MANSFIELD Eagles supporters will see some changes to player lists as a result of the introduction by the AFL Goulburn Murray Commission, of a Total Points Cap system for clubs in the region for the 2016 season.
Under the Total Points Cap system each player at a senior club is allocated a points value from a minimum of one to a maximum of six based on their last three years playing experience.
That individual points value is recorded against a player’s record in FootyWeb with the system calculating each week the senior team total which is required to fit under the club’s predetermined Total Points Cap.
The Goulburn Valley Football League (GVFL), Murray FL (MFL) and Kyabram District FNL (KDFNL) will support the introduction of a Total Points Cap in 2016.
The Picola District FNL are the only league affiliated to AFL Victoria which has rejected the program at this time, however, the commission is committed to working with the league and its clubs before the October 31 deadline for 2016 implementation.
Both the GVFL and KDFNL will both operate under a Total Points Cap of 45 for 2016 with the MFL operating under 46 in the first year.
