Fremantle could have quite easily said to Brad, no we are holding you to your contract & that would be that. But the club realised that they will get more for him now as his stocks are high because in 2 years time anything can happen, plus he is 2 years older.100% This.
I don't doubt that Brad's partner wanted to go back to Melbourne.
Brad then spoke to his little mate Colin Young.
Colin worked out a massive pay day for his client (as it his job to do)
Brad nominated the Saints and the Saints only.
If it was truly a decision based on his partner's wishes, he would've said to Freo - get me to Victoria on a good contract at whatever club offers the club the best trade deal.
This will keep happening across the league until the players have their power stripped back and the clubs are given an even chance - player trading without their consent.
Again, if Freo weren’t happy with the deal, they could have said no deal at any time & seriously why would you as a professional footballer accept an offer from another club for less time & money so Freo get a better deal?
I think your dreaming on that one.
