what's everyone's take on that?

Personally, I'd be all for it, especially if there was some way to force the team to put some percentage of it back into the team, or straight against the team's debt, etc.

I'm very against it. It's necessary in soccer just because there are so many leagues all over the world. It would just make the problems with money in this league worse.

With soccer, it results in some teams (West Ham) becoming nothing more than feeder teams for the bigger clubs.

You don't have drafts in football. And every player is an UFA the second his contract expires, at all ages.

The NHL has them, just not so literally. They're called salary dumps(see the Kovalev deal).

I'm guessing you mean soccer.

Were you talking to me? I don't see anything I said that would mean that soccer does have a draft.
