Releasing Players

The previous system was flawed, as pointed out by (I think) Est1975 last year. For example:

Mutu has a remaining transfer budget of 157m and a wage budget of 15.7m.
He has Rob Green, valued at 61m (seriously) on a 1 year contract. To release him, Mutu would pay 6.1m and his wage budget would increase by 6.1m.
That gives me 150.9m transfer budget and 21.8m wage budget. Converting excess wages into transfer budget increases his transfer budget to 184.5m and his wage budget to 18.45.

Obviously releasing a player shouldn't increase your budget by (nearly) half his value.

The simple solution is to not put the wage money back into the budget. So releasing a player costs the players wages multiplied by the number of years left on the contract (plus an extra 10% to save me recalculating your budget).

So releasing Green would cost Mutu 6.7m. The only benefit would be freeing up a spot in the team for a replacement. It would also make it more beneficial to sell the player, even at a loss.

Does that seem fair?

IDK, probably. It's quite annoying being lumbered with other peoples retarded decisions, though.

It's unfortunate for those of you who have taken over from others, but I'm not sure what we can do about that.

This really should have been raised before people started bids and stuff. I'd say its too late to do anything this season. We can probably do this in the winter transfer window.

Could have a rule where you get say, 3 releases as a new manager under the old rules. Kinda selfish but I think it's fair.

I didn't think it increased his wage budget before you evened it all out. That's silly, he's not getting the money back, it's being paid.

I have no sig. If anybody would like to make me one, please inform me

Exactly, that's why I think we need to sort it out.

I don't think it's something that needs to wait until the winter window - it's just fixing an unforseen error.

But you could argue that people would have bid differently if the rules were different.

For example, I could really know where we stand with this cause it will effect how I bid for someone like Kolorov, who could flop and be stuck on a long term contract.
