THE INCENTIVE for clubs to trade picks for draft points could be diminished, as the AFL reviews the 'loophole' that emerged in last year's exchange period.

Quote
However, northern clubs Greater Western Sydney, the Sydney Swans and Brisbane Lions all used the tactic of turning early picks into later selections that gave them more points to use on highly-touted academy players on draft night.

The AFL's player movement group, consisting of club and League personnel, recently discussed the issue, with concern growing that it gave too much power to a handful of clubs during the trade period.

It is understood one idea put forward to combat the practice of 'trading down' was that if clubs don't keep a pick in the round of the draft that the bid comes, they can still match the bid with their points but they will not get the 20 per cent discount.


My question is, if the Victorian clubs didn't like this, then why did they trade with the Swans, Giants and Lions?

IDIOTS!!!!!

because of prisoners dillema.

If none of the victorian clubs traded with them then they all benefit. However if one club breaks it and can trade its later picks for early ones then that club benefits more then if nobody traded


Melbourne did a great job moving up to pick 3 to get their boy Oliver.
