its a shame that 2 players with their talent are still sitting at home right now. This QO rule needs to be tweaked some IMHO...
not necessarily. This new system is just as new to the players and agents as it is to the teams. Hypothetically players of Drew and Morales caliber accept the Q.O. next year, and if teams don't want those guys back then the following year teams don't even extend the offer to those guys.
For the reasons that we don't like this system...I feel like it will work itself out in a year or two.
I agree hugh
it's time for the union 2 act like a union (perhaps they already have been)
and pressuse these border line players to accept the QO 2 keep the GM's honest
IMO this system is a lot fairer 4 the players than the old
I agree, it is a lot more fair. I'm sure some are complaining about it, and others will point to the Drew and Morales situation and say it's not player friendly....but like I said earlier once the market adjusts to this system players like them won't receive the Q.O.
No matter which way you slice it, any system is going to be unfair to someone. There will always be someone stuck in that inbetween. Perhaps there is a team with a Stephen Drew caliber player next year...they might not extend the offer, but if they really want to keep him around they might offer it anyways.
FOr these inbetween players the Q.O. could be a great tool for smaller market teams to hold onto a player for a year instead of signing them to 4.
