When Western Bulldogs President Peter Gordon was on Triple M's The Hot Breakfast recently he put it to Luke Darcy to come on to the Bulldogs' board to pick the new coach.

"Initially my reaction was no, mainly for the reason that I enjoy being independent," Luke Darcy said on Triple M's The Hot Breakfast.

"A lot of people who are involved are very close friends of mine, this does mean a lot to me, I want to see this place in the best possible shape.

"So I am going to be part of the committee, John Worsfold is going to be part of the committee as well.

"We have our first meeting this afternoon to try and pick the next coach."

Adelaide youngster Jarryd Lyons has signed a new two-year contract with the Crows. 

Lyons, who played 10 of his 22 career games this season, reportedly attracted interest from rival clubs during the recent trade period. 

But the 22-year-old will now call West Lakes home until the end of 2016. 

“I met with Phil Walsh and like where the club is heading,” Lyons said. 

“It is an exciting time and we are all ready for the hard work ahead.”  

Adelaide football head David Noble said the club was pleased with Lyons’ ongoing development. 

“Phil Walsh and I think his ability to play forward and through the midfield can be a real advantage for our team,” Noble said. 

“He is a player who should push for a regular spot in the line-up in 2015.” 

Lyons was taken at pick No.61 in the 2010 draft.

Montgomery In Box Seat

Glenn MacFarlane says Brett Montgomery favourite to be next Dogs coach

(Image: Western Bulldogs)

The Western Bulldogs senior coaching job is Brett Montgomery’s to lose, according to Herald Sun sports writer Glenn MacFarlane

MacFarlane told Triple M’s Rush Hour on Monday that the Bulldogs players loved senior assistant coach Montgomery. 

And given it’s been widely reported that the playing group also had a big say in former coach Brendan McCartney losing his job, Garry Lyon suggested there was friction between Montgomery and McCartney. 

MacFarlane also said that Montgomery’s chances of replacing McCartney would be aided by the fact he was ‘tight’ with club president Peter Gordon.

VFL could be making the move to commercial TV.

There are reports that the ABC’s longtime association with the VFL could be in doubt due to funding cuts.

AFL.com.au report that the ABC has not committed to broadcast the state league matches next year due to 'funding uncertainty'.

"The ABC has always indicated that it was unable to commit to new seasons until the current budget situation was resolved and indicated it would not stand in the way of those respective leagues looking elsewhere," an ABC spokesman told AFL.com.au.

It may result in the VFL being shown on a commercial network - with Channel 7 being the obvious destination after their successful takeover of SANFL broadcasts this year.

You can read more about these developments on AFL.com.au.
