This helps a little, article from last October



Tigers sign up 10 players to AFL deals

October 2, 2008 - 7:24PM

Richmond have sewn up 10 players, including vice-captain Chris Newman, for at least the 2009 AFL season.

Newman, 26, was the only one of the 10 aged over 25, with the other players to re-sign Kelvin Moore, Jack Riewoldt, Shane Edwards, Jay Schulz, Daniel Connors, Matthew White, Andrew Collins, Angus Graham and Jake King.

"We are investing long term in some sound talent and we are pleased that these players will be able to continue to grow and develop with the Richmond Football Club," football operations manager Craig Cameron, said.
Newman said the re-signings added to the optimism built by the Tigers' solid finish to the season.

"We are all really looking forward to next year, we finished the season very strongly by winning eight of our last 11 games," he said.

"We now have to build on those promising signs and consolidate our hard work."

The club plans to make further list changes after trade week.

Surely we didn't sign up Schulz for next year

Well as the new Football Department Manager Craig Cameron said last year, ******* was part of all this young talent that was going to take Richmond places.
Looks like he's got a bit of egg all over his face and Greg Miller can't take all the blame.

******* is with us until 2010, so too McMahon, so too King, the other players that were signed up I have no issues with.

Player contracts to me are an ABSOLUTE joke. There is absolutely NO incentive for players to perform. You get your base rate, plus extra's as set by the AFL or you get what the club thinks you're worth.

The Club is screwed from the very start, because the club must make a mandatory 93% in player payments of its Salary Cap. So if you have a bunch of total underachievers, they get paid NO MATTER WHAT. The Club can't fine them for playing poorly either.

So ******* being a case in point, did a bit last half last season, got another 2 years at probably around 150,000 a season, not bad dough to be a lazy ineffectual player, that turns up for training does the bare minimum and then on game might kick a goal, take the odd mark and god forbid actually make a tackle.

I've said for years, that the AFL player payment system is nothing short of a joke and the Salary Cap more, Brisbane Lions, Sydney Swan's, Gold Coast and Carlton being cases in point.

Re: Player Contracts Post 2009

I have long felt that the club should not offer long term contracts to any players. Effectively, we should put all players on 1 year contracts, which means that we have the freedom to delist or trade any player at the end of the season. Players will be rewarded for a good prior season and not get big bucks when they are underperforming. We would not get the farcical situation where we win the wooden spoon and players are paid at close to 100% of the salary cap. :eek:

The naysayers may say that we risk losing players in the PSD but realistically we could be able to use such threats of overpaid players to properly rebuild the list ;D

A one year contract for all players is not long enough as you will not be able to keep the better players (Deledio, Cotchin, Foley, Moore, Morton, Newman to name a few) at the club as they will be offered better deals elsewhere.
Sure give rookies and up and coming players a 1 year deals but give the Deledios etc... 2 years with a 1 year option.
5 year deals should never be considered.

And u guys go on about JON. At least he has the potential to be a key position forward and is improving.

King is now a liability to our list and if he gets another game it can only be bad news for the RFC as it means we r up **** creek.

These r the sort of decisions which make this club a laughing stock.

Yeah King has to go at the end of this year. I wonder if we can wangle it somehow. Poor List Mgt really given he has always been such a marginal player.

Mods I tried to search for the "old" list but can't find it. Is it possible to "sticky" this somewhere where it can be updated as contract situations change. Thanks.

They need to sign Riewoldt up quick smart.
To keep those hyenas from the Gold Coast away from him.

It looks like Tambling might be the only other one they`d be interested in out of that 2010 lot.

17 out of contract at the end of this year. I can see 4 there that should be signed up asap. The others will depend on how deep a cut they want to make this year.

Connors, Reiwoldt, Vickery, Tambling Post? What about Edwards and Polo - probably marginals but we'd get little compensation if at all, and we probably won't delist either.

That's 5 :)

Take out Bling at this stage of the season and that's the 4 I picked.

The others really will depend on how deep we feel we can cut this draft and still get quality.

They will probably stay, like it or not.

King, Simmonds, McMahon, Cousins, Tuck, White, Thomson, Hislop, Graham will probably all go before them. That's 9 names already.

What a disaster 2008 was with Thomson/Hislop.
