Jarryd Lyons

Recommended Posts

Just been delisted by the suns.

If you're wanting inside midfield depth then i would personally give Lyons a crack. Rate him better then Sheridan or Weller as he actually had some good numbers this year until surprisingly dropped.

Cannot believe they have cut him. 

I dont think he is suited to our team, but gee wiz he would have been handy for them this year.

Another who fell out with Dew. A very good footballer with close ties to the Dees. Snap him up.

Unless there are other issues at play surely there'll be a few clubs lined up for him. I'd say we'd be low on the list given he plays in an area of our strength, but I'd be very happy for him to come in as depth. Seems a strange move from the Suns, maybe there are issues with Dew?

Would know Jake Lever and been with May and Kolo for the past couple of years. Maybe those boys can have a chat with him? 

We are a different proposition now. A destination club going places. Very attractive one would think.

We tried to get him over from Adelaide at least twice.  We may have gone past him now but he’d be an upgrade on JKH, Wagner and Stretch.

Could be handy depth but he doesn't play the same role as any of these players.

I would much prefer him in the team as opposed to Maynard though.

With the worst midfield I think I have ever seen, surely Dew could have got more use out of Lyons and Barlow in particular

Could be an absolute bargain....

Agree.

Replaces Tyson, but with better disposal and higher numbers. 3rd in AFL for clearances and 9 th for contested possession.

Also costs no draft pick. 

Could be a very handy pickup.

Why the hell was he cut from the Suns? Legitimately would've been one of their top 5-10 players at this point I would've thought!

"Lyons averaged almost 25 disposals a game last season and was ranked equal-third in the AFL for clearances (7.3) and ninth for contested possessions (13.6)".

We were keen on him a few years ago. He'd be good depth and is a proven performer. Definitely the pick of the bunch as far as delisted players goes.

Lions have done well lately other than losing Beams. This is another bonus for them.

If people are posting news like Lyons' three year deal, would you mind linking to a source, so it lends your post more credence? Thanks.

And FWIW, Lyons is the perfect depth player for us. He's not A grade, but he doesn't have obvious weaknesses either (unlike Townsend).

You really do need to make your mind up, during the season you have players who are not A graders as list cloggers

How many inside mids do you want, we were confident enough to offload Dom Tyson

Must have been delisted for a reason

Hi Saty. How are you going?

I've never used the term list clogger in my posting days, so don't be too sensitive. I had Kent and Bugg on the fringe and have been on record as saying Bugg would go. He did.

I'm not going to play the man here, so I'll merely say we were confident enough to offload Tyson because we could get a much cheaper replacement and at the same time, land Preuss in the deal. Tyson was most likely a salary cap dump.

Thanks for the source on the Lyons trade.

Yep I agree A huge upgrade on Dom Tyson smart player and if I'm correct, son of ex Demon Marty Lyons who was an excellent player! If my memory serves me correctly Marty Lyons kicked 4 on debut vs Hawks at Princess Park.

Yep GO FOR HIM!!
