No idea - it could all be water under the bridge now, just stating what put his nose out of joint last year.
Yeah fair enough. There’s talk he’s in discussion with the club. His camp is pushing for 2 years to hit FA but the Dees want 4. Not much issue with coin as May and Lever are majority off the books now. Not very far along but there’s movement.

Word was in the hub Cripps had been chatting to Oliver about coming over and a supposed rift between him and Viney was an influence in his decision.
For the people that think Oliver and Viney have some rift they seem to be getting along pretty well this week

The rumours getting around at trade time were massively overplayed with a lot being made absolutely up. There’s no doubt clubs I’m would want Clarry. As mentioned earlier he’d be advised to take a deal to get him to FA. Club would want to tie him up longer. Also I don’t doubt the success Melbourne has as a team will play a part.

Which part was made up?

Absolutely 100% true at that time.

Based on the photo you posted, looks like they may have worked through it. You shouldn't assume that because it seems like they've made up now...doesn't mean something wasn't busted in the past.
It may also be 100% true but severity can be massively overplayed. I can tell you all for fact that Oliver was disappointed with finishing 5th and raised it in his exit interview. I can also tell you that by the time he walked of that interview, it was far less of an issue.

He is a very competitive guy and Goodwin has challenged him to outshine Petracca this year and become the teams undisputed best player.

Saying it is 100% true doesn’t mean it is 100% true.

how do you know this is 100% true, I’d love to know

Apart from the bit where he met with Carlton, he wasn't even in Melbourne at the time lol

I guess some people will believe anything if they want to to be true

That was the story. People were posting he was on site, touring facilities when he wasn’t in the state.
At the time that this was supposedly meant to happen, Oliver was back in the family home in Echuca in country Victoria up my way. I know his mum Michelle very well from my days working with Oliver at the Murray Bushrangers.

Carlton fans live in a pretty delusional world. The way they carried on here during trade time was an absolute embarrassment to themselves.

dazzledavey36 Devastating Boris the little bit of info I have is terms have been agreed, just finalising if it's 2 or 3 years. Looking like 3 and will be announced prior to season kick off.

Similar to Petracca. They get it all sorted early but use the news as a membership booster. Trac was almost 6 month wait.

You're right about some people believing anything if they want it to be true...just like if Oliver and Viney are giggling in a photo recently, there is no possible chance they could have had issues with their relationship in the past. This was the main point of my post.

Hoping that as some of your fellow Dees supporters have said, Oliver re-signs sooner rather than later so that it's not possible for anyone to speculate further.

Don’t think anyone has said Viney and Oliver didn’t have issues, But it also doesn’t mean they did.

you say they 100% did have issues. You seem to know this as fact.

So as I asked earlier, how do you know this as 100% true, because I’d love to know.

So in your post with the pic, you weren't strongly suggesting that they hadn't had issues? If you weren't then, apologies - I misread it.

There is no point in asking me again how I know they did have a grievance as fact...I'm not going to share.

Anyway, glad that they've resolved, and that the Dees are going to extend him. Gun player - would love him week in week out wearing a Carlton jumper. Not to be, was never going to be. The notion of him as a live chance of playing for Carlton was fantasy land stuff.

Just pointing this week they seem to be getting along well.

I have no idea if he’s going to extend or not, but it’s hard to believe only months ago he was wanting out because of Viney and Carlton Big Footy posters have knowledge of this

The rumours of him wanting to go to blues last year seemed way overplayed. I mean Carlton would have told Saad the deals off if they could’ve had Clarry. Reality is mayb he had some grievance but he wasn’t requesting a trade last year. Those stories were total BS.
