No doubt Geelong could keep him if a deal can’t be done with another club. Surely it would be better for him to stay there than risk entering the draft. The only problem with your second point is that Tim has a contract with Geelong not the AFL, which I’m sure his manager will also be aware of when discussing his options.What you may find though ..is if Geelong get the feeling that they are not being treated fairly ..they will run the gauntlet ...with the underlying feeling that he will sign with us for another year rather than risk a draft outcome..
The comparison to a normal job is not clear... some may compare signing up to a organised business like the AFL is similar to joining the army.. and if the players join the afl and its systemsyou agree to be sent anywhere within that system.
