Port Adelaide's Jarrod Lienert sys there have been plenty of other players who have found themselves in a similar situation to Crows star Rory Sloane in the past and calling for him to be sidelined until he can commit to the club is "a bit ridiculous."

The call came from former Port Adelaide great Chad Cornes, calling on Sloane to sign a new contract or face the last 7 weeks of the season watching from the bench. The headline grabbing comment hasn't been well receieved by members of the football world, some saying it's akin to blackmailing the player.
