Cardiff Appeal the BDAFL Points System

Undefeated competition leaders, Cardiff have lodged an appeal with AFL NSW/ACT against the BDAFL Community Club Sustainability Player Points Program (CCSPPP).

The Hawks, who have yet to taste defeat this year and sit atop the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition with a percentage of 263, claim they are disadvantaged by the CCSPPP.

2017 saw the BDAFL Board apply an Equalisation Policy of both Newcastle City and Terrigal Avoca, at the same time Cadiff acquired a number of new players including 2017 Elliott Davey Medallist, Tom Yensch and 2017 Coaches MVP winner, Marcus DeLeur. 

The Hawks ended up making the Grand Final losing to Terrigal Avoca by 9 points.

With the BDAFL expanding the Hunter Haval Black Diamond Cup competition to 11 teams in 2018 the Board adopted AFL NSW/ACT's CCSPPP which included each club having a Player Points Cap as well as a requirment to play a minimum number of 'Home Players' each match. The Board has stated the the Policy it adopted was not their preferred model but one they had to adopt under the AFL NSW/ACT regulations.

The Appeal Hearing will be held tonight on Sydney at 7.00pm.
