3. NMC in only the second year of the deal, again the commitment seems odd when your dealing with the future captain?

4. Why have they decided already?

Why are they taking advice from out going players on the future of the team to begin with?
I don't think its a good idea to tell the media that the person you are negotiating a contract with is untouchable and on par with your other top talent.

For Sam to be given the C would mean that he has been kept from getting an A last year due to contract reasons. Im not sure I would believe that. Add to that the fact that Hall is Taylor made for a C on his jersey leaves me to doubt this rumor.

If its true though I wouldn't mind it one bit. Sam has proven a lot and I would rather he have it than Ference.
