for all those people who say he signed a contract so deal with it. have you comsidered the fact the family situation may of unexpectedly changed after the contract was already signed? People all the time break contracts and quit there jobs suddenly for family reasons and go back and get a similar job near home. problem for footballers is that the afl is a monopoly. There is only one employer. Football is also only something that can be done a short time. to quit a job a year early and not work is like quitting your job for four years in the normal work environment. its a massive and unfair sacrifice.
