Then you should direct your anger towards Chia, and not Thomas. PC was the guy who rushed to get this deal signed and interpreted the over 40 contract stipulations incorrectly. The threat of Thomas getting hurt or retiring and having his salary still be attached to the cap was there from the day he signed the deal.
