Chris has been calling this for a couple of weeks now and it has finally reared its ugly head.

Not sure its worthy of getting the boot over... which is what was rumoured.

    Low 5 figures. Gee whiz

    Love to know what was said and in what context. Sounds like he has said something inappropriate privately in passing and got a very strong reaction which he has realised and gone straight to the club...

    Channel seven running with the first interview since the story broke about Lyon tomorrow night with his regular Tuesday night section . Be interesting to see if Brazil has the balls to ask him about the allegation

    Good on you Basil. Invited Ross to come clean on seven tonight.
    Kept at him. Well done. Ross must have rehearsed repeated answer thoroughly. :^o

    Word on the street was that it was more than a flippant comment and the $10,000 was considerably light on. B-)
    The more lesser version of events seems to be getting a big run for what most would consider a minor offence.
    Michelle Cowan quit her job at the Dockers in April and said it was a difficult decision because she loved her job and was passionate about coaching ???
    Protest decision ??? Just putting it out there !!!

    Good news for Freo if so - can get a decent coach, and save $ on his payout.

    Any news on Ross the Boss ?

    i had heard news going around that he had resigned or was about to resign.  That was taken from someone who knows someone who knows someone close to the club heirarchy. Could all be bull dust.

    FREMANTLE has reportedly made a move to prepare a replacement for embattled coach Ross Lyon over the club’s sexual harassment scandal.

    A “bombshell” report on Friday morning claimed the club has already made the first move to appoint former assistant coach and West Coast legend Peter Sumich as head coach — if Lyon’s tenure is discontinued.

    Lyon’s coaching future has been left to hang for more than a week after it was first reported he was the man at the centre of the club’s sexual harassment, hush-money scandal.

    The Herald Sun earlier this week reported Lyon followed a female staff member around at a boozy club function and made a series of crude remarks to her.

    The report said Lyon told the woman he liked her “budding boobs”.

    The report claims the woman’s official complaint against Lyon was settled when a payment of more than $100,000 was made to the woman. The settlement also reportedly included a non-disclosure agreement.

    On Thursday night it emerged that a second complaint of inappropriate behaviour has been made against a Fremantle official — although the staff member has not yet been publicly identified.

    The storm engulfing Fremantle is growing, with the club referring the second complaint about an employee to the AFL’s integrity unit.

    The club is reportedly at breaking point following a report on Friday that Lyon will cease to coach the club and West Australian U18 team coach Sumich will be given the top job.

    Well, they're looking for a replacement after the Burnie Dockers recently had to leave the Tasmanian State League (TSL) due to a lack of players. :)]

    for now........

    it seems all they were worried about was addressing the issue at hand and the that it is a workplace and blah blah blah

    no ones cares, all we want to know is if and when he's gone
