    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 any (or many) of us actually want to know the exact salary details of our players but they do have a funny way of usually coming out via the press n the higher profile cases.

    And I think it is only natural that we will be intrigued by them given we are all working within a salary cap system and the challenges and opportunities this presents. And I think it's na´ve to think we won't speculate.

    I thought Sammy was gone purely out of economics but it's pretty much standard that happy players will stay for what they can get elsewhere and that good players can always get more elsewhere if they are dollar driven. It's why it's so much better if you can build your own list - look at the mess Collingwood are in with the likes of Mayne getting $500,000 a year.

    It's none of our business I know but I'd be surprised if Sammy was on much less than $700,000 a year for the remainder of his deal.

    The current agreement was finalised in June but as far as I am aware the full document has not yet been released (which probably means it has not yet been formally ratified). However in the details that are on the AFLPA site it says that the minimum rookie wage will increase to $71,500 in 2017, while the minimum wage for a first round draft pick will rise to $88,193 in 2017. Match payments also apply.

    Based on past agreements it is probably the case that draft picks below the first round are paid less than first round. And that second year draftees are paid more than first year.

    I recall some years ago I read that the Swans pay draftees above their minimum obligation in recognition of the high cost of living in Sydney (this was in addition to COLA). I have no idea if this is still the case.

    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Bit of generous rounding here. That would be just over $550,000 a season.

    Casboult and Tippett look like they're about to reap the rewards of the lack of key forwards in the market. Very good news for us as we might be able to offload him despite the fact that I think he's a ruckman, not a forward.

    Stadium Ambassadorial roles are usually honorary positions though there are some perks. With mine at the SCG I got a voucher (to the value of
    $15) each home game that is redeemable at one of the Brewongle "food" outlets, a 2011 members cap and a signed 10 by 8 photo of Isaac Heeney
    and Callum Sinclair singing along to "Sweet Caroline" during a quarter time break.

    If Barry's deal is as ordinary as yours KT at the SCG, then I reckon ANZ were ripping him off for years there clap:

    But knowing what bankers are like, I'm sure he got plenty of bonuses along the way!

    If someone offered to take his full salary off our salary cap I think we'd find that offer impossible to refuse but I don't think we are under any financial pressure to offload him, means any deal has to be a win for us and that we hold all the cards

    If these numbers are right then Sammy has taken significant unders to stay but you can understand why he would - happy personally having been on a good deal, financially secure already and very happy with his club environment. It's still good money but it's a great reflection on the environment that the club provides for players

    Sounds like a fair price.

    Bargain! KPF are the absolute hardest to draft so that price seems very reasonable and puts Sam in a very good light in helping keep the list together as he no doubt could have got much more in Melbourne given far less effective forwards Mayne and Vickery are on well publicised $500k/year.
