Adelaide could remove its reserves team from the SANFL, if the competition introduces a cap on AFL-listed players that can be fielded.

The Crows could look to join the VFL or NEAFL if the move from a number of existing SANFL clubs passes.

The SA Football Commission last year rejected a push to limit the amount of AFL-listed players to between 12 and 15 for both Adelaide and Port Adelaide's reserves sides, according to a report in The Advertiser.

But the SANFL wrote to both sides last week to declare the question of "competitive balance" was again on the agenda, as their annual review of their licence agreement began.

SANFL football chief Adam Kelly said the processs was continuing as usual.

"By the licence agreement," Kelly said, "there must be a review at the end of each season. That process has begun again."

A decision must be ruled by the end of October.
