Player movement momentum with AFL agent Marty Pask
Play • 39 min

When a sports star switches clubs, many fans quickly forget that sport is a business. Especially for an athlete with a small opportunity to set themselves up for life. 

For the AFL especially, it's time to grow up. The league is behind the NRL and certainly US sports when it comes to the 'maturity' of handling player movements, says Marty Pask. 

Marty is Managing Director and Head of AFL at Kapital Sports Group, one of the AFL’s leading and most experienced player agents.

In his stable he’s got AFL stars like Dion Prestia, Dyson Heppell and Caleb Daniel along with young guns like Zak Butters, Issac Quaynor, Jack Ginnivan and Jai Newcombe.

In this exclusive chat with Tredders and Dion on The Big Deal, Marty talks openly and frankly about some wide ranging topics including:

  • His interest in a proposed mid-season trade period
  • The AFL’s need to mature regarding player movements and free agency announcements
  • The AFL’s first $2m player
  • The reputation of agents
  • The fallacy of the 'go home factor'
  • The very latest on Junior Rioli’s proposed switch to Port Adelaide

And much more.
