So, you’re in favor of limiting the ability of clubs to go above slot for difficult signs. Also, you think it’s unfair that a college senior who is not constrained by the draft cartel’s elimination of competition can get a better bonus than one who is constrained…but you’re not advocating that they do away with the artificial market constraint.
If college seniors who are not drafted can, even some of the time, command $125k bonuses, but college seniors drafted in the sixth round cannot…this is pretty strong evidence that the draft is forcing the seniors who are drafted to accept below-market bonuses.
We do believe in markets, in general, do we not?
But you’re right; it is unfair. But it’s the artificial messing with the market that creates the unfairness. The draft, like any price-fixing cartel, creates unfairness. But few are willing to even think about that, when the subject is a sports draft.
