Giants chairman Tony Shepherd believes it’d be “worthwhile” revisiting the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) for Sydney-based clubs, claiming it’d not only help his club retain talent but also attract experienced AFL staffers.
And Shepherd says the Giants are working on a strategy with the AFL to help boost crowds at their Sydney-based home games, with their 2022 attendances “a long way off the pace”.
The Giants, again, are set to be active during the upcoming AFL exchange period, with several players, including Tim Taranto (Pick 2, 2016), Jacob Hopper (Pick 7, 2015), Tanner Bruhn (Pick 12, 2020) and Bobby Hill (Pick 24, 2018), linked to rival clubs.

“As things stand … I think we’re going to have around at this point 20 players locked and loaded to be traded,” Edmund said.
“Tim Taranto is on the radar at Collingwood as he is at Richmond.
“He’s set to make a decision on his future by the end of the week. GWS doing their exit interviews at the moment.
“He will meet Adam Kingsley. He was determined to meet whoever the new coach was going to be out of respect.
GWS will be without gun ball-winner Tim Taranto for Saturday’s match against Essendon, having experienced concussion symptoms late into the week.
The Giants confirmed on Friday that after further assessment Taranto would be ruled out of Round 21, despite being cleared by club doctors earlier in the week.
Taranto is understood to have trained throughout the week, however faced worrying signs on Friday.
The Giants have since made the decision to remove Taranto from their squad to face the Bombers, with Lachie Ash coming into Mark McVeigh’s lineup.
Ash’s reprieve comes after Stephen Coniglio, Jake Riccardi and Kieren Briggs were named as inclusions for Round 21.
Forward Xavier O’Halloran has been added to the club’s emergencies for the match after being omitted from last week’s squad.
