You put your hand up and then justify yourself in the next breath…
I’m sure a Gary would’ve conveyed more to Gold Coast than the general public yet Cochrane still responds like this in March this year…
Also you can’t compare Hogan and Francis to Ablett either.
Gold Coast chairman Tony Cochrane has told Gary Ablett he will under no circumstances be allowed to leave the club before his contract expires.
Speaking to Channel Nine on Thursday night, Cochrane said he had categorically told Ablett he will have to see out his contract until the end of the 2018 season.
“He’s a required player here and he’s very much part of the fabric of this club,” Cochrane said.
"Gary’s the real deal.
"I’m of the belief that he’ll want to be playing in '18 here because of our results in '17.
“Gary Ablett is a required player at the Gold Coast Suns, full stop.”
Asked if he was there was no circumstance in which he would allow Ablett to leave, Cochrane said: “Correct.”
So here is Cochrane talking about Gary wanting to stay after he saw Gold Coasts results in 2017… They could’ve won the premiership and Gary still would’ve wanted to be with his family.
I agree we don’t need to find an enemy, but in the same respect, I hope everyone here has a better boss and employer than Cochrane cause he is really something.
