So how many years is it going to take us to have a salary cap of $5 million?
Whaaaaaaat?? :confused:

Great moves! Only a complete pesimist would argue the point.

Spell check please

Fortunately, people have been calling for our cap death for years and they've been wrong every time. I too thought we'd have cap woes this year. I was wrong. I'll probably be wrong again. I just am absolutely confused as to where the money is coming from.

My understanding is that under the new CBA, any cash over the cap affects the team's cap the following year. So, if a team spends a lot one year, they can spend less the following year and vice-versa. So, I'm just wondering where we are getting the money. I'm totally lost on the point.

ill find you the article, but i did see somewhere a great explanation on one of the news websites about how we are pulling this off and it actually makes a lot of sense.

I know how we are pulling it off this year, I just don't know how it affects us in the future. Ohh well. I don't care. I am just gonna take this one year at a time, there's no point in dwellling on what might happen in 4 years considering no one seems to have figured out the new CBA ... not even the owners.

Okay, back to the signings. Is any defense going to be able to stop us? Is any offense going to be able to beat us? Doubt it.

ONE THING, that I ABSOLUTELY must commend this coaching staff on is the fact that they looked at what went wrong last season and really made a big difference in the greatest area of doubt. We went from having ONE legitimate deep threat to having what might now be 4 deep threats. Congrats Gibbs and crew. Cheers Warpath!!!

Re: Your opinion on the Skins free agent moves so far?

cash over cap is league-based not team based from what i heard.

divide the 40-50mill we're over by 32 and it's not that bad (with over teams staying under).

the contracts are generally vet min (or near that) for 2 years and then the base bumps up. so these guys are 2.5-3.5mill of cap space in both of the first 2 years, with arch being 1.5-2.5 this year and 2.5-3.5 next year.
