I don't think that rumour is true, but even if we did all the above and he was like 'yeah cool', this has been a very tough year and I can see why the lure of home is very strong compared to the period where we interviewed him. I think he is a massive flight risk personally, just my opinion, but maybe not in 12 months, more likely at the end of his next contract.The thing I don't buy is we would have interviewed him a year ago about the prospect of moving to Adelaide. You'd get signs from that about how he'd feel about the move.
If we give him games and a decent contract, which it seems like we are, then the only remaining reason would be he hates it here. Surely that's something a pre-draft interview would catch, especially with our talk of drafting good leader type blokes.
If he was enough of a flight risk to tell the club a year out he's gone, then we would catch it before the draft.
