That's presumably been the plan for every transfer window since 2015.
I think all skepticism has been more than earned. That's totally fair. If I was a season ticket holder who had to either renew or decline by today, I'd most definitely give up my tickets.
But I'm also not going to pretend to "not understand" why the team would rather have 29-year-old Meara plus 400K in spending money. And I'm not going to lose my shit because that money hasn't been spent literally 20 minutes after announcing Robles' departure.
