With the AFL suspending its season in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, many are putting their ideas forward as to how the league should fix their financial issues.

After the AFL tried to put forward a 75% pay deduction for the players during the hiatus, the players wanted 50% of their usual pay and many are unhappy with the decision.

But cricket legend and St Kilda die-hard Shane Warne believes he has found the solution by way of a 'loan system' that will hopefully protect both parties while locked in the battle over salaries.

“‘You can have it all the AFL, but we want to be paid back in three years’ time in instalments.

“I hope that the players and Paul Marsh come together. It’s not about looking after their own it’s about coming together and we’ve all got to come together and say ‘what’s the goal.’ Then you work backwards from there.
