End of an era

Note to all:

The Official Love Machine has finally moved on to my aunt's farm in the country, where it'll live out its remaining years providing other Love Machines with replacement parts. It was a good run.

Note to Doug:

I'm glad you asked. In convenient bullet point format:

-Only during offseason (~Jun-Aug) and January: “transfer windows”

-Sometimes loans within a country to a lower league are allowed outside windows

-New team is buying out remainder of player’s contract with current team. Then player and new team must agree to new contract

-This is always with player consent, so they can’t just ship your ass off to the Mariners like in MLB

-Sometimes contracts will have a fixed buyout price; otherwise it is whatever the teams agree to.

-In a cup competition (Champions League, etc.) player can only play for one team, even if he later transfers.

-Six months before a contract ends, a player can negotiate with other teams for a new contract after current contract ends.

-Once a contract is up, a player can sign with any team they want without owing the previous team anything

-MLS has a vastly different system since they claim all teams are a single entity for business purposes.

Beep Way too long for a beep beep. Beep.
Note to Brian:

For the life of me, I still can't figure out transfers, the Transfer Period, and player movement in general in European football. Any chance you can give me a primer?

Beep And I thought the Japanese baseball Posting System was weird Beep
