What's So Bad About Chiefs Buying Only Free Agents?

There is a common criticism often fired at Kaizer Chiefs, and it goes something like this: "If Chiefs are the biggest club in South Africa, why do they only buy free agents?" Most supporters, including those of the Khosi Nation, do not doubt this, but the question is: is it necessarily a bad thing?

One of our supporters, Sthabzen92, believes that one must not be fooled by the smoke and mirrors of Chiefs buying free agents. It does not necessarily mean they are bad players, and, also, it may just make perfect business sense…

"Getting a player on a free doesn't mean he is not quality. You don't always have to break the bank, when you have players who do not cost millions but can still deliver for you. The sooner you stop comparing Chiefs to other teams the better, every team has their own manner in which they do business."

So maybe buying free agents is not such a crime after all. Maybe it's just the Chiefs way of doing things right now, with half an eye on running a good football team and half an eye on running a good business.

What do you think of this view? Do you think there is anything wrong with buying free agents? Does it mean that you compromise on quality?
