I really can't hate a guy for refusing to waive a clause he negotiated and or which most players give up certain other things to receive. I fault the team for allowing it as frequently as they do, but the player exercising his right is hardly as ridiculous as people seem to indicate.
This. The management should be more to blame for how this whole thing has worked itself out. They are handing out these NMC/NTC's at a ridiculous rate. Can't fault a player for using something that was given to him by the team just because they want to change their minds on his value to the club. I clearly remember a lot of people questioning the decision to give the clause to him originally, because there was no way he was going to stay at a high level of play for the entirety of the contract due to age, size, talent drop off, etc.
