Reading through the thread on poaching, the principle of "loyalty" came up. I see most individuals or bands viewing loyalty from only one direction, but not both. Now to be clear, when I speak of loyalty, I am speaking of a sense of duty or devotion. EX 1...a band sacks a long-term player who is not cutting it. The band is obviously not loyal to the player, right? If the player is loyal to the band, don't they step back if they know they are holding the group back? EX 2...a player leaves a band to play for a higher level group with more challenges. The player is obviously not loyal to the group. If the band is loyal to the player, don't they encourage them to move on to a better opportunity (rather than hold them back), and hopefully get them as a dep a tutor in the future? My point is, I think (in general) questioning loyalties is foolish as it should be a two way street. Thoughts?
