Who are the AFL's million dollar men?
Matthew Lloyd has listed the six players in the AFL he’d pay more than $1 million a season.
It comes after it was revealed nine players – their identities not disclosed – earned seven-figure sums in 2017.
Speaking on Sportsday, Lloyd said there were six players he’d give million dollar contracts and listed them in order.
LISTEN TO THE FULL LIST
Lloyd had three criteria – playing ability, marketability and durability – that he considered.
Those players are:
- Alex Rance
- Dustin Martin
- Patrick Dangerfield
- Nat Fyfe
- Lance Franklin
- Eddie Betts
Surely Jeremy McGovern is on this list. Best intercept mark in the comp by a long way. Can play both ways and extremely durable.— Frank Lenzo (@ContactLenzo) February 22, 2018
That’s a lot of money for the one of those players that’s goes missing big time in finals— Hawker44 (@HAWKER44) February 22, 2018
Gonna be a lot of hate coming for betts but I see where he’s at there... I wouldn’t sign him now a mil a year nor buddy but both of past yes. Tom Lynch and Cameron I’d consider also micheal Hurley... and if betts is in he’s eyes now worth 1m then so is Joel Selwood— G A Я Y (@Gary89604394) February 22, 2018
