Oliver Rumours on Footy Classified


dazzledavey36

Recommended Posts

Teams come knocking for Clayton every year, last time he was OOC North offered him a huge deal and he didn't even really consider it apparently. 

I think the frustration with the players is real though, i've heard that a few of our really important players are asking questions of the club about it's direction. 

I've always heard Goody isn't as well liked as it seems on the outside so could be really interesting times ahead.

Multiple threads, but will put it here too: Carlton made an approach to Melbourne about Oliver, it was obviously not even considered. The 'unhappy' part I think might be made up.

Interesting you only mention this know when a thread is created but never brought it up in  the trade threads??

I believe this, effort of the team seems pretty average this year

Yeah look i must admit watching the BnF tonight, you couldnt find a more flat and unhappy looking bunch of blokes..

Something doesn't feel right...

Noticed that straight away Dazz. Could also easily be the case with most of the other clubs. Imagine being stuck with the same blokes for 3months. Boys are over it.

I’m going to file this away with the ‘Petracca requests trade to Geelong’ rumours last preseason.  
 

 

The annoying thing will be that blokes like McClure aren't held accountable. They have the attitude of believing that if they throw enough mud, something will stick, and they'll use that as a way to suggest their sources are good. 

But, that's the nature of the beast these days. Not much we can do about it.

I gotta say, if I had been away from home for close to 3 months, missed out on finals and was forced to sit through a “best and fairest” in something akin to a country RSL, I’d be pretty flat as well...

If he was worried about the direction of the club why the [censored] would he go to carlton? This would make a lot more sense if he was linked to a top 4 team, but carlton have performed worse than us in every year of Clayton's career bar 2019 when they finished 3rd last above us. 

They were over the moon with their year this year and they finished 2 wins behind us in a year we are bitterly disappointed. The only reason he would to to carlton is for the cash but if cash is what he is after you would just take the 1.5 mil from the Roos.

They should be asking these questions and should be just as frustrated as we are. They should believe that this list should be achieving more than they have.

Hard to gauge anything from the Bluey I reckon. Looked like a super low key, casual, quick event and it was apparently held on Tuesday, so would have been the day some blokes were delisted and possibly some coaches fired, on top of missing finals. Plus, with TMac in the room sans MFC polo and the Bennell situation, would have been awkward in there I think.

I haven’t watched a second of the BnF video but I honestly believe there is a significant problem at the Club.  I was told earlier this week by a source that has proven to be impeccable in the past, that a Player late last week phoned his Manager to make an enquiry about the possibility of him getting a trade out of the Club despite having 2 more years to run. 

Robbie D’Orazio the Player Manager had to re-align the Player telling him that it was a ridiculous question given all the circumstances as a deal could not possibly get done. 

I queried my source as to whether he thought it was motivated by an unsettling 6 year, $10 mil deal from the Kangas and his reply was that he thought it was more about this Player wanting to get to a Club who he thought would give him a greater chance of regularly going real deep.

This might be a story that never re-surfaces, however, the Club would not want to miss, or just limp into the 8 next year, or else it might.

As goody mentioned we have changed our game plan quite a bit this year (no easy thing to do and some players struggle with learning new stuff i reckon).

We are much more defensive and the model requires all team buy in to maintain the zone.

Part of the defensive shift is much more defence with ball in hand, tempo footy. 

We are more systems focused than ever and so roles are super important.

A combination of learning new systems (which is hard at the best of times) and a model that does not leave much space for playing on instinct is hard yakka. 

Add in the hub, all the weird selection decisions and not making finals and you get a recipie for discontent.

And selling that system whilst also maintains morale and buy in AND being ruthless is a pretty tough ask for any coach.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
