Welll....any question as to who this is?

It's not a bad plan. My main problem with it is the luxury tax system that he came up with. I'd prefer a luxury tax to a hard cap (I believe that teams that generate more revenue should be able to spend more), but Burke's plan is so restrictive that he might as well have put a hard cap in. Under that luxury tax, a team that has an $48 mil payroll would spend more in taxes than in player salaries. Ten teams topped $48 mil last year, including those quintessential free-spenders, the Devils. There is no way I could see the owners agreeing to a tax (if they agree to one at all) that goes above paying dollar for dollar.

See, Fletch. All you had to do was buy a beer for one of us and it would have counted for two.

Don't try to fool me.

All the posters on this board (except for me and Davisian) are the same guy with multiple personalities.

This is silly, but...
 
many in here, including myself, have met True Blue and Melrose and can attest they're different people. I kind of think you're ****ing with us, but in case you're not, here it is. And anybody that's insulting gets banned/posts erased/threads banned.
