Kurt Tippett will miss the first half of season 2013 and has been fined $50,000 while Adelaide Football Club have been fined $300,000 and barred from the first two rounds of next year's draft for their roles in the highly-publicised salary cap and draft tampering saga which engulfed the club.

Tippett was officially given a 22-match ban, of which 11 games were suspended, and can't participate in the pre-season either.

The Crows won't be able to utilise a father-son selection next year either but may obtain picks from the first two rounds if they trade them in or receive compensation for the potential loss of a free agent.

Meanwhile, chief executive Steven Trigg has been banned for 12 months (six months suspended) from performing any AFL function or attended any league venue and fined $50,000 while football operations manager Phil Harper copped a six-month ban (four months suspended).

Harper's predecessor John Reid also received a 12-month ban (six months suspended).

The suspensions of Trigg, Harper and Reid are effective from January 1.

The AFL Commission reached their deliberations after a marathon meeting on Friday.
