The latest from the HUN below. I reckon the pies are trying it on but without written agreement how do you go about proving what was agreed? It’s the pies word against the doggies. I think it’ll be the AFL or the courts who’ll have to adjudicate.

Also, how does it work in practice? Would the doggies have a contract with Treloar for the full amount and a side agreement with the Pies for their contribution? Or just the one agreement involving the 3 parties? Could Treloars and his manager be the tie-breaker. Wouldn’t they have been privy to the negotiations?

Figures close to the standoff say the Dogs are adamant they will not be paying Treloar a cent more than a “watertight” five-year, $600,000-a-season contract agreed with the cast-off Magpies midfielder.

It would mean Treloar is still owed $300,000 a year — or $1.5 million — under the terms of his original Magpies contract.

But Collingwood insists the Bulldogs agreed to further negotiations over who would pay what to Treloar after the trade went through, which the Bulldogs absolutely dispute.

The Dogs are confident any money owed above and beyond Treloar’s new arrangement at the Whitten Oval is simply a matter for Collingwood.

The only concession the Western Bulldogs did offer Collingwood during the frantic final days of the trade period, one figure said, was an offer to front-end some of Treloar’s wages in his new contract to assist the Magpies with management of their salary cap.

But if Collingwood’s position is right, the Bulldogs effectively agreed to a trade for Treloar without knowing how much they would pay him.

The clubs agreed to the trade one minute before the AFL exchange period deadline.

But no paperwork outlining any financial details has been lodged with the AFL by either club.”

amateur hour.    Presuming Treloar is now signed up with the Dogs with a contract stating his salary from the Dogs and nothing else, then the problem is entirely C'woods in the absence of other evidence.  Treloar then sues C'wood for the balance of his entire contract and a wise judge rules in his favour but adds " I see you have been also paid by the Dogs and there must have been some agreement about the transfer, so I'll just deduct the sum the Dogs are paying from what C'wood owes Treloar".?

If there is no agreement and the financial details have not been lodged by the due date then the trade is null and void. Treloar stays at Coll and WB keep their picks and both clubs are heavily fined by the AFL. Easy.

A lot of "ifs" in that, but possible.

Absolutely incredible stuff. Has the potential to wreck one, or both clubs salary caps. The Pies have always looked bad in this but the dogs are looking very stupid as well, the contract should have been the first thing negotiated and terms written down. 

If one club is going down let it be Collingwood!

Western Bulldogs president Peter Gordon confident contract dispute with Collingwood over Adam Treloar will be resolved

Negotiations between the Western Bulldogs and Collingwood over Adam Treloar’s are continuing. Dogs president Peter Gordon reveals where the two clubs stand.

News Corp Australia Sports Newsroom
Western Bulldogs president Peter Gordon is confident “sensible heads will prevail” and the Adam Treloar contract dispute will be resolved – but he could not say when.

Three weeks after the trade for former Collingwood midfielder Treloar was completed, the wrangling over his salary continues between the Bulldogs and Magpies.

Gordon could not say when the contract haggling would be settled, but he was confident the two clubs could find a middle ground.

“When you have got clubs like Collingwood and the Bulldogs, we’ve got a very good relationship from the president down in each club, we understand each other’s problems … we will sort out the details with Collingwood in relation to that and we will all get on with our lives,” Gordon said on SEN.

“It’s not (resolved), but it will be because you have got two clubs that respect each other and a player that both clubs respect.

“He’s obviously already made a terrific contribution to Collingwood and we’ve got high expectations as well and a deal got done in extraordinary circumstances and sensible heads will prevail and we will do a deal … I’m sure it will be fine.”

Pressed on whether there was a deadline to have the stand-off resolved, Gordon said:

“(There’s) not a deadline that I’m aware of, obviously you’ve got to file contracts and other things in a timely way,” he said.

“I’m sure the AFL would understand in circumstances where it itself has struggled to get details out of TPPs and what the shift in player contracts and arrangements, including with the AFLPA and what the variable club funding model is going to be in a year when we’ve seen more tumultuous change than ever before.

“I’m sure that they appreciate the position that we’re in …. it will get sorted out.”

Surely if the AFL have signed off on this trade, there must be details of who pays what, somewhere.

If the AFL have sanctioned this they are even more of an amateur joke than I thought.

If it was us and the dogs in this deal the AFL would have stepped in long ago. But it’s the pies, one of the untouchable clubs with too many supporters to upset. Come on Gil a little spine please.

It was published last week that while trade details were usually required within (I think) 48 hours of the trade period closing the AFL had extended the timeframe for this deal indefinitely

Sick eggs dogs, Collingwood has done them over, no paperwork was lodged about financials, Collingwood should stick to there guns, the dog had to trade Dunkley it fit Adam in, but no they wanted to have their cake and eat it to. 

PS the saying you can't have your cake and eat it too, means once you eat your cake you no longer have it. I always wondered about that saying it made no sense, until I looked up the meaning of the saying.

AFL: "C'mon guys, get this deal over with. It's been days and days."

Eddie: "YOU'RE THE ONES WHO TOLD US WE WERE OVER AND TO CUT PLAYERS PRONTO OR ELSE. THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!"

AFL: *sigh* "Oh all right ... another week and that's it."

The saying should be "You can't eat your cake and still have it." Future language historians will condemn us for our shameful lack of clarity on this.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees.

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
