Re: What about the Sponsors poaching committed players with $$$
If a player has kept his end of the deal up to the present day, he should be allowed to leave if he chooses. Why? Because he also can be cut by that sponsor as well. Or benched... Unless you have a real contract to uphold a player should only be as obligated to the sponsor as much as the sponsor is obligated to them.
How many sponsors have had whisper conversations trying to add a guy to replace a starter on their team. When they are told no by the recruited player, their present day starter had no idea the talks even happen. What happens when the recruit says yes......
