Dockers prepare for fan backlash
Harvey’s whirlwind sacking generated massive talkback on 6PR’s Sports Central program tonight.
West Coast Eagles legend Glen Jackovich said the Dockers must explain to disgruntled fans why Harvey was sacked.
“What Fremantle has to do is come out at 10am tomorrow and explain all the reasons why Mark Harvey has been sacked,” Jakovich said.
“I’ve spoken to a few people down there [at Fremantle] and a couple of things have come out. One is his erratic coaching in games and the other is his mismanagement of players.”
But his co-host Brad Hardie said the decision had more to do with getting Lyon than Harvey.
“It’s all a furphy,” Hardie said.
“If you could find anyone who could have done a better job with the injuries they had, then they would be Jesus and God all rolled into one.”
Resepcted commentator Dennis Cometti told Channel 7 news he thought Harvey had been harshly treated.
“I’m stunned,” Cometti said
