EARLIER:

Port Adelaide CEO Keith Thomas has slammed Geelong for flying over its coach and team leaders Joel Selwood and Jimmy Bartel to try to poach Power star Travis Boak.

Boak is out of contract at the end of the year and his future has been the subject of intense speculation.

"We respect the Geelong Football Club very much, but if Matthew Primus, Domenic Cassisi and Travis Boak were to bowl into Geelong to meet with Joel Selwood, I am sure Brian Cook, his players and supporters would feel more than a little disrespected," Thomas said in a club statement.

"Subtle conversations are one thing, but arriving with shiny buttons and a brass band is quite a different matter. We will keep talking to Travis and we remain very comfortable with where our discussions with him are placed."

Warren Tredrea has intimated for most of the year on Triple M that he believes Boak will stay, and believe this is the Cats' last desperate attempt to lure Boak east.
