Not sure the world is quite ready for Essendon people to be lecturing about ethics.Is Dodo right or is he just being unnecessarily difficult?
Whether or not you think clubs should be allowed to talk to players under contract, it obviously happens league wide as players/clubs want to shore up their futures early rather than a mad rush during trade week only.
As a list manager himself, Dodoro would know this and there's zero doubt he would also talk to contracted players at other clubs during the season. Directly or indirectly.
TOP HAWK GOES WHACK
Tensions are rising between clubs on day one of the Telstra AFL Trade Period, a couple of list managers clashing over club conduct.
Hawks list manager Graham Wright has hit out at Essendon list boss Adrian Dodoro's suggestion that clubs shouldn't meet with players from other teams during the season.
Asked if he had an issue with opposition clubs (read: Sydney) meeting with players (read: Daniher) halfway through the year, Dodoro didn't mince his words on Trade Radio this morning. "Personally, I do."
Wright made his feelings clear, calling Dodoro's stance "immature and silly". Oof.
