If you think 15 imports will just hang fire for a year because caridff is such a amazing place more fool you. Sorry to be a party pooper .. stay safe
But anyway, i'll make it clearer.... Nottingham have basically given their players 'letters of intent', so saying that ''yeah we might deem you good enough to sign when the time comes but we also might find something better in the mean time so we aren't going to offer you a firm contract''.
Whereas, the Devils.... ''If and when we get going, here's a definitive contract offer, we want you and you have a job''.
I know which scenario emits more professionalism, but you're a Panthers fan (although a lot of your posts on the Cage would suggest you actually aren't) so I understand you're going to have a bias just like I have.
