    Good to see the Swans being inspired by the Roberto Luongo contract tbh
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Well it is a disgrace. It's blatant misuse of the allowance.

    God I hope the Jesinta Campbell rumour isn't true. She's too good for that.

    can't really blame him for wanting to wake up next to jesinta campbell in bondi as opposed to the stench of the drainage pipes on the parramatta river

    Really don't think the COLA is a big deal here. The changes to the Vets list have had a far greater impact in allowing the Swans the cash to go after Buddy and Tippet. COLA is worth 900 odd K and you can bet your bottom dollar the managers of most Swans players don't forget about the COLA. And I doubt Tippet or Buddy have moved for an extra 22K

    Of course it's a big deal. Without that allowance they can't get Franklin, simple as that. That's not what the allowance is for, it's for ensuring the players aren't worse off for living in Sydney.

    And there we go, AFL has all but confirmed they will turf the allowance if Franklin signs.

    I can only imagine Sydney will lose a number of players over the course of the next two to three seasons. They will be desperate to get another premiership either next year or the year after otherwise they'll have their eggs in in one basket.

    They absolutely can get him. Without the changes in the Vets list, I don't think they can get him.But I think without the COLA they still absolutely get him. The entire worth of the COLA is 900 odd K. Every single cent of that is not going to Buddy or Tippet.

    Of course they can't get him, don't be ridiculous. At least 450k, for arguments sake (it's more likely more) is going to Franklin. How can you say Franklin would've been happy to sign for Sydney for like 800k a year?

    How have you worked this number out. I've worked out that AFL salary cap for this year is $9,530,500. 10% of that is $953,050. So that's the COLA. There is absolutely no reason to assume that the money is not divided amongst the players. There are 44 Swans players on the list. So the number is $21,660 per player. 21,600 over 9 years is 194,950. Not 450K. It's easy to assume that Buddy still would be moving to Sydney if that $194K over 9 years wasn't there.

    And if you're saying that 450K of the annual COLA is going straight to Buddy, then well the Swans are probably in trouble for fraud, cause it's part of every Swans player's contract that they get their COLA money. It's also absurd to think your average manager wouldn't just do what I did and make sure their player gets that $21,660.

    You're being naive if you think that's how contracts work. How many of the currently contracted players have 9 year deals? They don't work like you're saying they do.
