The AFL tells the Adelaide Crows not to discuss the Kurt Tippett saga in public until an investigation into potential 'draft tampering' is complete.

BRISBANE has not given up hope of snaring Kurt Tippett with the club contacting the AFL for an update on the ongoing drama surrounding the Queenslander.

The AFL is investigating the extra deals done between Adelaide and Tippett when the spearhead re-signed with the Crows in 2009.

Trade period finishes tomorrow and it is highly unlikely that Adelaide and Sydney - Tippett's club of choice - will reach an agreement before the deadline.

Crows' salary cap scandal

Brisbane tabled a rich, five-year deal to Tippett but was shunned along with the Gold Coast.

The Lions are waiting for the dust to settle on the investigation to decide their next move.

Given the complex and increasingly murky nature of the Tippett saga, Brisbane is keeping its distance.

But the Lions are keen to know the state-of-play.

Tippett can nominate for the pre-season draft in December when he can also name his price.

Only Sydney can meet his $1 million-a-season demands but Brisbane has plenty of room in its salary cap and have a selection in the draft ahead of Sydney.

It is understood Tippett remains committed to the Swans.

The Gold Coast have also declared that they would re-consider their options if Tippett was up for grabs again.

The Suns had said they had "moved on'' after being rejected by Tippett but Gold Coast football manager Marcus Ashcroft said the club may throw its hat back in the ring.

"We haven't discussed it," Ashcroft said on AFL Trade Radio today.

"It's a hypothetical that we haven't really given any thought to.

"(But) if things change down the track, I guess we need to have a conversation."
