Can we stop talking about race and talk, this is a football forum, those talking crap about race just looking for an argument, everyone is sick of this BS. STFU.

I agree, but Bigfooty is rife with that kind of mentality though, (on both the positive and negative side)FFS is it too much to expect that race is not a factor in our reception of this kid?
He’s a talented forward who might make it, or might not. End of.
Either be excited, or keep the doubts limited to his ability like we would every other draftee.
Yeah agree.I know it’s a bit cliched but I love that type of footage. Just a massive outpouring of elation and relief. Kid realising a lifelong dream and a family massively proud of what he’s achieved. Great to see.
M LongDont really want to keep this line of discussion up - but - after the Eagles, the Swans probably have the best history of indigenous players in the AFL.

Do the clubs pay for that and is it included in the soft cap? The non-Victorian clubs and especially the northern clubs, would need to do this more often.Yes. Believe the club gives each player at the club a set number of visits per year for their families that they will pay for and of course the player/family can pay for more on top of that if they want.
The CBA makes reference to "the return economy flights allocated to parent/family travel in section 19.2 of the TPP Administration Manual" and while i can't find that document itself online, it strongly suggests family travel is included as part of Total Player Payments for players and thus not in the soft cap.Do the clubs pay for that and is it included in the soft cap?
