Oliver Rumours on Footy Classified

Interesting what you find on Essendon bigfooty..

One of my friends knows a few fox footy commentators. There’s truth to the Oliver rumour. But it does look like Carlton are in the box seat for him.
Not sure how they’ll manage Williams, Oliver and Saad. In addition to all the players they’ve just re-signed, and no clarity on what the cap will be, so we’ll see how that goes.”

With a bit of follow up..

That he [Oliver] isn’t happy at the Dees and would be open to a trade.
Dees are apparently looking to get into the first round for draft picks. And would consider a deal (that was obviously good for them).
Viney, Brayshaw and Oliver were all options. But Oliver was the one more open to a move.”

IF (and it's BigFooty so it's a massive "if") we were to 1. Trade Oliver, AND 2. Do it to get into the first round this year, of all years, I reckon I'd just about pack it in.

I exchanged texts with one of the players this morning. I asked him about Clayton and he said it was crap and he asked me where I'd heard the rumour. (He hasn't tuned into any footy related media sinc

My god this club is literally disintegrating. Viney can't stand Oliver to the point where he will leave the state. It's obvious from the body language Max & Clarry are both off to the Suns.

You go and spend 12 weeks locked up with your work mates and your boss. And your bosses boss. And all the support staff whose jobs it is to micromamage every aspect of your life. No escape, no break.

Goody is in win now mode, we'd be trading our future picks for the next four years if we were allowed to, seems illogical

Even if this was true why would you trade in a draft compromised year and while still under contract, he is only going to get better and be worth more in another 12 months plus is required if we want to improve next year, look no further than Cats trade for Kelly. Totally beside the fact he has only ever shown love for the club and team mates

He’s probably our best recruit for about 25 plus years, still with a huge ceiling, Already a  winner of 2 of our B&F’s, Coming into his full power. Ie The epitome of the future of the club. If we lost him  I might just pack it in too.

Demons need to sit down with Clarry like they did with Trac and sort  this out.
 

Tjis would be almost like Barassi switching Clubs and the draft does not Warrant the Abandoning  of 5 years of recruiting.

Cripps would be the only player I would trade fir Clarry  if this  was to eventuate.
Club has to stand up and see what Clarry has to say and solve.

Mahoney ( this season) and Goodwin ( at end of season) won't survive this If it happens. It will rip the heart out of the Club. Clarry has to realise that he is part of a team and not just an individual playing his game.

Nice to see you're giving Spargo plenty of time

Spargo deserves the time as he is a clever footballer who uses the ball and generally tackles well. Does need to be more consistent but I believe his upside is good enough in his 4 th year to give him this year to improve further. 

10 disposals from him are more useful than the same fir Hannan AVB ANB ( different style of player admittedly ) and Bedford ( at this stage). Kossie is of course the pick of the smalls.

It might be a good idea if some posters just stopped every spreading rumor they come across, comes from a real reliable source, just another invisible internet site.

Rumors, spread by fools believed by idiots.

Totally agree.... Oliver is contracted to MFC and that's final... He is not going anywhere this year or next.. Get over it guys....

Interestingly, I have been keeping one eye on the Cripps situation for this very reason. For those who don’t know, Cripps partner has some serious health concerns and there is suggestions of heading home to WA to assist her.

If Cripps goes home, you can bet Carlton will have cash and will want the best ball winner they can find (Oliver)
 

If things go totally pear shaped and Clarry did walk, it would be him instigating it, not the MFC. It is not too hard to see that they could improve quite rapidly and accelerate past us. They have some elite big men and are not afraid to target big fish after years of picking up GWS off cuts.

Perhaps this is what prompted the panicked call to his management from Petracca?

If we all hope for changes in our midfield over the offseason to fix the balance and end up with 5 more years of Viney, but lose Clarry, I’m out. I can’t possibly accept that. I think we’ve all been a little concerned that missing finals could prompt a raid on our couple of top Enders.
 

This could be and likely is just be a beat up based on the McClure comments, or maybe Gary Lyon thinks we’d all be shocked if Brayshaw goes to Perth? I’d hardly call that a ‘bombshell’ though

Yes i am aware of Cripps partner situation, I believe she is battlibg some serious anxiety issues and is very homesick?.  Maybe that's what Garry Lyon is alluding too in terms of a trade bombshell going down.

It makes sense why Carlton are going hard for Oliver.

A Midfielder in his own class at a tender age  and is the engine room. A champion player for our club. You chase an Oliver and            of course why should anyone be surprised if a club asks the question.  He will always be  targeted by the top clubs.

To me it is all speculation and has a year on his contract run. i am sure the FD will deal with his next contract sooner rather than later..

Imo he seems happy enough and has the love of his mates and gives his all what more can you ask of him.   It is Oliver now next time it will be Petrac's turn   They are our future and  the club has a responsibility to make sure that they are in a good space.

I think every team involved would be upset with that trade.

Freo would be getting a 25 year old version of Fyfe, Carl replace Cripps with a younger version, and the MFC avoid the dreaded collection of pick 5-10s, and get an established gun of the competition for 3-5 years and a pick 8 or so for a decent kid. Not sure what better the club could do? Throw in Hogan? If it's picks, then Pick 8, future 8 and 22. Meh. Give me Fyfe for a few years and we might just have a premiership window that opens up for a few years. (With other obvious list improvements)

One of the gronky Facebook pages is reporting Oliver is disappointed with finishing 5th in the BnF and has therefore requested a trade.

Utter rubbish from the Member's End, but thought I'd put it out there anyway.

This is complete rubbish, as the rumour was around before the b&f

Can we seriously close this thread. Oliver is contracted and going nowhere. 

I feel your frustration but there is a chance of him leaving, so this thread will continue for a long time unfortunately

There's no way Oliver will be traded even if he wants out.

He's contracted and we'll rightfully ask for the world (like Essendon did with Daniher) and Carlton will give us bugger all in return.

It's next year I'm worried about, particularly if we miss finals.

As for Oliver being rumored to be upset about his 5th place finish in the B&F, perhaps he should undertake a bit of self-analysis and remember those woeful and lazy kicks that creeped into his game this year. The Richmond loss comes to mind when we had a run on with 2 minutes left and there were numerous other examples that would've cost him a couple of places on the leader board.

I think this is the real worry. I honestly do believe there is some restless players who want success and Oliver and Trac i feel would be one of those players.

If we don't make finals next year then Oliver will have every right to explore his options and would think he could potentially leave.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
