    Yeah it would be for Fowler – as without her they’re not finals contenders.

    I reckon they are not the only club doing it, but they got found out.

    It makes you wonder just how much Fowler was earning in those years. Her salary was probably more than double the next highest paid professional netballer.

    Wow. So yes it looks obvious that JF was the highest paid athlete for Fever. But did the rest of the team take cuts? Surely with your fantasy netball expertise, you could work this out Ian? :good:

    Apart from Fowler and Bruce, the rest of the team really doesn’t stand out. I think whoever it was, they were just SO worried about getting Fowler and then keeping her.

    I agree, there seems to be a lack of transparency and accountability with this situation at Fever. Definitely expected more information from the club in regards to the consequences and steps taken

    Ha ha, just realised my headline can be taken a different way… should have said “docked premiership points for 2021′, not “docked 2021 premiership points”. Boy, that would have been harsh!!! :-)

    Interested to read this – I had assumed, clearly wrongly, that this sort of deal went on all the time and wasn’t included under the salary cap.

    Yeah, it’s a bit confusing. I think you are actually allowed in the salary cap a certain $$$ amount to spend on these things, but Fever went WAY over the limit.
