That's a very good observation that had never crossed my mind. I think supporters need to be putting it to Board members how strongly we feel about paying up to the cap limit. (It would still leave our spend some way behind other clubs I reckon.)

Would the SANFL look at a Mid-Season trade among SANFL Clubs without TRANSFER FEES so that players who are not getting a league game with their club transfer to a club where they may have a better chance of one.

We must look ahead and not behind and I am pretty sure that the AFL will be looking at a Mid - Season draft in the next few years.

SANFL need to get innovative to improve/equalize our competition and they need do it fast.

I think that's a great idea mikeme,
- show the AFL not only what should have been there first kind of mid season draft "one from within there own league, trading listed players amongst their own clubs". A great follow on benefit from doing that is to see us show them how well it works for both players/clubs and the competition to promote equalisation of the league..something the AFL has been banging on about for a decade and stuffing up. All for it without transfer fees!!!
Still can't believe the no compensation thing to the mid season draftees club...that is the other thing the AFL bang on about being great at isn't it..looking after grass roots footy!

From https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/sport/afl/more-news/midseason-draft-review-how-every-clubs-picks-are-faring/news-story/fba4c02f8eab49a72b3206bf62d67beb


"Essendon midfielder Will Snelling is building a powerful case to build to add to his single AFL game despite a mixed bag from the league’s mid-season draftees so far.

The Bombers are thrilled with Snelling’s progress and while he might have to continue knocking down the selection door they will hope they have a long-term prospect on their hands.

The Dons were miffed to miss out on SANFL ruckman Michael Knoll, with Sydney taking him three picks earlier as the Bombers tried to strengthen their ruck department.

But Snelling, a 176cm midfielder with elite endurance, last week put in another audition to add to the game he played for Port Adelaide in Round 1, 2016.

He picked up 29 possessions, 14 score involvements, 157 ranking points, ten tackles and six clearances in the win over Port Melbourne.

The previous week he had won seven clearances in a 142-ranking point performance, having played three games for Essendon and averaged 28 possessions, 7.3 tackles and 13 contested possessions.

In his last three games in the SANFL he recorded 17, 16 and 16 tackles as an elite running, hard-tackling midfielder.

Dodoro secured Snelling after he was delisted by Port Adelaide after three seasons and at 21 he has time on his hands.

“He’s one of those guys who thoroughly deserves a second chance. He’s worked so hard, and when you’ve got that attitude you give yourself the best chance,” Dodoro said.

“We’re always looking to bolster our midfield. He’s a high-endurance athlete. He’s probably going to come into the club and be our best athlete. He does a 16 (on the beep test) and he’s pretty quick.

“We just felt he was one of the premier players outside of the AFL at the moment … He’s a pro and his form stacks up.”
