Have there been an absolute myriad of free agency signings/trades already this year? I mean, this is the first year I've really paid attention, but it just seems like every day we are hearing five or six more guys going to another team (the huge amount of posts from my man Canacuna back that up).
It's not just in football, either. Hockey, baseball, basketball - they all have huge amounts of migrating superstars, "drifter" players, and new prospects. I know the main motivator of money has a lot to do with it. Then there are the owners (Snyder, Steinbrenner, whoever owns the Rangers, Ainge) who are throwing the money around and setting a bad precedent for players. Will the small market teams and players be the only ones that actually attempt to build a team instead of following the dollar signs?
Does anything else think it's going to get increasingly difficult to determine a player's fantasy value in any sport if they keep switching to different teams every year? I think when a player goes from a good team to a bad team or goes from being "the man" to being another piece of the puzzle, it's hard to pinpoint their projected stats. At least when someone's been in a system for a long time, you pretty much know what you're going to get unless they have a major injury or someone else who determines their numbers leaves or gets hurt.
I'm hoping this creates some discussion - and not completely negative towards me!
