I think the whole system is unfair. It's a system that continually places responsibility on players salaries because some really rich teams are raising revenue while some teams are really poor and have to pay extra. The owners need to accept a cap trading system or luxury tax.
We just saw last year Florida vastly overpay for UFA's so don't tell me small market teams don't overpay. You want a fair system but support trading cap space or a luxury tax which defeats the purpose of a cap so I don't believe what are saying is right at all.
