Posts like these make me want to infract myself.
I award you no points whatsoever.

We got Engelland as an important contributor at near league minimum. Playing solid D and making it possible that we can pay significant salary to others. This is crucial. Bortuzzo can have the same role and has been excellent in that capacity this season.

He is the kind of player who is a valuable asset until he can demand a salary that says he isn't.
