Loan System for Players to Swap Clubs



Recommended Posts

the most hilarious thing about dimma's suggestion is that he didn't even know the name of the player - that's how low on the totem pole he is

plus i believe he was originally a queensland academy zone player in the first place?

gc17 wouldn't want to 'loan' some unproven kid as a stand-in ruckman anyway - they'd be more likely to target mabior chol as a player who CAN play ruck at afl level as already proven

Nonsense. The game has survived without player lending so why start now. Injuries are a part of football. The biggest problem with the game is that everyone wants to make changes to it all the time.

My MFCSS says this can only happen to the Demons.

If I played for Melbourne and was loaned to Collingwood, I would definitely kick the ball towards Melbourne’s goals and pass it to Melbourne players.

Not sure the EPL is a framework we want to replicate. They have had the same 6 clubs (at best) vying for the title since it's inception. That league has 10-14 teams that are systematically shut out of fighting for the title.

Our game can be professional and flourish without relying on transactional elements from overseas sports and their privately-owned teams.

Having a player play for you one week, then against you the next, is ludicrous and turns elite competition into a farce.

Fair points. But the VFL system has been gutted and ruined 

Will be interesting to see what happens

I like soccer loans for player development, but it's the world game with a pyramid league structure in numerous countries, the complete opposite to AFL really. 

Whilst it may help in some circumstances it'd generally cause more questions;

  • How does it work with the cap/player numbers ? - Are they just injury replacements?
  • Can they play their parent club?  - 
  • What happens if the parent club needs back - some loans have clauses for call backs, Can he play for 2 teams in same season?

If he is playing for 2 teams in 2 seasons they may as well institute a mid-season trade for professional players not just rookies. This again opens more questions, AFL should just confirm the mid-season rookie draft and let that be the issue. 

At the end of the day injuries happen and GC were given concessions for larger squads, relative tough luck.

What a crock. How do you barrack against your own player?

It'll be a term of the loan that the player won't play against their parent club. That's how it works in soccer. The loan player is too conflicted so their is a chance he won't play to potential although their was a famous case in the champions league about 20 years or so ago when Fernando Morientes was on loan to Monaco but ended up knocking his parent club, Real Madrid, out of the comp. Real were widely mocked for not inserting the clause.

Imagine if you loaned out a player that helped said side make finals over your own.

For instance a ruckman or KPP

You'd have the option to recall the player. No team would be expected to strenghten a direct rival at their own expense.

Scenario. What if we lend Daw to North. But Daw wont go and they want the Weid because although equal Jackson is picked for us and Weid is in the Ressies but asks to go to North for 4 weeks. Then in the 1st week Jackson is injured, so we have to play Daw because Weid is not there.

A lot of posters are over thinking this?

Parent club has a recall option and host club a return option. If at any point the loan is not working for either party for any reason the loan is terminated. 

In your example, if Jackson is injured we recall the Weid straight away.

Loans happen all the time in other sports. Absolutely no reason why they can't work in AFL. As long as the arrangement is mutually beneficial to both parties.

UEFA ignore these clauses nowadays, uncertain if they would back then. 
 

‘Both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations contain clear provisions which strictly forbid any club to exert, or attempt to exert, any influence whatsoever over the players that another club may (or may not) field in a match. It follows that any provision in a private contract between clubs which might function in such a way as to influence who a club fields in a match is null, void and unenforceable so far as UEFA is concerned.”

That’s what they said with Chelsea/Atletico situation about Courtois in 2014

Good idea. Especially in positions like the ruck. If all are injured there are no options for clubs. Loaning would give a guy a chance to play and develop rather than playing the lower level and help the injury impacted team

I think it's human nature that, when confronted with an idea that's new and radical, to have a knee jerk reaction of looking for possible faults/negatives and automatically rejecting the concept.

Having given this proposal some thought, I believe is is not without merit.  My two cents.

It's pretty common in football for a clause to be included that the player loaned out cannot play against them in a competitive game. 

We could've done the same thing with Frosty but insist he plays against us as part of any deal.

Correct. UEFA prohibits them but most national associations permit e.g. EPL. So a parent club could face a player they have loaned to a European club in a UEFA competition but not in domestic competition.

The AFL are free to set their own rules anyways

Most soccer leagues around the world permit as well as the EPL. Definitely all the European leagues

In the UK - Rugby league, rugby union and County Cricket.

It’s not done in the US other than in Ice Hockey.

The IPL have recently introduced a loan system.

Much rather see them encourage loyalty. Pay players extra pay, above the cap, for staying at the same club.

Clubs get extra funds for retention. So encourage more buy in, and development by the clubs, in the players. 

Will reduce poaching. 

Players with home sickness or emotional distresses can have a please explain. 

The fringe players will eventually get a go if good enough, or will be traded/delisted at the right time.

Manage their list better. Bad list management, such as Richmond can be fixed at the end of season.

Get someone from outside the AFL if they lose important structural players that can't be replaced. After a please explain to the AFL hierarchy. 

They want supporters loyalty, how about the hierarchy show some mutual obligation to us with player retentions.

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs.

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
