  1. The Elephant in the Room

    I like the clash strip. For jlt and aflx i dont care if they use it as the main jumper. It looks good. I will be getting5one for sure
  2. Are we ready? Rory Sloane

    I agree, i don't want to see players nominating cluba pre season personally. But the reality is the constant media speculation will grow and there is a push from some in the media 'imo to get the story first', to change this, it could happen.
  3. Are we ready? Rory Sloane

    Hello Demonland It's been in the media recently that Rory Sloane may be on the move - Graham Cornes increasingly concerned Rory Sloane will leave Adelaide at end of 2018 With increasing talk about Free Agency every year, and the predictable constant speculation from the AFL media and Social media, I pose a couple of question to this learned group. 1. Are we a chance of bidding for and landing Rory? 2. Is the AFL community ready for an AFL player to commit to a new club before they are officially out of contract? Would be a massive step. Would anyone be upset if Rory came out and said, I will give my all to Adelaide in 2018 but I am committing to Collingwood in 2019? Rather then the now standard contract on hold? Interesting discussion I think

    I'm going to miss listening to Finey get abused and getting upset after the games

  6. Port Closer than Dees to a Flag says Jack Watts

    What if we play Pert in the Grand Final?? Will there be some confused Demonlanders?
  7. Are we getting complacent?

    I blame Jack Watts
  8. Billy Hartung

    I can't believe I agree with @picket fence But if we trade JW and pick up Hartung then I will join @picket fence in the angry emails to the club
  9. Stewart Crameri to the Dees?

    No movement? Not surprised

    Yes that is correct But then there are clubs like GC17 or the Brissy Bears who can't seem to retain talent no matter their players contractual status. Schace is a prime example of the problem - Brisbane invest pick 2 and lose him for basically half the price in 2 years. That is not fair by any means. This is partly the club's problem but it is an AFL wide issue. Even Freo and WCE to a limited extent have the same issues about attracting and keeping talent. IMO the AFL players want their cake and to eat it too. What I mean is the AFLPA have looked at other sports ie: the NBA, NFL etc and have picked the best parts from their agreements and introduced them in to the AFL CBA. Now that's fine and dandy but it's not necessarily fair to the clubs. In the NBA players can be traded without consent and Free Agency doesn't have restrictions. My point is the AFLPA will keep pushing for more open Free Agency in the future, but it has to be fair, they cannot just choose the good and ignore the bad, like the ability for clubs to trade contracted players with one year left on their contracts because they know they will leave. If you look at player movement over the last few years, you will realise the AFL is heading towards a more open free agency model, but it needs to be balanced, and I personally think as Free agency is more accepted in AFL it is a priority for the AFL to get the balance right between the power of the player and the club

    Yep again 100% agree The new CBA was introduced to give all players a bigger slice of the pie, but as we are seeing more and more with the limited talent pool clubs are over paying young talent to stay rather then leave and redraft We are lucky in the AFL that we still have some form of loyalty, but I guarantee the AFL will go down the NRL path sooner then later. I would hate to see the AFL get like the NFL or NBA. But in saying that I would support the ability to sign players on restricted contracts. For example mid season you need a ruckman - why shouldn't you be able to go the VFL and sign X for 3 months? The more money in the sytem the more movement there will be as managers and players look to secure their futures

    I 100% agree mate The AFL know this is coming, but luckily for all of us, the PA and the AFL will work together for it to be fair to clubs and players Some also say the clubs should have the power to trade players in contract without their consent. As of the AFL rules right now a player through their agent can negotiate their next contract a year or two out, we've also seen players like Schace (apologies for the spelling) request trades..... Just because there are restrictions doesn't mean there isn't a form of Free Agency.

    You are 100% correct in your definitions @demonzz But to speed this up my point is it doesn't matter what restrictions are imposed by the AFL for the length of service - ie - Restricted and Unrestricted or uncontracted They are still all forms of Free Agency. The AFL knows they can't stop Free Agency, like the NBA as an example, but no one (Clubs, players, AFL, Supporters) want open slather like the NBA, hence the restrictions imposed No club wants players to leave after 2 or 3 years, but guess what we are seeing it more and more. And it is a real problem for certain clubs. There is going to be a time where the more literal definition of FA im referring to will happen

    So maybe you'd care to explain to the uneducated the difference between how an out of contract' player is able to move clubs compared to an 'restricted'' Free Agent then @demonzz I am all ears... or eyes in this occasion. You can call it whatever you want, classify the players in to different categories but no matter how you put it, It's Free Agency
