    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.

    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?

    Yes this is fair.

    No I have not heard of it before.

    I am not surprised the Lions are worst at this, the General Manager is bad beyond words.

    The best team with the Cap in Detroit are the Red Wings.

    They better double check. It sounds like the stuff that got the 49ers in trouble.
    Is this something other than he who has the most luxury boxes gets to spend the most?
