Rory Sloane has told Triple M he didn't pay too much attention to the media speculation about his future before re-signing with the Crows.
LISTEN TO SLOANE:
Sloane joined Triple M's Rush Hour with Rhett Biglands and Greg Blewett and said he understood the nature of the media meant there was pressure on his decision.
"I get that's the industry we're in," he told Triple M.
"People want to know sooner rather than later."
But he shut out most of the talk, explaining there was more at play than simply just staying or going.
"I understand the frustration the fans or media outlets, those sort of people, would have," he said.
"For me, there was more to it than just football.
"It's all the other stuff we had to get right and had to think about, and sometimes that's probably not thought about in our industry."
