Tom Boyd has retired :eek: citing lack of passion after mental and physical heath issues.

Contract payments reduced for 2019 and completely cancelled for 2020 and 2021
That'll make the Bulldogs an interesting player during trade week. Million dollars suddenly cleared off the books.

Don't Sydney have to carry Buddys contract in the Salary Cap even he retires?

Or is that different if the AFL club resides within the Victorian border.

What a joke that was! Is there any chance that the pressure resulting from the ridiculous contract contributed to this? If so, it's not a good idea to offer young players big money so early.

Not even a little bit suprised that the Bulldogs are getting a free pass for this, technically they won a Premiership because of the deal.... Sydney haven't but they are being held to his contract alot tighter

From memory the AFL specifically stipulated this with Buddy's contact. They were steaming that he didn't go to GWS. It's not a usual practice

At least he'll always have grand final day but what a shame his life & career has nosedived as it has. From being a No 1 pick and presumably on top of the world to hating the game within a few years

Maybe we should trade out the #1 pick after all?

Also Bulldogs... do you need a forward/ruck?.

Apparently it's to do with acquiring a player through trade, rather than free agency like Buddy was.

That's also if you believe the AFL will count Buddy's contract on the Swans cap after he retires, which I don't think they'll do, even though they said otherwise. Swans will cry they can't compete having $2 million tied up in a retired player and the AFL will let them off the hook.
