LEADING AFL player agent Marty Pask has called for the scrapping of compensation for clubs which lose free agents.

In the latest In The Game podcast with Damian Barrett, Pask also:

  • Refutes the notion that players had had all the power in the trade period, saying it was the clubs which still had a lopsided sway;
  • Expresses concern over the general media's handling of sensitive player issues;
  • Goes behind the scenes in how a trade is done; and
  • Tells of his fears for some players as they transition out of football.
