Fremantle Dockers . Sunrise Perth. The claims about the Dockers coach were made by Brownlow medalist, Brad Hardie.

Hardie's claims gained traction because of the way Lyon left St Kilda to join Fremantle at the end of 2011.

The Dockers sensationally axed then-Dockers coach Mark Harvey in order to lure Lyon their way.

The Saints were left stunned by Lyon's defection, and the senior coach copped widespread criticism over the move.

But he has since established himself as Fremantle's most successful coach, guiding the club to a grand final in 2013.

Fremantle are currently in the second year of a rebuild after their premiership window shut abruptly early last season.

They sit in 14th spot with an 8-12 record.

The Dockers put in one of their worst performances of the year on Saturday in a 104-point loss to Sydney at the SCG.

But they have been largely competitive in most games this season, even pushing heavyweights Geelong and GWS all the way in recent months.
