To be fair, wasn't that the AFL's strategy though?I am not a Gold Coast fan but I am getting sick of Victorian clubs acting like vultures towards Gold Coast players.
Give them enormous Draft hauls which fu** up the existing clubs - but then they'd get access to them eventually anyway as the salary cap bit?
The bigger issue thus far, is that when the tree has been shaken and players have left - they were going to the 'big clubs'.
So the beneficiaries were Gold Coast and GWS initially through the Draft, then the Essendon, Collingwood and Richmond.
Everyone in between is really who has been shafted by this - not Gold Coast.
