I THINK anytime you ask someone to offer up negative information, even just a general opinion, on another publicly, it's in bad taste. I find it immature, sophomoric, and sensational. It's trash.
It's not all that different than the NFL.com top 100, 'cept the ESPN poll focus' on the negative.
I've watched the first 1 or 2 top 100 series, and realized how much I didn't care. They have their opinions, I have mine, and theirs don't influence mine.
And, really, it has nothing to do with where Luck, or anyone else, appears on the list. I just find it all meaningless.
Click bait, if you will.
Unless the 'rating' is strictly based on actual numbers, it's meaningless. And even numbers lie from time to time.
Yah but at the end of the day the Colts are out that money unless the other team pays them. Not even talking cap, 20M down the drain because you traded a player, even for Irsay that sucks.
And if they do start allowing it, then there would probably be a legal battle over what kind of cap teams can legally take over, with a team (or an agent) claiming that teams should be able to "pay" cap fees for another team regardless of whether or not it belongs to the player being traded. Its a stupid legal back and forth that im sure the NFL wants nothing to do with.
Also I cant see the NFLPA allowing it to happen. That potentially takes away guaranteed money on every big name contract, as right now players like Luck, Stafford or Rodgers have peace of mind that they are going to be on a roster for the next 3 yrs. Take away the guaranteed cap hits with a 1 time payment (rather than 3-5), and it makes them easier to cut as soon as the next season. Never gonna happen.
