That's how it works in the NFL - that's why the retirement probability is displayed, so you can take that into account.
Really? A player can sign a contract on Monday and retire on Tuesday (for example), and the team is on the hook for the bonus? I didn't know that.
Has this ever happened IRL?
Moonyham did not deserve a contract. Sign him for a one or two year deal or let him go and resign him back. Resigning him was a poor move. Let them test the market.
The only real life example hat closely resembles this Barry Sanders. A horrible front office and owner drove this guy right out of football, and i respect him very much for his decision.
"Sanders' retirement came somewhat unexpectedly and was a matter of controversy. Two years earlier, Sanders had renewed his contract with the Lions for $35.4 million over six years with an $11 million signing bonus. The Lions demanded that he return $5.5 million of the bonus."
With interest Sanders paid over six millon to leave football. Moonyham would get sued just the same. So would my back in 10. Luckly i do not even trust virtual entites with virtual money. I got beat for about 5 million like the lions. All three were clearly poor investments. Plain and simple.
