Fyfe calls sacked coach after Brownlow win

Fremantle captain Nat Fyfe has become the 15th footballer to win two Brownlow Medals after he polled 33 votes in Monday night’s Brownlow Medal count.

Back in 2015, the Lake Grace product polled 31 votes back in 2015 to win his first Brownlow; this year, the 28-year-old averaged 29.2 disposals per game and lead his team to nine wins earning him six votes more than runner up, Patrick Dangerfield.

Fyfe says he felt he has grown as a player since his first Brownlow.
“I think this year is my best and most consistent season” Fyfe told 6PR Breakfast.
“That year holds a special place in my heart, but this this year I felt, as a footballer individually, I compiled a more consistent, better quality season.”

But there was one big thing missing from the night and that was his former coach, Ross Lyon, Fyfe told Steve and Baz he felt Lyon’s absence.
“I called him immediately after that [press conference] he said he’s a man that doesn’t cry very often but he had a few tears in his eyes.”
