Default Workers Requesting A Release

I have a handful of workers that are really upset right now for different reasons (not used enough, too many losses, etc.) and it got me thinking "What if they get so ticked off that they request a release from their contract?"

Here's how it would work...

Once they request the release you are presented with a couple options.

For Exclusive Contracts

1) Rip the contract up and give an unconditional release -- Worker is free to sign wherever and whenever they want. Since that worker is under a written deal and because they requested the release, you are not obligated to pay the worker the remainder of his salary.

2) Grant the request but only if they sign a 90-day "no compete" clause, or in this case 84-days because TEW has 28 days in each month. This prevents the worker from signing anywhere else for 84 days. During this period you must pay the worker the salary that they would have earned in those three months. This, of course, would only be available if the worker has more than three months remaining on their contract (otherwise they could just wait it out and sign elsewhere sooner).

3) Deny the request. Pretty simple. The release request is turned down and things stay as they are.

Non-Exclusive Contracts

Obviously can only accept or deny the request.

How would you guys feel about this?

I think it would add a touch of realism to the game. Especially the options of a no compete clause.

But the no compete clause should have some effect, too. Like overness dropping or something. Other than that, nice, little additions for a touch of realism.

no compete clause should also affect momentum

Yeah, that also came to mind, but when a worker isn't under a contract. He doesn't have momentum. Or should it be done so that if a worker was under a no compete clause, he can't get his momentum pass a certain level at his debut or something like that?

^Doesn't matter... whenever a new worker is hired their momentum is always F- or is that just in certain occasions?

#1 is exploitable. That would have to be addressed. If it doesn't immediately jump out at you as to why, think about this: You have a rubbish worker you inherited from the previous booker. You want to fire him but his contract is kinda heavy plus he has some kind of relationship or favor with the owner (see Bruce the Giant, Runaway Train, The Great Khali). What do you do? Quit using him for several shows til he demands a release. Problem solved, cost you ZERO.

I like the idea but thinking about it in a Cornellverse sense, it doesn't sound as useful as it would be in real world scenarios. Think about it. Most promotions in the Cornellverse rarely make changes to their roster as it is (touring promotions being an obvious exception). Three month no compete clause is enough to make most folks unemployable, especially if they miss the narrow window of a promotion hiring after a rise in size.

Perhaps it could depend on the worker's personality? For example, if they were a Jackass or an Egomaniac, they'd ask for a release as soon as, say, two months after their last appearance, but if it were somebody with a kinder personality, it could take for as long as a year after their last appearance for them to want a release.

Actually, when a new worker is hired, he doesn't HAVE momentum. Sure, it's listed as being "F-", but in reality it doesn't exist. His mometum is calculated from his first official appearance in the company. So, if he does a debut angle which scores A, his momentum will be around B+ - A.

While this my seem like a good stipulation game-wise, it would detract realism from the feature. If you think about this completely fantasy example, if Triple H were to debut in TNA, regardless of whether he'd been out of the ring for ten days or ten years, the fans would go wild and his 'momentum' would shoot up. A popularity decrease is the way to go, in my opinion.
