Also it would be illegal for a player to play for free in the chsmpionship. There's min wages that need to be met, insurance etc.

Jackson Irvine is an important player to Hull. Incredible that they couldnt continue on the same terms for another 30 days.

Apparently players are entitled to a month of salary in July as an insurance for them while they look for a new club etc. The club was demanding the players basically play with that salary covering the games, so while they'd probably get around the technicality that it wouldn't be for free, it was still stripping a month's salary from the players.

Yes, Ive heard that all out of contract players get another months severance pay. Sounds like your owners were trying to get players to sign that right away and use that as their "pay" for July.
