Perhaps we can encourage Footy A2Z to update where the clubs are up to?
Which clubs can afford that sort of unnecessary cost in the forseeable future, not mine.Not sure this is the best place for this but it is clear now that the AFL aims to get the bulk of its recovery from slamming down the soft cap on AFL club football departments with an aggressive tax
Under the new tax, clubs that spend more than $500,000 over the cap on football spending would be slugged by a tax of 200 per cent for every dollar over that amount in the first year.www.theage.com.au
The implication is the that clubs won't spend over this amount due to the cap. I would also suggest that there will be a revisiting of the base distributions.
I'm not sure what the existing non-playing cap is but I'm guessing there will be at least $60M knocked out of the football department spend. It is hard to see any other area of the game that will suffer anywhere near such a hit
I think the idea is that all clubs will be forced to CUT costs on their football department considerably.Which clubs can afford that sort of unnecessary cost in the forseeable future, not mine.
