When you are operating just above the cap floor, there's no need for fans to act like they are writing the cheques for these players.

This is somebody's real money we are talking aboot. I absolutely care whether or not Wellwood signed at 700K as opposed to 3mil. I support my team all the way up to ownership. It SHOULD matter to us fans because the 2.3 mil difference is huge and our ownership will have that much less of a loss/more of a profit to ensure ownership/team stability. If you had a choice would you pick to sign him at 3mil or 700k? Which is better regardless of the cap situation for the team? If you reply you don't care, that's just weird!

EDIT: sorry to rant haha
