    If he has broken the terms of the contract, then I believe the Lions would argue that he is not entitled to his pay. Could go to court.

    Geez, absolutely no clarification as to what the incident entailed?

    What could it be?

    "If found guilty, the controversial Fevola is almost certain to have his $700,000-a-season deal torn up by the Lions." Is there truth to that?

    Is there any inkling at all as to what may have happened?

    The AFL warned him after the Brownlow incident. May be a case of Cousins Mk 2 for bringing the game into disrepute.

    I would imagine that if the police have been notified, then there's a good chance that the allegation is somewhat serious. Of course, it might be your typical "urinating in public" that tends to occur at this time of year but that's still fairly serious if it occurred at a family day. Let's just hope no cigarette machines were harmed.

    Re: Brendan Fevola #2

    I believe there's a standard clause of "bringing the club into disrepute" (or something similar) that allows termination without paying out of the clause. It's how we offloaded Hooper last year when he had a year to run on his contract.

    Is it wrong that while one part of me is furious, another part of me is slightly excited at the prospect of being able to get that cap space back?

    Re: Brendan Fevola #2

    I'd prefer he got his act together and played for us next season but it would certainly blow some oxygen into the salary cap and with it happening now plenty of time to sign everyone up.

    Re: Brendan Fevola #2

    Who could we buy with 700k per year for the next 2... maybe use a pre season draft pick that cost us nothing in terms of trades / picks. :D - what am i saying.....

    Even if he is sacked, his contract for the year 2011 is included in the salary cap.

    I wouldn't worry. You'll probably hear the term "Former Carlton player" more than "Brisbane Lions player" in the coming days.

    Remember this is nothing official but SEN are reporting that "Fevola allegedly flashed himself at the club's family day over the weekend."

    I fear Browndogs' "A comparison of player culture" thread is going to take a turn for the worse.

    I think it comes down to what he is physically paid. It might help Carltons salary cap as well if torn up.

    But I think we are a LONG way from talking about this stuff yet.
