Melbourne vs Brisbane Lions results, video highlights, latest news; Richmond’s Tim Taranto, Jacob Hopper trade moves questioned by great


Richmond may have been bounced by the Lions last weekend, but they look set to be an absolute powerhouse next season.

The Tigers are reportedly set to offer wantaway Giants duo Tim Taranto and Jacob Hopper massive seven-year deals to lure them to Punt Road.

However, ex-Port Adelaide star Kane Cornes is worried about what the move means for the AFL’s hopes of having a level playing field.

”Is it good for the competition? That’s the question this morning,” Cornes said on SEN Breakfast.

“It’s not when a bottom-four team loses two gun midfielders to a team that’s won three of the last five premierships.

“The AFL must be going, ‘Our equalisation model is stuffed’, the salary cap, the draft, the soft cap on coaching spending, the fixture, is all designed to make the competition even where essentially every team’s got a shot to win it once every 18 years.

“That’s not happening, and it’s making a mockery of that whole issue that Richmond are going to sign Taranto and Hopper, who are 24 and 25 years of age from a team like GWS to a team that’s won three of the last five.”
