Bit weird that they get credited the senior game, someone might end up beating the simmo record of getting donuts for their first few games
Exactl, its ******* weird. Bloke who's never stepped on the field in anger could be a 10 game player.. or even a 50 game player if you were to take the scenario to the extreme!
I wonder what happens now with games-played clauses. Let’s say a player has an 18 game clause that would trigger a new contract but he only plays 15 games for the year and a further 3 games as a medical sub but he never actually needs to be used in those 3 games. His games played for the year would show as 18 games but he only played in 15. Seems a bit weird that that would trigger a new contract for the following year.And could make a kid ineligible to win the rising star, without playing a single game
Must be something to do with the fact that the player is getting full match payments, maybe the AFLPA would be up in arms if they are officially registered on the teams list for that match as a substitute but not paid etc.Why are they counting it as a game played if set player never plays a minute of game day?
Does he have a son?
seems the younger brigade don't have your outlook, moods........no question it was a dog act, f’ed aitken's career...........
