The rules would be the same for any employment contract. If both parties agree the contract can be renegotiated and some payout figure agreed upon.JimJessTorp said:What are the rules regarding contracts not yet complete and the contracted player leaving the game or moving to another club?
Say Buddy with a contract of 295 Years at $1mill per year (not too far from reality doesn't quite see out all 295 years. Are his team still going to have to pay him for the remaining part of his contract? Or do they get the $1mill per year back in the years after he leaves?
What if Buddy leaves his current team with 5 years to go on his contract and joins #lolnorf #bigfish #finally #whodathunkit #howmanykellyattempts? Does he join on a new contract of #lolnorfwarchest per year and does his old club get the $1mil back, or does his contract simply move to #lolnorf who then assume responsibility for the remainder?
Or does the AFL simply introduce a new #buddyrule and the Tiges are now responsible for paying him because #fargyou!
I hadn't thought of it like that. I'd heard that during the week and thought it was ridiculous, but you've just changed my mind. Thought it was the AFL again making the rules up on the fly but actually makes a lot of sense the way you mentioned it.The Big Richo said:Boyd's contract can be exited by mutual agreement with club and player because he was traded in.
Buddy Franklin's can't because he was a free agent which stops clubs creating nonsense free agency offers.
100% agree TigerFlag which is why I didn't come out with it.TigerFlag2017 said:Given the kid's health, maybe best just let this pass and keep it off the web.
