That's not Bard's fault and he should not be pilloried for calling attention to that. Or for holding the FO to the promises it made to him.

Felger is dead wrong. The front office is the source of the problem here, both for failing to adequately replace Bard, and for trying to get around their promises to him.

Unless you think the MANAGEMENT has no obligation whatsoever to the PLAYERS? Because that's what you're really saying if you say that Bard's the only one with any obligations here.
Short of paying them as outlined in their contract, and perhaps not putting them in physical danger? No. The management has no obligation whatsoever to the players.
