Why remove buy back clauses? They're like release clauses.
But they are favouring big teams as in we get to sell a player and limit the potential upside the buyer has when it comes to selling the player for a higher price.
So while the small team also profits and gets a good player for less then they would have to buy in a straight buy it still is heavily favored for the big team i mean if it goes great and the player develops they win if the player completely flops they also win it s only when the player stays mediocre when the big team does not get the better of the deal.
I honestly think it s worse than co ownership deals for small teams. At least in co ownership the small teams can go to a blind auction and get good money, with a buy back there is no way the small team can profit as much if the player develops better than expected.
