Much more positive narrative after leaving than what's occurred over the last few years, where it's "they told me I wasnt wanted".Macca says it was him, not them:
“I was fighting with my heart and my head which is quite difficult. They were telling me ‘we don’t want you to go’ so telling them ‘no I have to’ was hard. I spoke with Kev (Walters) and had multiple meetings with him and other people from the Broncos. I had to put the emotion to one side. Kev understood that. When both sides say they want you and it’s up to you to make the call, that’s when it becomes difficult. I was tossing and turning over for a while. It wasn’t like the Broncos wanted me to leave and it wasn’t like I wanted out. It was one of those things that came about."
“The offer being three years and the Broncos being unable to look further down the track, I knew what was best for me and my family. I had some really hard sleepless night. Moments I was unsure about. It was really hard.”

“I know Hook (Griffin) well and I know what to expect. We’ve got a relationship where he tells me straight."
“(With Hunt) it’s just an understanding. That comes off the back of knowing each other since we were 11. I know what he is doing or when he wants something. He has a big role and expectations so I want to take pressure off him and get him to play his natural game.”
“It’s more so just getting out there and having a game. I’m going to get things wrong and plays wrong. I rather do that now than in a couple of weeks and get things wrong in games. It’s a good opportunity to play and blow my lungs and legs out and make a few mistakes. Cam has been a really big part of this club and is well liked by the boys and local people. He is going to be a big loss.”
Isnt that what we want though? The decision being difficult for the player to leave even though another team's offer is much more appealing?Don’t know why he found it so difficult to make a decision.
1yr V 3yr deal looks a no brainer to me regardless of any loyalty felt to us.

I would much prefer players being invested in the club rather than one who is willing to leave without a second thought even if it were a no brainer
Why do players always say the doing it for family line BS? What's wrong with just saying it was a better offer.
