The Swans Chairman Richard Collis today warns that AFL will be dominated by clubs that spend the most of coaches. Apparently Collingwood has 10 full-time coaches. Just like the NRL, the AFL has a salary cap on players but no restriction on how much you can pay coaches. Why are playersâ€™ earnings restricted yet not that of coaches? Weâ€™ve seen in the Olympics how important coaches are. Doesnâ€™t the NRL pride itself on its salary cap evening out the competition? In reality it is only a partial salary cap until they include coaching staff.
