Although Fagan’s men came into the game with a 10-game winning streak, they were thoroughly outdone at the gabba by an experienced Geelong squad.
However, after an open press conference, Fagan surprised reporters with a final heartfelt statement to those suffering from the COVID-19 crisis.
“It was tough for everyone and I think it’s thanks to the AFL and to all the clubs that we survived the season and have only one game left,” he said.
“If we look back on this year historically, it will be a really important year for the AFL that we could bring the season up and down. Hopefully next year we can go anywhere near normal and things will grow again.
“A lot of people lost jobs in the industry this year, really good people. I want to reach out to them and wish them all the best and hopefully find their way back one way or another.
“What I know about all the people who work in football clubs is that they are so passionate about the game and that they are so passionate about the players and helping them get better.”
“It’s just sad to see that so many of my colleagues are no longer working. Hopefully they can find a suitable job and get back to the industry as soon as possible. ”
Fagan’s moving message was praised by Kangaroo’s great David King, who said the trainer is one reason Lions have been able to attract stars in recent years.
“It hurts, no doubt about it, but to be able to go outside of yourself and say you know what, it hurts more than I do, and it’s the ones who have lost their jobs.” it’s no wonder people want to play for this man, “he said to Fox Footy.
“It sounds like you have Joe Daniher after what he just said, and I’m not surprised. When you have a meeting or conversation with this guy, how can he influence you? ”
The 59-year-old’s speech was also praised by Hawk’s great Jordan Lewis, who played as an assistant at Hawthorn under Fagan between 2008 and 2016.
“For a coach who has just lost a preliminary final, a lot would go through his head. To thank everyone, his players, partners and fans, I thought it was a noble act, ”he told Fox Footy.
“He’s real and that happens every time you talk to him. There is a real nature and a real love and care and there are many players in the league who would love to play under him. ”
