It's hard to feel bad for guys that are making tons of money to play a game, but they are human beings and being told you're no longer needed/wanted is a tough thing to swallow, especially when your alternative is to pick up your family and leave the place you called home for all of those years [in Luke's case].

I typically don't like to post stories like this since they seem to accomplish pretty much nothing, but its two of our most important acquisitions of the off-season so there you go!
