What is that so hard to understand about that? All this does is punish us for doing something that was approved by the league, they didn't like it, but they approved it.

We should be pissed. This is horrible and it has the finger prints of ****ing Burkie all over it.
If this is true there are going to be a bunch of teams gunning for Gary's head (in combination with three lockouts in his tenure). There is absolutely no benefit to the league for this, nor the PA. They approved the deals and they wrote the CBA. All the teams did was act in accordance with the rules in place. There is no support for violation of the spirit of the cap. Bettman and Burke violated that all the time with their heavy suasion for collusive behaviour amongst teams (Decrying RFA offer sheets for example)
