The difference between team options and buyout in your rules is a team option it's only available in specific years of certain contracts. If you want to buyout someone before he hits the team option, you have to follow the 75%, 50% rule.
Ok, so a TO isn't a get out of jail free card- there is still a cost. Got it!
Will add this to the rules sometime soon.
We'll need an easy way of tracking how long the original contract was in our spreadsheets. Having columns for my BYS, N, r variables would be an easy and relevant way to do this.
