What is the timeframe for having our list finalised?Eagles waiting on Rioli decision by the AFL , on moving Rioli to the rookie list for next season but until the Eagles know they are unsure about their delistings .....M Allen , Mutimer , Brayshaw , Brooksby and Smith ,
Ah Chee is set to be announced as the latest player to re-sign after being offered a one - year extension . Might be salary cap reasons moving Rioli to the Rookie list I assume on lower contract .
I wouldn't have thought that the Rioli situation would impact on Rookie listing decisions. Don't think we will be getting an outcome for Willie before Round 1 next year.
It's a joint ASADA/AFL Integrity Unit investigation and Willie's case will be heard an AFL anti-doping tribunal that will hear facts of the case from both Willie and ASADA before making a determination. After the AFL anti-doping tribunal reaches an outcome if either Willie or ASADA can appeal to Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland.Don't really understand this? Rioli's punishment is ASADA's call, not the AFL's. And his movement to the rookie list would be due to the fact he could be banned for up to 4 years, not because of salary cap.
Here is an excerpt from an article about the Sam Murray suspension:
"COLLINGWOOD’S Sam Murray fronted the AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal on Thursday, more than a year after a positive ASADA match-day test.
The 21-year old Pie has effectively served a 12-month provisional suspension. He is facing a four-year ban under current rules, but is hoping to mitigate that sanction significantly.
Members of the Tribunal will deliberate over the next two weeks before releasing their findings.
Murray played 13 matches for Collingwood last year. He remains on the Pies' rookie list.
He was tested by ASADA late July 2018 and stood down two weeks later."
