I really miss a function where I can speak more naturally to the players when they ask about a new contract. The answer-options almost never covers my reason for not starting a negotiation with the agent/players. The reason for me not wanting to grant them the new contract is often that the players want to include a "minimum fee release clause", which they have locked in. I would love if it would be possible to say to the player something like: "I think you deserve a new contract, but if you want it you have to remove the *PULL DOWN-MENU* from your demands" In the pull down-menu I suggest that we can tick multiple options, and only those demands that the players have locked in as non-negotiable or semi-negotiable. If the players refuse to change it - ok then. That's fair. But I think the players also should have the chance to change their mind if they actually want the new contract so badly. Maybe the further conversation could function a bit like the discussion before contract negotiations. That when I ask them to remove the *PULL-DOWN-MENU* from their demands, they can initially either -just say no -accept immediately because they think it is more important with a new contract - Negotiate: "Ok, that seems fair. I will remove the "minimum fee release clause", but then I want a big pay rise" When they just say no, we still should be able to negotiate: We could move on with promises if they say no. I could them try to tempt them with different promises: "If you agree to remove the minimum fee release clause, I would be prepared to offer you *PROMISES PULL DOWN MENU*. This would also be multiple options, and we could for instance offer a big pay rise. Then I think we should be able to fairly discuss what a big rise actually means, like we already can do when we accept to sell them to another club if a reasonable offer comes in. Further discussion about functionality needed, but this is a rough description of what I have in mind and really wish we could do in FM19. -
There are some strange interactions with free agents in this game. For example, as Red Wings GM, I wanted to sign Almquist. He wanted to be a regular player, but I decided to offer him "core status." Almquist is making less than $300,000 I believe in Sweden. Probably even lower. So I offer core. He demands over $3M. Too much. I don't offer it. The next week, I offer again, as a regular player. Now he only wants $1.4M or something. Deal. I've since since this several times It seems that the role you offer sets the player's demand as much as anything. It seems to me that a player's reputation should have more clout than my offer of the role. A player is only worth so much, regardless of how I intend to use him. This is a particularly frustrating dynamic when dealing with European free agents, who will only accept offers as "core players" and this demand twice what they're worth. Why would a European, making $175,000 in the Suisse league, demand $3.6M to play in the NHL when he's clearly only a 4th liner?
