While PVL has said no cuts to salary cap in 2021 and onwards..

The AFL are wanting big cuts to cap.

And the AFLPA are saying you open your books
Before we agree to cut next year...

Hmmm interesting

Players demand AFL opens up its financial records before agreeing to further pay changes.

To expect 20% pay cut as a minimum for 2021

AFL has not historically disclosed details around its expenditure on areas including expansion clubs, executive salaries, AFLX, International Rules, eSports, travel and entertainment.

It has also refused to disclose how many staff it employs at its Docklands headquarters.

Victorian club bosses have also sought fuller financial disclosure from the AFL.

An AFL spokesperson said: “We are grateful for the support of all our players, coaches, umpires and officials in getting football back on June 11 and look forward to continuing to work with everyone across the industry as we navigate through the Covid-19 pandemic.”

The players’ union agreed to a review of the collective bargaining agreement as part of the emergency pay deal struck with the league in March.

Players have taken a 50 per cent wages reduction until the end of season 2020

The AFL is on the brink of securing a two-year extension of its television rights deal with Seven West Media at a reduced price but pay TV operator Foxtel is holding out for an even bigger discount.

Seven, which is controlled by billionaire Kerry Stokes, is aiming to save between $30 million and $40 million on its AFL rights bill this year based on a 22 to 23 per cent reduction in games played this season, sources said.

Foxtel, which contributed about $1.3 billion to the AFL deal in 2015, now believes it overpaid, sources said.



(well there you have it) FOX have said they overpaid on the AFL DEAL... yeah no shit ya did..
figures never added up, when the NRL was producing bigger numbers overall.

There is no doubt that the NRL has handled the C-19 event better than anyone else in sport in Australia. And most probably the world. Peter The Great has acted like a dictator but at different times in history a dictator is just what you need. This is one of those times.

I suspect the fact RL has the cash cow of SOO & internationals will hold them in good stead. And ironically it is a godsend they don't have the money sucking expansion clubs to support unlike Uncle Gilty's mob. The AFL is a one trick pony with only the domestic comp to generate money. A big negative at this time.

It seems RL will weather this storm ok. The jury is still out on the AFL.

The AFL do have income from many other sources though at levels the NRL don't - obviously this is a doubled edge sword when it comes to crowds but once crowds resume they do generate significantly more income - and also own signage and catering I believe - and sponsorship is apparently a higher etc. But totally agree around Vlandys and his handling of the crisis. I think in particular the NRL needed someone to sort them out in a dictatorial manner and he was indeed the right man for the job there. AFL didn't need such an approach I believe and had the luxury of being less risk adverse. Of course, the cards fell well for Vlandys and like I thought the response to this virus was well overblown. Had it gone the other way - and he and I were wrong - then he may have been cruxified or burnt at the stake - but I really think he had no option as to not plan for an early return and hope the virus thing blew over quicker than anticipated would have seen the NRL is very grave danger - as he, himself, stated at the very start. Got to love the balls on this man to be honest. don't think Gil could have done it if the AFL were in such a position.

As an aside, it is interesting to note most, if not all, commentary I have read on this about the NRL getting back first notes something along the lines of "for once the NRL pip the AFL" acknowledging that it is usually the AFL that is way in front. Thoughts? I can guess but.......

Well Frederico..................this is possibly your best post ever!!!!! Well done pal!! Mind you you're coming from a low base lololololololol!!!!!!!!

Most of what you said is correct. The only thing I would dispute is the commentary line. I think you'll find most people taking the 'for once NRL' thing are dead set fumble fans living in the bubble who are incapable of seeing the light. NRL folk know how the game is perceived in Melbourne and the desert states and just get on with it. Perception ain't reality Freddy boy!!!!

Gill sounds confident and not at all fazed by a delayed return of footy.
Coronavirus: better late than never for patient footy fans

AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan has a pointed message for critics who say his code has fallen behind the rival NRL, which is two weeks in front when it comes to returning to the field of play.

“How you start is a very small part of the story. It is how you finish­, in what shape on and off the field — that is more important and I am really bullish about how we are set up to get the season away,” he told The Weekend Australian.

The AFL will end three months of COVID-19 lockdown when the two “big guns”, Collingwood and Richmond, clash at the MCG on Thursday evening.

It will be exactly 14 days since the NRL season restarted under its brashly effective chairman Peter V’landys, who has received kudos for his forceful methods in getting rugby league back in action and enabling his code to generate huge TV ratings and fan interest.

His AFL counterpart Richard Goyder, a respected but reserved­ business leader who is also chairman of Qantas and Woodside, has been more circumspect but has worked forcefully behind the scenes with McLachlan to get the AFL back on the park.

Goyder plays a straight bat to the suggestion the AFL has been behind the eight ball. “Not at all,” he said, “I’m full of admiration for all sports that are getting back on the field,” adding there were enormous complexities for a competition with 18 teams across five states.

When asked if he sat down to watch the NRL’s return on television on May 28 with a hint of jealousy, Goyder said: “I watched a couple of old AFL games, actually. They were ripping games. But look, I’ve been pretty busy.”

"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

Gilty will deploy the AFL propaganda 101 dept as usual. Smoke & mirrors, obfuscation, outright lies!!!!! The bubble will pat each other on the back and nod in unison. The truth will never be told. Yep. Business as usual!!!!

In the meantime Gilty and the good 'ol boyos had better get onto the broadcast deal. This is no time to be chasing junior female staffers around fumblehouse. The game is burning money like it's Guy Fawkes night.

If he needs a hand there is a straight talking no BS guy in Sydney ready to go. He's called Peter The Great. He's not worried about perception or the look or the vibe. He just gets the job done. Gilty should pick up the phone and give the great man a call.
