Disappointed Wangaratta president Tony Goodison has again called on the game's governing body to act after next year's salary cap restrictions forced the club to part company with coach Luke Morgan.
"We can't fit his coaching payments into a revised cap," Goodison implored.
"We've been advocating to AFL Victoria and AFL North East Border for the last two years, it's an obvious flaw, we believe he (Morgan) should have been treated as a non-playing coach and not be required to put his coaching salary in because it's penalising the clubs that are trying to do the right thing."

Fifty per cent of a playing coach's wage (up to $20,000) is included in the cap, but a non-playing coach's salary is exempt.
"If there was overwhelming evidence that the rule was wrong, it would be changed, but there hasn't been an overwhelming body of evidence to say that rule is wrong," AFLNEB region general manager John O'Donohue said.
