A good solution to the "players keep their contracts" issue, and the 50/50 issue, would be to:
- go to 50/50 very rapidly
- have no rollback of salaries
Allow one or two buyouts per team, and have buyouts costs come out of the owner's share.
IMO this is "fair" as some players are more deserving of their contracts than others, lol. I'd be surprised if it happens though.
That said, getting rid of Gomez would be bad for the tank :-;
Not every owner would be willing to spend on buying out contracts.
