A VERY interesting article about salary cap manipulation. I had absolutely no idea that this existed. I always thought that the cap was the cap, but teams can actually raise or lower the cap. This sounds more like the soft cap of the NBA. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/writers/reuben_frank/03/01/cap.figures/index.html They use our good old Lions as an example: Matt Millen's incompetency strikes again. Do you think this is fair? Has anyone ever heard of this before? Are you surprised that the Lions are the worst in the league at this? Comments?
