Nope. You don't have to be on the list in order to pay someone. If we'd established that he's not going to play, he'd be off the list.I'll play devil's advocate-
We're keeping Benny J on the list as part of a concussion agreement to pay out an agreed contact. Dere tis.
He is on the list for one reason and one reason only, we expect him to play.
You could however dispute our expectations...
