Defiant Ross Lyon defends ‘hard earned’ reputation as Dockers back their man

A defiant Ross Lyon says he holds “no fears” about the speculation surrounding him and his club.

The Dockers reaffirmed their “full commitment” to their coach on Friday.

The club has been the subject of much rumour and innuendo following revelations of an investigation into harassment involving a club official.

Fremantle president Dale Alcock, chief executive Steve Rosich and coach Lyon all fronted the media on Friday.

Lyon said he’d defend his “hard fought and hard earned” reputation in the AFL and encouraged “anyone that feels aggrieved to go through the official channels”.

“At no stage have I questioned my coaching or commitment to this club,” Lyon said.
