I know from a players standpoint it would be unfair. If Im injured and dont know if I will ever be able to get another contract I dont want 2/3 of what I am owed, i want it all.
An uninjured player who is bought out can at least try to find another job.
We dont have enough tied up in Bouillon to warrant buying him out. he's good enough that we can just hope he returns.
As far as I know a player can only be on LTIR during the season. Once the season is over no one is on injured reserve, therefore it doesn't matter what the rule is. I could be wrong, but it seems like that's what I've read before.
