Well, that's probably why Chetty making such a lengthy case for the trade shouldn't have happened. Either way, this issue needed to be sorted out because like I said, we've never had to deal with it before, and it was bound to come up sooner or later. And just the fact that dr0ppinL0adz planned on handling it by looking to move one player, while Chetty would have done it by moving 8 basically illustrates why we do need some kind of policy for dealing with moves that put you over the cap.
I exchanged some PM's with the commissioners in the other league, and one idea that was brainstormed was allowing a player to be cut, but limiting it to one player. That way, the team with no cap space really has to decide if the move is still worth it if they have to get rid of a $4 million player...and it prevents them from bleeding their roster by getting rid of special teamers and backups.
And in all honesty, if this plan had been mentioned from the beginning much of this back and forth could have been avoided. This was a pretty huge trade, so knowing that both sides were aware that it would cause a cap problem would have been helpful. Let's try to include this kind of stuff with the proposals in the future. It'll save us a lot of arguing.
Do you have what it takes to compete?
