#1357838 Kemar Lawrence wants out

Posted by MetroFanatic on 11 December 2019 - 02:03 PM

Kemar is absolutely right...

 

but he signed a contract.

I agree thats where the ambition part comes in though. If you want talented young players you have to pony up the $$$


As we did when we signed Jorgensen! It all adds up.




#1357724 Has the team ever been booed on opening day?

That roster got us to the playoffs.

That roster was only the 5th time in 24 seasons that we did not make the final 8.




#1357554 2019 Re-Entry Draft

Posted by MetroFanatic on 04 December 2019 - 09:23 AM

So he saw what they did for Luis, and got a handshake from them that gives him virtual free agency?   He works out a deal somewhere, and RB lets him go?

Pretty much. This way, we keep his MLS rights. If he was taken in the re-entry draft, another team would. For example, let's say BWP wants to stay in MLS and play for... LA, but DC takes him in the draft. So LA would have to negotiate with DC. By pulling out, LA would have to negotiate with Metro. Clearly, Metro would not be a dick to LA in this scenario, but DC might.

 

Obviously, he can still go anywhere else in the world, no strings attached.

So this is interesting... players who are withdrawn are usually re-signed (unlikely) or are traded (since we now own his rights). Maybe this was a chance for BWP to control his destiny, with RBNY's help.




#1357492 Official: Robles to Miami

Are you looking to sign another lock down outside back with that 50th pick?

 

;-)

 

agree nice move by Hamlett.  Ali would not make that move - probably would think about how many pair of pants he could trade that pick for.

Not 50th pick. 50K in GAM/TAM, whatever. It all adds up.

"As we got toward the end, Denis [Hamlett] called me, Chris [Armas] called me before the day that they announced it and we talked about a bunch of different scenarios and none of those scenarios included me continuing to play for the team," Robles said.

"So at that point, I said 'thank you, I appreciate everything that you guys have allowed me to do. And if it's OK with you, I just ask that you don't explore too many other options in just letting me go. I thought Denis did me a solid by just letting me go because it was going to give me the best chance in deciding where I could go. I really was grateful to him."

 

So Hamlett did him a favor. Good move as a human. Bad move as a GM.

 

(Ali would have never made that mistake -- he is not human.)

We couldn't renew his contract and sell him to Miami for say, 100K?

 

Oh well, I'm not a GM... but apparently Hamlett isn't one either.

Glad he goes there, and not, for example, Chicago. No history with them.

WE DID!




#1357289 Kemar Lawrence wants out

Posted by MetroFanatic on 25 November 2019 - 08:09 PM

If this is the case (and I'd certainly bet that way) than for the good of the league Garber has to do everything in his power to force them to sell. This shit is barely tolerable in Bumblefuck markets let alone the largest market in the US.

The league stopped caring about us when the slavers ponied up money for the abortion across the river.

Why is everyone worried?

 

Buckmaster can play left back in a pinch.

(Via Franco Panzio) Dennis Hamlett "We're in a good position to bring players in to make our team stronger. ... If it has to be a young DP or DP, I'll make sure I go to my ownership group and make a strong case. We want to get back to the level we're accustomed to."

 

 

....We aren't getting anyone significant

"if it has to be"

 

It won't have to be.
