    Yes, the Pratt family have been very good to Carlton over the years. There was a bit of fuss re Chris Judd's very well paid work
    for Visy too. It's a grey area for sure, but from the player's perspective though, can you blame them?. These guys have got to eat
    and a lot of them are only an ACL away from unemployment.

    I'm sure the Swans have assessed his value and have compensated him fairly, within the structure of the salary cap.

    Before anyone starts a but... how are we going to keep or recruit . The club will have strategies in place, after all that's their job and what they're paid to do
    .
    How can we discuss and judge the worth of the deal of we don't have any details?

    I, for one, don't really care about the worth of the deal now that he's signed as

    1) the deal is done & we're stuck with it

    2) I trust our list managers - they have been pretty good for quite some time now

    3) I don't see how Sam's income is really anyone else business except his (I'll include his manager and anyone Sam chooses to share the information with), the Club's (for list management purposes and as the employer) & the AFL's (for salary cap purposes and contract ratification).

    It's not his teammates (that just potentially breed's jealousy, it's not the public's.

    With respect Barry, how would you like it if your income details were printed here on RWO - if your response is to state your income, which is easy to do with total anonymity, then perhaps substantiate it with a copy of your tax return so that it's known to be authentic.

    Now of course I don't want you to share your income details Barry! The point I'm trying to make is that it is personal information & my opinion is that the public don't have the right to expect to know it.

    I don't think anyone here really thinks they have a right to know the details of a players contract. It's more that rumoured player salary
    details are part of the discussion of a players value to the team, or their likelihood of coming to or leaving the team.

    That's a fair call

    That's exactly how it works now. CEOs sack staff and freeze their wages so they can increase profits and award themselves huge bonuses.

    I'd love to release my financials but I'm worried I might blow your mind.

    I agree we don't have any rights to know what players earn. But we get so engrossed in speculation, we lose sight of the fact the club is the final arbiter in what players earn.

    Can anyone declare what value is to be put on "paying overs" for Sam, when we are unaware of what value the club places on the individual.

    The only players we an really put a value are the draftees and rookies as they have fairly standard contracts, can anyone clarify what these are?

    We'd all love to know just how much you used to get paid to be an ANZ Ambassador
