At the end of the day AFL is just a job for these players and it's only for 10 years if you have a decent career. So why wouldn't Oliver have a chat to at least see what they're offering . Doesn't mean he wanted to leave. At the end of the day he has resigned so who cares. This was all only started because McClure said he didn't look happy at the bnf yeah?Dont really get Sam Mclure's criticism of Oliver saying he was never going to leave. Clarry meeting with David Teague last year is evidence of nothing, only that he was willing to play the game to bump up his price.
Judd met with melbourne when he moved back east but was he ever a snowballs chance of coming to the dees? Hell no. He's just a businessman extracting the best price.
It was just business, 'Scoop' and carlton got played. Nothing personal.
