It doesnt look good on a team to resign a guy to an obvious discount and turn around a few months later and ship him out. I think that would give other players the "will the same thing happen to me, even if I play well?" mentality. As JML played fantastically for us prior to his discussion, upon his return the spiral had already begun.
Please, you're making too much sense in this thread.
