There is no doubt about it, the Melbourne media loves Ricky Nixon…. In fact, the major news outlets simply can't get enough of him! He was Australia's #1 Player Agent and many believe he still has the goods – In particular Travis Cloke.
Reports have come in today, suggesting that Ricky Nixon has emerged as a contract adviser for Travis Cloke's father, David.
The pair have met on numerous occasions, each time discussing Cloke's contract as the Collingwood spearhead agonises over staying at the Lexus Centre, or taking a $1 million-a-season deal at a rival club.
It's believed that Nixon has advised David Cloke on how to get the best deal for his son.
Nixon was banned from working as a player agent for two years in March last year, after an inappropriate relationship with a teenage girl, however he has revealed that he has helped both Cloke and several other player managers in recent months.
"I had a chat to David. I have caught up with him before, in fact I have caught up with several player agents to help them on difficult contracts. Clearly it is an important contract for both Travis and Collingwood."
It seems Nixon's still the #1 in the business and when his two year ban is lifted in March next year, I'm sure he will emerge as a big player once again.
