Here’s something for you...example is $10m cap (salaries are fictional):

Franklin plays for $1.2M, available to others $8.8M
Franklin retires with $1.2 committed to TPP, available to others $8.8M

Rioli plays for $1M, available to others $9M
Rioli retires with $1M committed to TPP...******* bulls**t, Hawthorn can have the whole $10M!
Mick I am seriously worried for you?

How can you not understand the difference a free agency contract makes to this and why they are treated differently.

Only one I’m replying to on my limited data. A contract is a contract, regardless of whether it’s FA or not. A salary cap is a salary cap whether it’s FA or not. In your perfect world, we just have to suck it up because they are the rules relating to contracts and consequences of consolation picks right?

So smartarse, if they are the rules of salary caps, FA and all things AFL process, why are the AFL considering 1&2 to GC and compromising that exact thing?

A contract is a legal document, unvariable and fixed in stone. Whereas AFL policy....


Back to Swans talk in (Swans) media. Two really fabulous pieces on the club website that Swans people should read.

This is a great description of last Saturday's game which honestly is already one of my favourite Swans games


And this is something else. A beautiful reminder of how fabulous the Swans always are off the field even when the on-field form fluctuates.

Cheers BB but I think you’ve witnessed that contracts too are not worth the paper they’re written on theses days...sadly!

Please explain...you can call someone a racist and/or a dog with no repercussions on here and you’re complaining about Barrett?
Damien Barrett seems to have impunity when he umpugns other's names, acts on rumour. His rumour, which he stated as fact, that Papley was looking to move back to Victoria and that certain Vic team had already been talking to him, Carlton & Geelong, was absolute crap. Paps had quietly done a nice deal with the Swans until 2023. Barratt was stirring up dissent. He is a creep

It wasn't Barrett who started the rumour (he didn't even raise it) and Geelong weren't talking to him like you claim. Talk about "impugns one's name" and "acting on rumour"

The BarRat seems no friend of our Club. He uses a declamatory style bot unlike one or two posters.
Yep.. Barrett never seems to have anything positive to say about the Swans.. Even worse than him is cane cormes. An arrogant and negative person at the best of times, if he ever mentioned the Swans in the 'Round so far' spot on the AFL website, it was to say we're crap.
All understandable considering How Ports year went

Cornes is trying to be the Alan Jones of the AFL. Shock jock wannabe.

Give me Jimmy Bartel. Fair and informative. Really good at describing the different systems the clubs deploy on the field.

hahaha... I sometimes listen to Cornes on SEN on Friday mornings. He has an all about me segment called "Mean Tweets" where he reads out Tweets attacking him. It is lamer than a 3 legged dog.

He rarely mentions the Swans as he plays to his Victorian and Snowtown listeners.

Really in-depth analysis. Interesting stats on Swans use of the draft compared with other clubs, further down is a look at potential trades and drafts.

What a brilliant analysis. Cold hard facts & not just some picked out to make a one sided argument both for or against us.

It shows that we haven't been guessing our way through from the trade ban to the retirement of a group of experienced club legends.

We will bounce back quickly & will be the talking point of the Vic mafia again in 2021 when our young stars emerge top the top tier & once again, the Vic mafia will put our academy on the agenda again.

No journalist or member of the media has completed this thorough and detailed a piece of work on our club in memory. Fantastic piece.

Really good in-depth analysis. It's a sad statement on modern sports journalism when blogs like this and The Mongrel Punt have way better analysis than any "professional" outlets.

You say a 'contract is a contract', are you not aware that a free agency contract has different clauses in it to a standard player contract that have been designed by the AFL to protect the integrity of the free agency mechanism to change clubs?
