"I'm happy with my current contract", Impossible to plan for next season.

Recommended Posts

Greetings. 

  

    GW Howitzer, BHL: Well, it's day 65, season is drawing to an end.   On any kind of professional team, the GM would already have solid plans for the next season's lineup.

 

   We have 13 active lineup players on the last year of their contract, and only 2 are willing to negotiate a new contract.

So we have 11 players in our current lineup, whom will not negotiate, only saying: "I'm happy with my current contract".  

  As you all know: this could lead to an utter disaster for next season.  The problem is less severe in the GHL, as at least the player won't price himself off of the team, unless he's not a real keeper. If he's a real keeper, then the GM will sign him, and work the cap around that new salary.

But in the lower leagues: it's more difficult to plan and balance. 

 

   It's good not to just complain, but better to try and come-up with solutions along with the complaint. 

So how about a contract deadline day, by which the player must let management know his intentions. (EX: is he willing to negotiate, how much salary he wants, no chance, whatever.  Just let us know, or we'll cut-off the "extra benefits", from Irma, the team's masseuse. 

 

  How about day 37?  At the very latest: day 57.

 

Cheers, and hope you are all enjoying this cool game.

If I'm understanding correctly, the player's contract negotiation message will change after 37/57 days? I like it.

 

Just to add stuff, I've got some suggestions for the wording.

 

For a player that would have confirmed interest: "I'm quite pleased with the team, I hope that we can talk about an extension in the future!"

For might interest: "The team seems to be trending upwards, I'll have to think a little more before deciding whether I would like to talk about an extension."

For no interest: "I've enjoyed my time here, but unfortunately I think it will be time for me to part ways with this team."

 

edit: Could someone just let me know if frustrated players have their own reasons why they don't want to rejoin a team. I haven't had to deal with that yet, but I think it would be cool if they did.

I suppose its sort of like RL players not wanting to get distracted with contract negotiations during the season/playoffs. Our "season" is set up differently though, so the suggestions definitely make sense.

 

I really like the idea of the player hinting at his intended stance even before the 37/57 deadline as well! Stuff like this would make the game more realistic and add to the complexity of the game. In reality, every player would have his own way of negotiating.
