Did Franklin sign with swans well before it became public
He didnt sign but the deal was done at the start of the year. Im not sure if any of the players knew that early. Maybe Lewis and Rough knew.

I know Hodge didnt know at least until the end of the season.

Same playbook as Ablett with GC
Had an in principle agreement halfway through his last season with Geelong

Clarko probably only met Buddy so he could claim his holiday as a 'work related' trip with the ATO.

But it would be a pain in the ass. Ur on holiday and ur boss is hanging around.
