From the end of the 2010 season, Team GWS has the right to select up to a dozen 17 year olds born in the January - April window (Jan-April 1993), with the option to relocate to Sydney for the 2011 season. The club also will have the option to trade some of this group to secure experienced AFL players from other clubs, consistent with the rule that applies to the Gold Coast FC.
 
2. 2011 NAB AFL Draft:
Team GWS to have Pick No.1 in each round.
Team GWS to have Picks 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15 in round one. Please note that these selections have priority over any other special assistance/priority selections which may be available to other clubs, as per the rule that applies to the Gold Coast FC for the 2010 Draft.
 
3. 2010 NAB Rookie Draft:
Team GWS to have Selections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
 
4. 2011 NAB Rookie Draft:

5. Zoned access:
Team GWS to have zoned access to up to 16 NSW players from southern NSW/ACT and all areas outside the current NSW scholarship region during the period covering the 2010 to 2013 national drafts.

Team GWS to be zoned players from the Northern Territory who will be draft eligible by the time of the 2011, 2012 and 2013 national drafts.
 
6. 2011 and 2012 post-season, AFL-listed player access:
Team GWS to have capacity to pre-list 10 players who had previously nominated for the AFL Draft, or were previously listed with an AFL club. If the club does not sign 10 players after the 2011 season, it can sign the balance of up to 10 players at the end of the 2012 season.

Team GWS to have capacity to sign up to 16 uncontracted players. Maximum of one player from other AFL clubs, unless a club agrees to trade more than one player to Team GWS. If the club does not sign 16 uncontracted players after the 2011 season, it can sign the balance of up to 16 players at the end of the 2012 season.
 
7. Incentive to other clubs trading with Team GWS in the 2011 and 2012 post-season:
Team GWS to be given access to four 17-year-olds born in the January to April 1994 window, with all players to be traded to other clubs. Selections will be allocated to Team GWS so the club can trade for established players, but the club will not have access to these 17-year-olds. If the four trades are not completed in the 2011 post-season, the balance of up to four trades may be used in the 2012 trading period.

Expanded list and increased salary cap:
Team GWS will also have an expanded list size and TPP allowance in the club’s initial time in the competition, through to 2019, as follows:

2012 - 44-50 senior list, nine rookies with $640,000 - $1m TPP extra allowance;
2013 - 44-50 senior list, nine rookies with $640,000 - $1m TPP extra allowance;
2014 - 44-50 senior list, nine rookies with $640,000 - $1m TPP extra allowance;
2015 - 44-48 senior list, nine rookies with $640k - $880k TPP extra allowance;
2016 - 42-46 senior list, nine rookies with $520k - $760k TPP extra allowance;
2017 - 40-44 senior list, nine rookies with $400k - $640k TPP extra allowance;
2018 - 38-42 senior list, nine rookies with $200k - $520k TPP extra allowance;
2019 - 38 senior list, nine rookies in line with other AFL clubs.

Compensation picks
Further, as part of the entry rules and in line with the rules that are in operation for the Gold Coast Football Club, Demetriou said the AFL Commission had again confirmed that any club that lost a player to the expansion side would be eligible for a compensation pick.
 
Compensation picks will be tradeable and can be used by clubs at any time within five years covering the period 2011 to 2015. First round compensation picks can not be until the 2012 draft onwards. Clubs will be required to nominate the year in which they plan to use the compensation pick before the first round of the Toyota AFL season in that particular year.
 
As per the rules with Gold Coast, the compensatory pick would be assessed around the player’s age (greater weighting for younger players), club contract ranking (greater weighting for club key players), on field performance (greater weighting for strong club best and fairest performance) and draft position if less than four years experience.
 
This ranking system will then determine if a club is eligible for a compensatory pick in one of five spots -- first round pick, end of first round pick, second round pick, end of second round pick or third round pick. Under the model, the round one, round two or round three picks would be taken immediately after the pick the club already has in that round in the draft that year.

Clubs face brave new trading world
By Matt Burgan | Tue 20 October, 2009

EXISTING AFL clubs will have to come to terms with a brave new world of trading and drafting with the introduction of the Greater Western Sydney team.

Under the concessions announced by the AFL on Tuesday, clubs could lose one uncontracted player but will get a compensation draft pick if they do.

Clubs will also have a chance to trade with Team GWS for four of the country's highest-rated 17-year-olds and be eligible to draft a second mature-aged rookie.

The clubs will also be swap NSW scholarship players to the 18th club or the Sydney Swans.

These are just some of the key decisions made by the AFL commission when the AFL released its GWS list development concessions and related rule changes on Tuesday in Melbourne.

Key changes affecting clubs:

Forced trading of 17 year olds born in 1994
From the end of the 2010 season, GWS has the right to select up to 12 x 17 year olds born in the January 1 to April 30 1993 window, with the option to relocate to Sydney for the 2011 season.

Further to this, the following season they can pick four 17-year-olds born between January 1 to April 30, 1994. But these youngsters must be traded to other AFL clubs.

Compensation picks
Any club that loses a player to GWS will be eligible for a compensation pick.

This is akin to when Fremantle entered the competition leading into 1995. Fremantle gained Todd Ridley (Essendon) and Stephen O'Reilly (Geelong). In return, the Dons gained Matthew Lloyd and the Cats selected Steven King.

Compensation picks will be tradeable and can be used by clubs at any time within five years from 2011 to 2015. First round compensation picks cannot be used until the 2012 draft onwards. Clubs will be required to nominate the year in which they plan to use the compensation pick before the first round of games that year.

As per the rules with Gold Coast, the compensatory picks will be assessed around the player's age (greater weighting for younger players), club contract ranking (greater weighting for a club's key players), on-field performance (greater weighting for strong club best and fairest performances) and draft position if the player has played less than four years.

This ranking system will then determine if a club is eligible for a compensatory pick in one of five spots - first round pick, end of first round pick, second round pick, end of second round pick or third round pick. Under the model, the round one, round two or round three picks would be taken immediately after the pick the club already has in that round in the draft that year.

Mature-aged rookies
AFL clubs can now select a second mature-aged rookie in this year's NAB AFL Rookie Draft, to be held in December. Previously, it could select just one. This rule will be in place until the end of 2012.

This will be a boost for mature-aged players in such competitions as the VFL, WAFL and SANFL striving to play at the highest level.

And it is expected that AFL clubs will look to boost its mature age stocks via the primary and rookie lists this year with the expansion of the competition on the horizon.

Although he was still rookie-age this year, Fremantle's Greg Broughton, 23, proved an outstanding bargain basement selection in his debut season. This will give hope to other Broughton types out there.

Other aspects of the new rookie rules include:

    * Any payment above the minimum payment for rookies to be included in the Total Player Payments (TPP).
    * This amendment to apply until the end of the 2012 season when the number of mature age rookies would reduce to the current level of one per club
    * That clubs have the right to retain rookie list players for three seasons without having to enter the draft, subject to the player being given the option of entering the NAB AFL Draft.

As announced in August, two other rules were brought in immediately. Clubs were able to trade rookies in the recent exchange period and in the upcoming NAB AFL Draft,

This resulted in one rookie being traded: Geelong's Shane Mumford crossing to the Sydney Swans in exchange for selection No.28.

And in the upcoming NAB AFL Draft, elevated rookies will be counted as a compulsory selection.

For example, Adelaide recently announced it had promoted Brodie Martin onto its senior list. He will now become Adelaide's last pick in the draft, even though he is already locked in. At the moment, the Crows have four live picks in the draft, although technically it has five selections (with one being used on Martin).

Clubs which have already signed NSW scholarship players will also be given the option of trading them to GWS or Sydney Swans. At the moment, there are 63 scholarship players on AFL lists.
