    He can visit his family with an hour drive to torquay (well, he can't since he doens't have a license) which is better than an 8 hour drive or couple of hours to fly from adelaide to vic.

    Plus he has family in melbourne, at our football club.

    It was the way Grigg went about it which caused the angst.

    He bolted overseas before letting the club know he wanted a trade & left us in a position where we had no bargaining power to negotiate a decent trade given the Tiggies had an earlier pick in the PSD than us. In the end we had to accept a steak knife (no disrespect meant towards Andy Collins) for Grigg.

    Most players like to see the club they are leaving receive decent compensation in a trade. Grigg didn't give a shit whether we got any compensation at all.

    Didn't give his team mates the decency to know in person let his manager do it.

    Just as bad as hendo

    It was reported this morning that Lever rang all his team mates and told them what he had decided to do, that to me is a classy young guy with his head screwed on. (He received some poor feedback too) Adelaide should make the most of it and get what they can.

    Yep hats off to him for that.

    That is above and beyond. I would have thought a call to the leadership group and a few others would be more than enough. But every player? That shows respect and guts. Picking up the phone over 40 times knowing many of these guys you copnsidered mates are going to give you an ear full.

    Well done young man

    Yep. Everytime I've left a job, I let my manager know, and check with them to confirm a suitable time to tell other people.

    Well, it's an industry full of man-children when you think about it. Straight out of school to playing a game for a living. If they're any good, employers come knocking at their door. Even young players earn way more than I ever will as a teacher.
    These guys don't have to lodge 50 applications to get an interview and go to 10 interviews to get a job. A job which may suck, but you have to keep doing it to pay rent and bills.
    Some players are more switched on than others, but the reality truck must hit pretty hard once a player's AFL career is over, unless they're a Lingy, a Lloydy or a Richo and can walk straight into a sweet, lucrative job in the media. (Then you never have to grow up!)

    True, Lingy's voice is still breaking.

    Get used to it. Players are going to seek a trade for money or chance of playing in a flag
    He wasn't wanted by Ratten. Can't really blame him. Collins was a good pick up.

    Lions still considering the possibility of matching offers for Rockliff according to Fagan on RSN.

    At least their President fell on his sword for his poor decisions.
    Sure is a bit of a rush to get Jeff back so quickly. Interim or full appointment? Interesting.

    Brisbane can push his price all they like - won't effect our pick#3.

    The thing I found amazing about Kennetts return was that he was replacing a guy who wasn't even a hawks supporter. He's Essendon :drunk:

    Great news if true. They would never match if the AFL had offered them band 1.
