Even more important question to ask: why does it have to be with "regularity" in order for there to be valid speculation that he
waive his NTC? And, btw, it does appear to happen with pretty good regularity given the supposed certainty you're implying.
You should note that I'm not saying Briere will, or that I think he would (I would be surprised if either were true) waive his NTC, but that doesn't make assertions of absolute certainty that he would not exist in any sort of reality that we are living with. There is a wealth of observable instances where players allowed deals to go through.
Again, give me
Boyle and Richards waived them because TB at that time was becoming a joke that obviously wasn't going to be contending any time soon.
In no way does that situation apply whatsoever to Briere.
Again, give me solid reasons why he would voluntarily waive it. Unless you think the organization forcing him to waive it would be a good idea.
