Alastair Clarkson Salary:- Leigh Matthews, an ex-AFL coach, is “doubtful” of Hawthorn having a smooth transition as speculation grows by the end of 2022. Before the plan is executed, Sam Mitchell will take team leadership, and rumors have emerged that Alastair Clarkson is unhappy with the approach.
Mathews answered with his own statement after Caroline Wilson’s bombshell on Monday night, claiming a “mediation session” between Mitchell and Clarkson had gone wrong. Wilson stated that, although the transition is scheduled to take place at the end of the current season, he clearly desired ‘clean air’ without Clarkson by his side for the season 2022. Wilson hasn’t worked out.
The AFL teams anticipate the soft cap to grow by $200,000 to $400,000 according to clubs when the AFL finalizes their funding plan. Even though there were no decisions, foxfooty.com.au spoke to senior managers in six clubs who expected a small financial influx.
Aging claimed that Clarkson’s compensation for the coming year is nearly one million dollars in a story on Tuesday night, and if the club decided to fire it, the full payment of the club, as with many newly employed coaches, should not take six weeks for the full payment, is via the soft limit of the club.
But it is also suggested in the same research that the money not be paid in a lump sum, which allows clubs to distribute payments over many years to alleviate possible financial limitations in their clubs.
In a recent club executive meeting, a possible option to examine is the prospect of a 20 percent reduction in the salary of a top coach outside the soft cap.
On Tuesday night, the Age stated that Clarkson’s salary would be close to 1 million dollars over the next year and that, should the club be fired, he should be paid full – not a six-week payment, as provided for by several recently contracted coaches – in the soft cap that the club has at present at 1 million dollars.
However, the funds should not be paid immediately according to the same source, with teams being able to extend payouts over several years in order to alleviate possible financial problems.
Since Clarkson’s commitment to the HAWKs and his contract, which will expire at the end of the 2022 season, was maintained even before the Mitchell-Clarkson trade announcement.
A provision to pay a portion of the senior coach salary other than the football tax would ease the financial strain on the clubs that have been hit hardest by significant cutbacks in football personnel.
The Cats feel their coaching staff’s well-being has been endangered, while coach Adam Simpson from Eagles voiced their regret over Willi Rioli’s lack of support.
With the Covid 19 outbreak decreasing by 30 percent in 2020, clubs like Collingwood, Geelong, Fremantle, West Coast, and Richmond have pushed hard to reinstate the 2022 soft budget for at least one million dollars.
Others would prefer either no increase or modest increase in the cap, including North Melbourne, St Kilda, Gold Coast, Hawthorne, and Essendon. Somewhere in the center, the bulk of the other clubs.
