    No he said he was playing State League 1.. (Well he hasn't really mentioned the AHL, but it doesnt seem like something to leave out).. Top league before it splits into different states of the country.

    What club you at mate?

    The ads are also for overgangsklasse.
    Do you have and idea in which area you want to play?
    What wishes do you have for study, work, housing, payment, etc. This is all relevant information that you need to share if you want people to show interest.

    If you dont play in australia's national league no one is going to give you 20,000 anything. There are several internationally capped players from good countries in the hoofdklasse who dont get that.

    Nothing! (unless your a national player) then you could probably contact a club and offer your services for a respectable amount. 20,000 is still alot of money!

    20k? Starting price?

    You might want to start by finding out the facts before demanding stuff.

    20,000 is fair enough. A lot of the internationals on holland get this much. The issue is that players who are not capped for their country dont get signed to play hoofdklasse. If you are not an international and you manage to get signed you are looking at half of that at absolute most. But the reality is if you are australian and you havent played in your country's national league and havent played in another top european league previously you will be lucky to get flights and accomodation.

    Good luck though, you never know if you never ask. Put yourself out there and see how you go.

    well you must have been talking to Aussie internationals.
    And for them - 20k is a starting price.

    I know that for a fact it wasnt an international player and his not an Aussie. Like I said I'm sorry if I offend you all I want to do is come over to play in either the hoofdklasse I know it a big ask but I believe I can play in that grade and make an impact I have the back from a Aussie player who did the something as I am trying to do. So if you can help me on finding a team in either hoofdklasse or overgangsklasse please let me.
