I did post this in the Des thread but in about 2 minutes it was 4 pages back! Ok its mainly about Des but more the question of if he should coach in 2012 and the implications basically this is what I wrote. I presume with things like that the player has only a limited amount of time to invoke the clause in their contract, so if say Player A is contract til 2016 and Des leaves in 2013, he can't use that clause in say 2015? Do we leave ourselves open for more pain if we let Des coach next year considering it leaves other clubs more room to move to get our players for 2013? If Des leaves immediately and those players have to activate that clause for the 2012 season, I can't see too many clubs have cap space to entice anyone, leave it another year and that situation could change significantly.
