Oliver is unsettled & unhappy at Melbourne. He’s told them that. He’s told Carlton that too.

Source: Melbourne and Carlton.

He may not end up at Carlton but he wants out of Melbourne. There have been extensive discussions with people at Carlton.

Can confirm we are in talks with Oliver and his management. It will be hard to pry him out of Melbourne but you never know.
Not much in re to Saad, Witherden and a few others of interest to us
Club indeed alot more secretive this time round.
Both first round and future 1st picks are up for grabs

McKay 2 years ~650k

Not confirmed but close
Some inside the club think that the media is either misreporting the numbers on purpose in the hopes it will cause salaries to be made public OR other clubs are feeding them false info to make it seem like clubs are overpaying. Every club basically has a few people in the media they feed stories to.

Oliver is unlikely, but stranger things have happened. Few different mids in play, we don't rate this draft at all so happy to trade out of it. Club sees kemp as basically our fresh blood. I think the WA media talk is actually about Fisher and not Cripps btw.

I gave us no chance of getting Oliver, but last night I received a text form a Dees supporter friend who has good contacts (lots on insight into why Hogan and Watts were moved on before it happened) saying he is hearing Oliver to Blues on a massive deal.

Also hearing Oliver cracked it at the B&F after coming 5th.

Interesting trade period ahead.
