    pucko - I am afraid this league is about keeping the top 30 or so players happy and everyone else is along for the ride, regrettably. You can see it in the salary structures where there is 3 'guaranteed' spots for a player to make a living wage and everyone else is lucky to be there. I hate to be so...

  • I don't see how they can now say the schollys are not "salary" with this new structure. It is a benefit received for service rendered.
