I was playing a game today in the champs ladder, I was the team with the lower TV so I was getting some petty cash during the inducements phase. When it was my turn, I was not able to buy anything, not from petty cash and not from my own bank. I was able to cycle through the inducements, and when I clicked the buttons for buying inducements, viewing either team, and even "Okay" to start the game, I could hear the click sound effect, but nothing happened.
So the game decided to deny me from taking inducements, and forced me to stay stuck on the inducements screen for the whole 2 minutes just waiting.
Maybe it's another bug from viewing the opponent's team during their inducement phase, which I did, but I exited to the inducements screen before they clicked "Okay", so I was not thrown out of their team view screen.
