And the argument could be bolstered not only by the player's intention to play through injury, but also by the player's intention to obtain a contract offer by specifically not disclosing the injury.
Hmm, but Homer said the injury occurred in July which is after he signed the deal.

Also, Leighton disclosed the problem to the Flyers in July according to Homer and they told him to work on his strength/conditioning, then he came back to camp and got hurt, so I'm not sure how he was hiding it?

Of course, now I'm forced into the position of defending Leighton. Not good.
