Transfer fees between A-League clubs need to come in and see how it works before we scarp the cap! The two should be able to complement itself. On extension transfer fees between A-league clubs and NPL clubs also need to come in. No point NPL clubs finding and developing talent when they end up getting peanuts for them to A-league clubs. In theory it should create a thiving ecosystem.
NPL clubs like to pay players under the table. Nothing stopping them from signing their talent up to professional contracts to protect their investment. A League clubs would have to pay a transfer fee to sign them.

I think the cap needs to be raised severely first before scrapped completely. A transfer system would definitely benefit the whole competition from top tier to bottom. That way NPL clubs can actually put that money to use in expanding their facilities, signing new players etc
