THey of course are free to tell the FO this or that player does not fit with wich i want to do, please try to trade him for this or that player.
1 Ignoring him on the offense.
2 Running to the media to bash the player.
3 Sitting him just to spite him.
In short, running him out of town:
Is that acceptable?
In fact, isnt that COMPLETELY AGAINST your OWN TEAM interests?
I mean, if im a rival team Gm i will ONLY offer them Lowball offers for the player, knowing they want him out of town .
