Fans have a funny way of showing civic pride when their team loses or performs poorly despite having a high payroll: by burning their city to the ground. Even Canadians! If sports can rile our friendly neighbors to the north up to the point that they go all American, video games should reflect that. Plus, is there a better virtual contract negotiating tactic, when trying to pay a player less, than reminding them that their performance was so shitty it cause literal damage to the city?
