They could have just told the Sixers not to bowl him, like they did with NSW the last time he played this tournament. That was a joke as well, but it better then them not allowing him to play the final games.
The reasoning behind letting him play the next two games, I presume is to give the Sixers a chance to make the next round. Pretty sure CA get a percent of earnings if the Sixers make it through to the next round. Basically Watson earns them the extra cash and then comes home.
The boards complain when players sign up for all these leagues and become mercenaries. But when they can get some money from it is ok for them to treat the players like mercenaries. Love the double standards.
