what's great about this type of stuff is how it completely ignores reality. Carter was getting paid no matter what. Either in Philly, or another city of his choosing. that last part is a big deal, the Flyers essentially robbed him of control over his life for a decade by the actions they took.

It never ceases to amaze how people stop viewing athletes as normal human beings just because they're wealthy. It would be one thing if Carter was signed to a normal contract, but this is a completely different scenario.
