    **** sake, how do you not understand this? The existing players have cost of living in their contracts. In five years time those contracts don't exist any more. Then they will be able to give Franklin the entire 900k towards his yearly salary and deal with the players they need to contract with their primary cap.

    Players don't have contracts which have the same value year in and year out. Some are front ended, some are back ended, some are constant throughout.

    THEY ARE ONLY ABLE TO OFFER LANCE FRANKLIN 9 YEARS AT THAT VALUE DUE TO THE ALLOWANCE.

    Is that clear enough for you?

    I just don't agree with your thesis. I think Franklin is a restricted free agent who wants to live in Sydney. I think without the COLA he would still go there. I don't think the COLA is a major part in Buddy wanting to go there non is the reason why Sydney can get him. It plays a part no doubt, but I don't think it plays a big part. I think the Vets list rule changes in the last two seasons have played bigger parts in allowing Sydney to get Buddy and Tippet. I think Sydney can absolutely get him without the COLA. The 9 year deal might be a scam to allow Buddy to get all of the COLA CASH. It might also be a way to ensure the Hawks don't match the contract offer and they back themselves to manage their salary cap

    Why do the changes to the Vets list help them? They only have 5 vets next year (Goodes, Malceski,McVeigh, O'Keefe, LRT) so their total saving is about 550K - under the old agreement they would have had a third of Goodes, O'Keefe and LRT's salarys - maybe slightly less than 550K but nothing massive

    Yes but it was half the wage. So say Goodes and O'Keefe were on a million combined.

    That's 500k under the old system.

    Now it's what, 550k combined?

    last season they had 6 vets so it was 600K. not sure if they can add another one or not this off-season, but equally, unsure if their two vets under the old rules would have taken up 1 million combined anyway. I def think it's created some cash. Not enough to cancel out Buddy of course
