WA talkback hot on Dockers' coach sacking

Talkback radio has been running hot in Perth over the shock sacking of Fremantle Dockers coach Mark Harvey.

Many callers responded angrily to Harvey's dumping and news that former St Kilda coach Ross Lyon will take over, but not all are sorry to see Harvey go.

Talkback radio was flooded with calls from angry Dockers fans on Thursday night, with some promising to tear up their membership.

Long-time Freo supporter Esso said he found the manner of Harvey's sacking distasteful.

"Okay, if you didn't want Mark Harvey there at least tell the man you're reviewing it and that you have other options you're looking at," he told ABC Radio.

West Coast Eagles supporter Ron said it was "terribly wrong".

"If I was one of the Dockers players, I'd go over to Melbourne and I'd get Ned Kelly's chest plate and I'd stick it to my back so I didn't get knifed in the back mate."

But caller Rita said she was not sorry to see Harvey go.

"I love Mark Harvey as a person but he certainly hasn't got the fire in his belly to take Freo to the next level," she said
