FA don't care about spending, and no reward needs to be there for a team efficiently spending money, because they will be in the best position to win and the reward will be there for them. This is not realistic for a player to go somewhere based off of a bonus like that.
as i said it doesn't have anythinbg to do with wha fa wants. it has everything to do with what makes sense for this league. name "team direction" is not the best one so just ignore it. we want to reward efficient spending. right? that's the question here
This is my point though. Why reward a team for efficient spending, since they are ALREADY receiving an award from it by having a good team for relatively cheap and can build on it towards a championship. Any teams close to the top of this list either already have the best teams and can and probably will in the next couple seasons, and they will also have more money to spend then others since they were diligent, thus rewarding them again. They don't need any more rewarding.
This is just being a good GM and is a requirement for doing well in the league. The best contracts will likely have the best team. The best team does not need to be rewarded multiple times.
