OR to keep him, you have to cut other productive workers and let your competitor have them.

bye bye employee and you cant do a thing about it, even if you wanted to.

sounds fair doesnt it ... note sarcasm.

It doesn't sound fair that an employees rights are owned until he is 31 either. Or that one company can send him to another company whenever they get bored of him.

If its a free market, then lets have a real free market. No drafts, no RFAs, no restrictions on players right to move teams for more money. Lets see how well a team can "build" when it has no right to retain its young talent.

If people want to bring real world into pro-sports then lets have a real world situation. You can cry "free market" all you like, but cry for true free market or look like a hypocrit.
