    If it was front ended we wouldn't have this problem.

    If it wasn’t front ended, we might not have got him

    Missed too many games unfortunately and was seldom 100 per cent fit. Major disappointment with his body letting him down.

    Seems he only took a small percentage of the remaining contract when he retired so we don't have any residual in the 2019 cap according to Harley on SEN last night.

    Now that is very good news. Not only in regard to cap space but also, I assume, this means he will be off the list giving us a list space as well.

    Hmm that's interesting because I'm sure Harley said earlier this year after the retirement announcement that some of the payout would fall into next year's cap.

    Maybe they found a way to pay it all this year or convert it into a lifetime membership.

    Will the 2018 trading, drafting and list management thread be shut down in 2019? It’s 80% of the way to toppling this one!

    Kurt Tippett Statement - sydneyswans.com.au

    Interesting snippet regarding the intended rookie-listing of Tippett. This suggests that the club has remaining payment obligations to Tippett that they can't afford to bear in the 2018 salary cap.

    I don't really understand the rules around what part of a rookie contract is included in the salary cap. I presume none (if they are not playing). It does seem like a bit of a ruse to massage the salary cap by putting outstanding obligations outside the cap. That said, the Swans are not the only club taking advantage of this apparent loophole.
