Sorry Brian. Thankyou for your feedback on what was my first piece. Onward from here.

Why don't we have transfer fees in football in Australia?

G’day mattq, thank you for your engagement. With an increase in the salary cap expected with the incoming TV deals, and hopefully a further improvement with the new ownership model coming to the forefront of the AL, there is going to be more wiggle-room for the big clubs to spend more on wages. This obviously relies on the salary cap being upped.

I am excited to hear your article on this, I will be sure to engage in that. Thank you for your feedback on my first ever piece. With the abolishment of transfer fees though, could we see the bursting of the financial bubble that surrounds football? Clubs like Southampton for example are handed millions every window which allows them to spend money where merchandising etc doesn’t compare to the big boys?

Inter A-League transfers would benefit the likes of CCM, Wellington and Jets no? Getting reward for the players they are producing.

Thanks for your feedback Waz. You do create some good points and the $62million per year would be a huge loss to the game, even if it is halved. I guess that the issues surrounding this could be improved with restructuring to the salary cap and promotion and relegation. However these are arguments for another story.
