List management mechanics with Jason Cripps The Big Deal - Australian Sports Business Podcast

    • Business

Jason Cripps is one of the most respected and successful list managers in the AFL.

He’s spent more than a decade in the role at Port Adelaide after a stint as assistant coach under Mark Williams and Matthew Primus and an injury-plagued playing career with St Kilda.

He’s fresh off securing the AFL’s 2021 number one draft pick, Jason Horne-Francis, in a bumper trade for the Power after just one season with North Melbourne.

In this week’s podcast, Jason talks about the mechanics of that deal and how recruiting teams avoid what he describes as the “busts” - a top 10 draft pick that fails to realise his potential.

You’ll be surprised at how many there are and how damaging they are to a team’s prospects.

He talks about the modern trend of recruiting free agents to avoid “bottoming out” and discusses whether clubs should be allowed to trade players against their will.

You’ll be surprised what the day to day life of list managers and recruiters look like.

Jason’s balancing one of the game’s most demanding schedules while keeping one eye on his health, just seven years after being incredibly fortunate to survive a serious heart attack.
