It is a strange situation. Take COVID and non professional athletes out of it, would still be awfully odd for a mother and a father with a young child to live in separate states for a period of time. Then factor in potentially COVID still, and they are both professional athletes...makes it even more odd.

Agree. I don't think Treloar is the "A grade elite" that many think he is.
That's right. He's very soft.

I'd prefer keeping guys like Adams, and moving De Goey and Daicos as our future midfield. Treloar has skill but just no hardness about him. His disposals are literally grab the ball and rush kick to nobody in particular when he has some pressure on him. He is not a game winner. I've seen Adams and De Goey win games and drag us over the line on their own, but haven't seen Treloar do this. He was absent in that final last week. I watched him closely and he did nothing.

Suns can have him if he wants to go. No saltiness. He's just not a player that we should be bending over backwards to keep. Preferably I'd like him to stay, but as mentioned.. I would think we aren't going to be throwing everything his way to try to keep him. A reasonable contract for the player he is and that's it - above average, but not elite tier.
 

whispers now!

Agree not a A grade elite but a nice pay packet,Perhaps 650k a year?,I would like to be non elite,Obviously very supportive of his partners needs which is great,All the the best to Adam and his wife with the little one.

Rumour is at least halfway true now that Collingwood have revealed they don't want Treloar anymore and are even willing to pay $200k of his 2021 salary at another club. Suns still considered the frontrunners to land him.

This rumour is becoming more and more real by the day.

He’s contracted for another 5 years on massive coin though. You’re talking like he’s uncontracted and demanding more then he’s worth. The money is already his and from the sounds of it Collingwood want to get rid of him and not the other way around.

Yep, Treloar has already come out and said he doesn't want to leave.

It's not Treloar's fault that Colingwood have really overpaid him.

It's poor optics by Collingwood.

I think it’s disgusting, our club have really f’ed up with payments. This is not Adams fault. You could toss Philips and Thomas for the same cost saving results and we keep the better player. If he is hard to coach then find the way to do it. He has talent and skill, and class.





Edit, yeah I’m flipping here, the clubs statement makes sense. He’s supporting his missus however her career is at its end, which is why she didn’t get a Melbourne contract, he however is in the middle of his. He owes Collingwood. He has history, mental health is now more visual in the AFL, this decision is the best for both parties. Do I think her and the baby should stay in Melbourne? Yes I do, sheis hanging onto the end of her career, he is in the middle of hers. It’s a no brainer. He is choosing to support her but he needs to think of his employer too. How long before he needs another leave of absence?
