I wanna not go in with the same team that failed to bring home the Cup. Options are starting to run low.
Options were low to begin with. And what little existed has cost crazy money. You are successful by fielding a team that gets the most out of each $ spent...overpaying for UFAs is not the way to accomplish that.
(1) "Performance Bonuses" means any Bonuses set
forth in a Player's SPC, the payment of which is
contingent on the Player's achievement of some
agreed-upon benchmark(s) related to his
performance as a Player or his Club's performance
during a particular League Year.
(2) Performance Bonuses shall be allowable under this
Agreement only for:
(i) Players with Entry Level SPCs under
Art icle 9 of this Agreement;
(ii) Players aged 35 or older as of June
30 prior to the League Year in which the SPC is to
be effective, who have signed a one-year SPC for
that League Year; and
(iii) Players who are "400-plus game
Players" for pension purposes, and who: (i) in the
last year of their most recent SPC, spent 100 days or
more on the injured reserve list; and (ii) have signed
a one-year SPC for the current or upcoming League
As to paragraphs (C)(2)(ii) and (C)(2)(iii), such Players are not
limited in the length of an SPC they may sign, but in the event any
such Player signs an SPC with a term of longer than one (1) year,
the SPC shall not be permitted to contain Performance Bonuses.
No Players other than those falling into one of the above-
numerated categories set forth in this paragraph (C)(2) shall be
permitted to receive Performance Bonuses of any kind.
