I apologize for bumping this, but I figured it may be better here.

Yes, the contract falls under the 35+ clause. Assume the 2nd year or later in a multi year SPC. Again, assume the player refuses to retire as well, since that would make it easy.

The team assigns the player to the minors, and the player fails to report. The team then takes the necessary steps to void the contract per paragraph 14(b) of the SPC.

Would the salary count under 50.5.d.i.5, even though there is no valid SPC? I know 50.5.d.i.5 says "regardless of whether or where", but it also says "in which the SPC is to be effective". In this case, there would be NO effective SPC. If it said in which the SPC WAS to be effective, I wouldn't be asking this.

Would a team not do this under penalty of circumvention and just take their medicine?
