Also, here is some good Rookie insight posted by The Hairy Cat:
“At the start of a season, a club can nominate up to two veterans from its senior list for salary cap reasons. A veteran is a player of age of 30 as at September 30 in the current AFL season and has been on the primary list of the AFL club for at least 10 years.
If a team does not have a full quota of veterans, it can make up the balance by nominating rookies to be eligible for senior selection. The nominated rookie gets classified on the Tuesday before round one of the AFL season (i.e. today!) These players (known as nominated rookies) can play for the entire season.
Additionally, after round 11 clubs can nominate a “mid-season nominated” rookie. This rookie can play for the rest of the season regardless of how many players are on the clubs list.
Lastly, if a senior-listed player is moved onto the long-term injury (LTI) list a rookie-listed player can be temporarily elevated in his place, thus becoming eligible for senior selection while the senior player remains injured. The LTI must be a minimum of 8 weeks.
When the injured player returns to the primary list the replacement rookie returns to the rookie list as is no longer available for senior selection.
I believe all of the above is subject to total player payment (TPP) requirements.”
