Gold Coast's draft rules explained
Fri 15 May, 2009

THE DRAFT rules for Gold Coast will be as follows:

1. 2009 NAB AFL Draft
Gold Coast to have the capacity to sign 12 x 17 year-olds born in the January – April window (January 1 to April 30, 1992).

2. 2009 NAB Rookie Draft
Gold Coast to have selections 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

3. 2010 NAB AFL Draft
Gold Coast to have first pick in each round
Gold Coast to have selections 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15 in round one

4. 2010 NAB Rookie Draft
Gold Coast to alternate Queensland priority selections with Brisbane Lions. Gold Coast to have first selection

5. Zoned access
Gold Coast to have zoned access to up to five Queensland players prior to each of 2010, 2011 and 2012 NAB AFL Drafts
Gold Coast to have zoned access to up to three Northern Territory players prior to the 2010 NAB AFL Draft

6. 2010 Post-season, AFL listed player access
Gold Coast to have capacity to pre-list 10 players who had previously nominated for the AFL Draft, or were previously listed with an AFL club.

Gold Coast to have capacity to sign up to 16 uncontracted players

Gold Coast would also have an expanded list size and TPP allowance in the club’s initial four years from 2011 to 2014, which would be as follows:

2011 – 48 senior list, nine rookies with $1m TPP extra allowance;
2012 – 46 senior list, nine rookies with $800k TPP extra allowance;
2013 – 42 senior list, nine rookies with $600k TPP extra allowance;
2014 – 40 senior list, nine rookies with $400k TPP extra allowance;
2015 – 38 senior list, nine rookies in line with other AFL clubs.

As part of the entry rules for the Gold Coast side, the AFL Commission resolved that any club that lost a player to the expansion side would be eligible for a compensation pick (after the entry of both Gold Coast and the second club to be based in Sydney).

Compensation picks will be tradeable and can be used by clubs at any time within five years. First round compensation picks cannot be used until the end of the first round in the 2010 and 2011 drafts. 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 Premiership Season in that particular year.

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), onfield 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.

Please find attached below an example of how the 2010 NAB AFL Draft would look, under these concession rules (indicative draft order before trading):

This I find interesting. The rule used to be that you had to be 18 before April 30 of the following year. If you are born in this Jan-April window under the present rules you would be eligible for the draft. Has the rule been changed to make these kids eligible to be picked up by GC17 but ineligible for 2009 draft?

If not,

Do GC17 get the first 12 they want and the rest go into the draft?
Is there going to be ordered picks for these kids but it hasn't been worked out yet?

Or something else?

Gold Coast sign Tas duo

GC17 have signed the first two of their 12 allowed 17 year olds.

Gold Coast sign Tas duo
By Chelsea Roffey 12:59 PM Tue 28 July, 2009

THE GOLD Coast has signed its first elite 17-year-olds, recruiting two Tasmanian junior footballers for its inaugural senior season.

Maverick Weller and Luke Russell, both from the Burnie Dockers, represented Tasmania in the 2009 NAB AFL Under-18 Championships and join the Gold Coast as two of the club’s eligible 17-year-olds that can be recruited to the club in 2010.

Under draft concessions, the club is able to recruit 12 players who turned 17 between January and April, 2009.

You're right the first time Jake. The kids with a birthdate of Jan-April 1992 are eligible to be picked up by GC17 this year (maximum of 12) but all are ineligible for the 2009 draft. Those that don't get signed up by GC17 this year will have to go into the 2010 draft which conveniently for GC17 is good for them as well as they have 9 picks in the top 15.

You'd feel a little dissapointed if you are Jan-April 1992 but not good enough to be top 12. If you miss out on the 12 this year you will be top age in 2010 and recruiters might pass on you for a younger kid (up to 15 months younger if the Jan-April 1993 kids WILL be available for anyone in 2010).

Maybe it will be balanced out by the fact that GC will be in mass recruitment mode in 2010, but maybe not.

To my knowledge West Sydney will have access to the Jan-April 1993 kids. The AFL's plan is to give GC17 the best of the 2010 draftees and West Sydney the best of 2011-12 draftees.

That's a fair whack out of the draft going by the 17 year olds available to GC17. Some what would have been top 20 picks this year (Matera, Toy,..).

Piers Flanagan
Jack Hutchins
Hayden Jolly
Alex Keath
Brandon Matera
Trent McKenzie
Luke Mitchell
Matt Shaw
Josh Toy
Blayne Wilson

Also in the mix
Vic Metro's Kieran Harper, Ben Jacobs, Tom Nicholls and Cameron O'Shea and Vic Country's Lucas Cook.

Seventeen-year-olds already signed
Maverick Weller
Luke Russell

GC17 have signed another two 17 year olds. 4 down, 8 to go.

TAC Cup players Matt Shaw (Dandenong Stingrays) and Western Jets midfielder Trent McKenzie have both joined the Gold Coast under the AFL’s rule permitting the club to sign 12 players born between January and April 1992.

GC17 have now signed up Joshua Toy from the Calder Cannons. He would have been a top 20 pick this year.

GC17 have already told David Swallow they will be selecting him in next year's draft (as a top 3 pick) and he'll join their VFL team in 2010.
