One rule for Vic clubs, ,,, ?

Good luck to him for the rest of his life; if he's received good advice (family, agent, investment advisor) the money he's received will see him comfortably off while he does something that he actually enjoys.

A real outlier in terms of circumstances.

On social media they are saying no because he wasn't a free agent.
They just make it up as they go...When you consider what they did with Scully and is and Tippett and the Swans it would seem the fair outcome is that his contract value counts against the cap.

Perhaps serve as a warning against godfather style deals?

Hopefully Boyd lands on his feet and although I dont think much of him as a person i do wish him the best. It would be interesting to read the biographies in a few years from the Doggies premiership 22 as a few would have very interesting stories to tell about what has happened in the aftermath at the club
From reading the article this year will be at a reduced salary and the last 2 years will not count although I feel it should like others here but they will now be able to upgrade some of their existing contracts and they will be looking to spend some cash I think

Very curious to see where they pull that out of the AFL rules, given at first glance there's nothing covering it that I can see (admittedly a quick glance because I don't have time to read it thoroughly right right now).
