There's no "essentially" in a sim. I can see what you're saying, but when it's coupled with the actual responses that tell you where you stand, I think it becomes pretty clear, especially since there's no other parties involved in a draftee negotiation. You never have to guess if someone wants more money in this game.
So you think logically in real life, if a player says that "hmm I'm not sure if I want to go back to college or not", the GM will assume that throwing more money at the player would not affect the decision then?
How about you personally, if you were the player? A few extra hundred thousand wouldn't influence your decision at all?
It is far from clear that offering the player more money will have no effect. Clearly I did have to guess, because if it were the clear that offering more money wouldn't help, then the response the player would be something like: "this decision isn't about money, it's about whether I value playing pro ball or going back to college, and there is nothing you can do that will influence my decision, so please give me a week to decide".
