Maybe I'm misunderstanding you. My point is that Columbus doesn't care about caphit, because we aren't a cap team. Doesn't matter if its off the books, if the money comes out of the owner's pockets its spending.
The only exception to this I can think of is if for some crazy reason our owner wants to spend a fortune, they might proactively buyout a guy like Umby in the summer of 2014 (just before the amnesty window closes) so they can spend even more in the following years. Then you would pay Umby 2/3 of the remainder of the deal, and 100% of the deal's caphit is amnestied (gone).
