Free agency is a part of the game that’s brought interesting dynamics and if it wasn’t for the compensation pick debacles, it would be a more celebrated part of the game.

Their coverage is expected to end up roughly 10pm (AEDT).
Unlike most other events on the AFL calendar, you will not be able to watch the Brownlow count on Fox Footy.
There is only one option available to you if you can’t get to a television.
That option is the AFL Live Pass – which is only available on mobile devices – not desktop computers or smart TVs.
