Lee Miller has been praised for the gesture that he's made that could save them money and even cost him a new contract.
A clause in the strikers contract, signed last summer, would have secured him a new contract if he had played x-amount of games. I the lead up to the Brentford game, with this amount approaching, Graham Kavanagh had considered leaving the striker out.
The 30-year-old came to him though, for the good of the squad, and asked to have that clause removed so he could continue to be involved and this has brought great praise from Kavanagh.
Carlisle boss Kavanagh told the News & Star: 'It was a huge gesture from Lee and shows he was sacrificing himself for the group and the club.
'There are difficult decisions to be taken at the moment and my first concern always has to be to protect the club.
'I knew that if the clause had been triggered, and then we didn't find ourselves in this division next season, it would have caused us problems.
'I didn't feel we could afford that to be the case at the moment and I explained this to Lee when I picked the team and he wasn't in it.
'I felt it better to be honest about it rather than be cloak-and-dagger. I said it might come to the stage where I had to be selective about the games I played him in.
'All credit to him - he then came in on Saturday morning and said if he was to take the clause out, would I be prepared to play him? I said that I would, all day long.'
This decision acted, and will continue to act, as a boost to the Cumbrians but such a gesture could end up costing him a contract for next season with Kavanagh confirming that he is undecided on who will or won't get offered new deals, including the Scottish striker.
Plenty could learn a thing or two from this gesture.
This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
