#612 International Prospects Q. I keep getting the response “I don’t want to get booed out of the stadium”. What does this mean and how can I stop it?
  A. If you are receiving this response from an agent it means you are offering the player a contract that is too lucrative. The player has evaluated the offer and has reached the conclusion that he could never live up to it, which will disappoint the loyal fans of your club and result in him getting “booed out of the stadium”. Some suggestions to combat this kind of response: · Lower the overall value of the contract · Instead of offering a Major League deal try offering a Minor League deal or a Minor League deal w/ STI · Reduce the number of contract years · And/Or reduce the amount of the bonus that you are offering
#631 International Prospects Q. Why did an international prospect I was trying to sign go with another franchise without giving me a chance to increase my offer?
  A. When an international prospect receives his first offer, his negotiation timetable is outlined. This means that he will make a decision on which offer to accept no later than date X. As he receives offers during that timeframe, his chance of accepting an offer increases the closer he gets to date X. This means that the chance of him and his agent informing other franchises of better offers is higher earlier in the process. This varies from player to player, agent to agent. Some are more patient and will drag the negotiating cycle to the end. Others will be more impatient and accept an offer more quickly. Each negotiation is different, although most follow the same pattern of back and forth negotiating until a decision is made. Furthermore, when a player receives an offer that is significantly higher than his other offers on the table, this also increases his likelihood of making a quick signing.
#796 International Prospects Q. I just had an International free agent assigned and inactivated by the AI, why?
  A. If you have top flight International free agents pending assignment at the end of the season the AI will assign and inactivate these draft picks as long as you have the salary available and the roster spots.
