had a chat to him last year at the meet the recruits night. he seemed a bit anxious about the whole thing having not played much footy, but he seemed real genuine and wanted to give it his best go. also, he was an absolute unit back then too haha
Watching in the VFL is going to be an absolute joy!

Wonder if he is the reason for them letting Wrihght go. They could see him being that double forward tag team with Ben King once Day retires.
I think money would have been the main reason Wright was let go. Lack of aggression was probably the 2nd main reason

He is pretty much a best 22 player now and still with a lot of improvement left. I'd say anything under 550 a year is fairly comfortable
Total salary cap is 13.1million I think.

Guess we may get a little extra space for the extra list spots - so say 13.5million?? at a guess
Across 49 players on the list, that is an average of 270k per player

Don't think you can afford to be paying 500k to a guy like Wil Powell.

The below is my estimate - may be well off - but this it total 13.4million for a single 2021 season.

Obviously this is only 1 year and there will be many different structures, contracts ending, more rookies from year to year.

Will looked right at home after moving down back. Isn’t afraid to move it quick and take a risk with his decision making. Was quite reliable one-on-one and isn’t afraid to go back with the flight to intercept. Seemed to be much less prone to drifting out of games as well once he moved back. Loves the club too.

Good stuff.

Feel free to correct me, but aren't players on the rookie list paid outside of the cap?

We got 11 rookies. That's 1.1M (if rookie base is 100K) not counting against TPP. IMHO, Harbrow on 500K would be insane.

oh so they don't count under the salary cap?

Depends when Harbrow re-signed.


Oh but did he just re sign over the off season - then yeah - definitely not.
I was thinking he was on a contract from a few years ago when we were just handing them out

Anything above base rookie salary counts. So if e.g. rookie Murdoch would be on 250K and base rookie salary is 100K only 150K counts against TPP.
