I'm trying to think of one but I can't ever remember a contract being influenced by personal relationships of any kind to be honest.
Just as well for us because if someone sat in a Punt Road office and said "I dunno about this long term deal for Dustin, he's pretty close to his old man who is stuck in New Zealand, might not play his best footy because of that," then we might be a bit less happy right now.
This whole argument is cart before horse stuff to me though. It is pure speculation as to what his footy will look like until it happens.
I think it is a very slippery slope to start to use an employee's family life to make predictions about their capacity to do their job.
I recall hearing something about Treloar changing his mind to Pies from Tigers as Eddie gave his Girlfriend a job. Wonder if the job included Netball at Collingwood ?
I assume the Netball Team have a Salary Cap, wonder if this should be included in Collingwoods AFL Cap space if Treloars Partner was getting overs or additional promo work...
