On the aggregate across the players likely not. That said, I'm not aware how players get the agreed upon %of HRR if a team does not spend to cap. Unless %HRR is tied to the cap floor and not the ceiling.

Also HRR (Gross Revenue), is estimated on the Mid point, with the Cap ceiling at +$8 mil and the cap floor -$8 mil from the center..

The concept being that some teams spend to the cap ceiling and some spend to the cap floor and the average spending overall coming in somewhere in the middle which would be close the other estimated HRR for that season.

When the final figures are in is adjusted to official numbers through the Escrow system which Squiffy mentioned, where a % portion is deducted from all players salaries on a regular basis through payroll deductions. The escrow % adjusted quarterly to best reflect gross revenue figures and then a refund given to players at end of season from the protions deducted throughout.

Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
