  1. Kouassi tears ACL… just give him back / void his contract. Out for 6 months then has to go through rehab then get match fit so add another 4-8 weeks. Oh hell no, simply give him back.

  2. what happens in a situation like this where the player is injured prior to playing for his new team? NER completely off the hook?

    what happened with Irving? He was a top prospect and even academy-tied and nobody wants him?
