young, untried coaches. The dual premiership captain said the best coaches he knew had a 'presence' and a fear factor, such as Denis Pagan, Mick Malthouse and even John Worsfold, and he wasn't sure some of the new breed necessarily had that trait. Oh, and the seven-time All-Australian gives his preliminary final tips, as well.
