Fed-up Fremantle Dockers fans have launched three separate online petitions calling for senior coach Ross Lyon to be sacked after Saturday's western derby disaster.

More than 1,700 people have signed the change.org petitions following the 91 point loss to the Eagles.

Fremantle managed just two goals from 60 inside 50s, the worst conversion rate in the AFL in 44 years.

Lyon was given a five year contract extension at the end of a successful 2015 campaign, but the weekend's loss has stirred up a new fan furore, with many angry about the club's fall out of finals contention.

“The criticism that's been levelled at the football club is absolutely valid," General Manager of Football Peter Bell told 6PR Sportsday.

Former Docker Michael Barlow believes Lyon will coach out the year but said there are some "big discussions looming" around his future at Cockburn.

"He might not be the right coach for Fremantle, but he's the right coach for one of the other 17 clubs in the league," Barlow told Nine’s Footy WA.

"The soft salary cap and that type of stuff will make it a difficult discussion around Ross Lyon's future because getting rid of him would be costly financially," he said.

Lyon will coach his 300th AFL game against Hawthorn on Saturday.

The Fremantle Dockers declined to comment.
