I am totally against non-guaranteed contracts, say what you want about the players' earning power but a contract is a contract. Unless of course you let the players have the same privilege and negociate when he wants and can leave when he wants?
A contract is a contract, the assumption is that the player lives up to his end. His end is not being lived up to (performance wise) in many cases. This idea of negotiating with no need to perform sucks!
