The only differences between now and 2008 are that Ufa had clear warning that Radulov was preparing to run and there are agreements in place between the leagues now. I can't fault Ufa for exercising their rights to protect what they see as their player.

I do find it hilarious how many people were ranting how Radulov leaving with a year left was the most egregious thing ever but would now be perfectly content if he came back and did the same thing to Ufa. If it was wrong when he did it to us, it would be just as wrong if he did it to them.
I dont see it that way... I see it as him finally righting the wrong he did to us. I have zero symapthy for Ufa...
