Ross Lyon gave an honest appraisal of GWS' decision to drop their captain Stephen Coniglio for last night's match against Melbourne.

Ross said it was a step to far to drop their skipper for a must win game and claims they "humiliated" him.

"You know what you don't do when you're a leader - you don't humiliate," Lyon said. 

"And the captain of your club has been humiliated."


The Giants went down in a thriller and Lyon believes they could have found a role for their skipper. 

Ross said that he understands the Giants were trying to make a statement with Coniglio, but he would have given him a defensive role instead of leaving him out of the side. 

Wayne Carey & Nathan Brown also agreed that they wouldn't have dropped Coniglio.
