Possibly. Or it might be a straight up error given that other articles suggest that dates and basic info haven’t been given to clubs yet… seemingly pending a new CBA?

But if that’s the case I have no idea what the trade webpage info is referring to, as it does seem to be intended for the 2022 off-season (despite the typos).

DISCUSSIONS are progressing in the development of the new AFLW Collective Bargaining Agreement, but the finish line is not yet in sight.

There has been enormous uncertainty for players and clubs alike of late, as the CBA between the AFL and AFLPA needs to be completed before the AFLW Sign and Trade Period can begin.

Expansion announcements up until this point (for example, Erin Phillips to Port Adelaide) have been commitments only – players are unable to sign contracts until the new pay deal is in place and trades (for example, Izzy Huntington to GWS) cannot be made.

While dates are yet to be finalised, clubs are still planning for a mid-June pre-season commencement, counting back from a season starting in the pre-finals bye round in the AFL (end of August).

It also means the NAB AFLW Draft will have to be held before that mid-June pre-season start.

Still waiting for a CBA with discussions “at a stand-still”. Going to be a lightning player movement period at this rate.

Does this mean that the AFL's special formula will be utilised today and we'll all know what picks we're losing and receiving by the end of the day?
It would makes sense to know what picks you have to trade with tomorrow.
