The point I am making is that it is all well and good that our costs are being kept to a minimum for the coming season, but the delayed salary commitments are going to catch up on us. As long as there is a certainty that we are going to be in a position to deal with that, then it doesn't matter in the slightest how the contracts are structured.
Its Armstrong's philosophy. But you also have to recognize that a playoff caliber team during that span is going to steadily increase revenue...and that the salary cap WILL go up. It may not rise every year, and it may go down one time with the new CBA. But over the next 5 years its going to trend up with inflation, etc.
