They all said Geelong right into him - true. Nobody said he was gone that I saw. Generally not too much credibility amongst them, true, but nobody said he was gone.

Bullshit.

They ran with it all the way, throwing up trade hypotheticals and all!

It's disingenuous and devious reporting.

Fair call - truth should not be taken literally. Nobody said Higgins was gone.
“Plenty of people around this are convinced he’s going to Geelong already, but the official word is it’s still being worked out,” he told SEN Breakfast.

This is journo speak for 'I believe he's gone but I need some wriggle room for if/when I'm wrong'

Yes, exactly.

Don't commit but say enough that it sounds like you've called it if it happens.

This shit happens repeatedly every year and no doubt the clowns trade off the few times they luck out and guess correctly but they have a lower success rate than picking random stock market selections or * in finals.
