    Does anyone else find it irritating with the recent trend towards contract fuckups between athlete and sports team?

    examples:

    the nats can't sign their #1 pick
    MLB doesn't have rookie contract rules like the NBA/NHL therefore this shit happens all. the. time
    the devils clearly circumvent the salary cap rules and sign kovalchuk, after pronger et al were signed to similar deals
    the raptors are retarded when it comes to trying to get a guy in Matt Barnes, obviously didn't do their homework, deal falls apart

    I'm sure there are many other examples but what the fuck is going on lately with the teams/players/leagues?

    How come MLB is so retarded that they allow teams to lose their top 1st round picks and no cap on their contracts?

    The NFL has it best, in my opinion.

    Anyways, rant end.

    there should be no guaranteed contracts, you see it all the time, huge year on contract year then slowly slide once the big contract is signed

    if you arent living up to your contract, buh bye

    Which player picked first cant the Nats sign? Bryce Harper?

    I say we wait till Monday to determine that, whats going on is normal and most teams don't sign guys till right at the deadline, both sides trying to of course getting max value.
    Harper will sign it does him no good to play somewhere else for nothing, remember he is a Boras client.

    I do agree that the MLB draft needs to be updated and FIXED.
