We're also talking about scenarios where players are often left in situations they didn't sign up for when the coach is fired or leaves and the rest of the team does too. It's like going to a school for a major and they get rid of it while you're there. This is especially true for Daly. If anything, he's the exact kind of situation where a waiver *should* be granted.
