I am not, nor have I ever been a fan of “holdouts” or “holdins”, I’m just not. Listen, if you’re under contract you should be a full participant in whatever required team practices etc there are, it’s just that simple! I’m tired of the not wanting to play because you feel you deserve more money or a contract extension. Listen, you have a contract, fulfill it… plain and simple, and until the league and teams start fining and penalizing these guys it’s just gonna get worse.
As far as I’m concerned, trade him now to the worst team in the league and set a precedent. And do it consistently until this nonsense ends.
