THE Crows and wantaway star Kurt Tippett have been charged by the AFL over draft and salary cap breaches.

The club, its chief executive Steven Trigg, former football operations manager John Reid and the out-of-contract Tippett were yesterday ordered by the AFL to front the Commission at a special hearing in Melbourne at 1pm on Monday.

Each faces two charges of engaging in conduct prejudicial to the draft and salary cap breaches.

If found guilty, the Crows face a massive fine and could be stripped of key draft picks, including selections at this year's national and pre-season drafts.

Key forward Tippett - who had a proposed trade to Sydney quashed by the AFL last month - faces suspension or deregistration after allegedly entering into a secret agreement with the Crows at the end of 2009.
