‘Opportunity for success’ ≠ guaranteed success. Any bloke with pride would try and break into the side rather than just go and look for a game elsewhere. I don’t think he’s getting a significant pay rise if he’s not getting games, also.I'm not sure playing for the Melbourne footy club 'guarantees success'
The only insane thought would be to think he wouldn't consider leaving. 44 games in his 6th season. If he doesn't stay in the team this season long term then any bloke with pride would look elsewhere. Be negligent not to see if someone wants to double his pay and give him 22 games
