[QUOTE]Here is an interesting article from today's Wall Street Journal . Some interesting stuff about the salary cap, parity, real spending vs. cap charge etc. Some teams are staying below the min. while others are going over the max. One tidbit: "This season, the spread between the league's biggest payroll and the smallest was a whopping $66 million, enough to cover Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning's salary six times over." http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704224004574489773943949070.html?from=search_webresults<1>

, Thanx for the article...gonna read it right after this post.
is what I trully Do NOT understand one single bit... In a League (e.g. NFL), where There are so many strict and controlled guidelines that Teams DO and HAVE to stringently abide by, OR ELSE there will be some sort of penalty or sanction, or investigation, or even just complaints from Everyone under the sun)-WHAT IN GOD'S NAME IS GOING ON WITH IMHO, THE Most Important One for parity-control amongst teams-THE SALARY CAP PER TEAM
Now, There are things like Roster Limitations, Practice-squad Limits, Number of People on IR and investigations (however meager on this
one) on IF they trully are
Injured...He!!, The world (including fans) go up in arms when a Team doesn't list Players when they are Injured on a weekly basis before each game, BUT NOONE in the Commish's Office seems to care IF a Team is 10's of millions over The League's set Salary Cap per franchise!?!
THIS is what I was refering to in my Post of Last on this Thread... The Pat's run a tight-tight ship, and are under the cap, every year as I know it... The Pat's Organization is certainly NOT, what was the number you gave Bostate
-66 Million on some teams-OVER
is the problem... IF the Pat's went this way as some other team's do, and just threw this seemingly unmandated rule to the wind, We'd have that elite pass-rushing specialist on D, and We'd have the best #2 Wideout in the game...Guys that we could have thrown millions at in Free Agency this offseason. Could You ALL imagine How scarry-good We'd be then?!?
Again, sorry for the redundancy here-BUT there just always seems to be an "out" for Team's going over the cap-New Collective Bargaining arrangements, Forever increasing Total-Cap-Per-Team-Numbers, The ability to "make up" going over the cap in 1 year, 30
years later, the ability to sign elite Free Agents at crazy costs, and simply back-laden their contracts (and then simply cut them before they're do these numbers)...IDK, I just don't understand WHY the MOST IMPORTANT REGULATION OF ALL (having a cap per team for equality within the League), Is NOT more Regulated?
Can ANYone help me out here on this one?
