Jay Clark Takes Us Deep Inside The Clayton Oliver Trade Story
Triple M Footy news breaker Jay Clark took us deep inside the story that broke during the week about Melbourne considering trading Clayton Oliver.
JAY CLARK GOES DEEP ON THE CLAYTON OLIVER STORY:
“Melbourne has been frustrated with some inconsistencies — his attitude, his professionalism, and preparation,” Jay said on Dead Set Legends.
“Now we have to also add a very big asterisk in a sense, because he has some personal issues, Clayton Oliver, that he has, over the past eight years, had a lot of support from the football club to try and overcome.
“They have wrapped their arms around him, and in one sense it’s an extraordinary achievement that he’s been able to hit the heights that he has.
“He’s on the of the best players in the competition, and on his day he’s just about the number one.”
Joey Montagna said that this moment could be the making of Oliver into an even better player.
“Think about the upside”, Joey said.
“If this is what his life’s been like off the field and he’s done what he’s done, imagine what he can get to… I think this is really positive for Melbourne if they could get a better version of Clayton Oliver for the next seven years.”
Jay said that eventually it was Alan Richardson, a huge advocate of Oliver’s, who was influential in the Demon champion’s decision to stay on.
“In the end it was Alan Richardson, who plays a role in Clayton Oliver’s life… Richo mows his lawns potentially, it’s that sort of level,” he said.
