This trick has been in existence for as long as humans have been bartering, and the various stores around the globe use it all the time.
First, massively inflate the price of something. Then cut that inflated price by "putting it on a sale". Idiots (read : customers) walk away feeling they've gotten a real bargain. The store is making money hand over fist because the sale wasnt really a sale at all.
Then again, even a Cally at 5 mill per year doesnt sit well with me.. not for the contract length. Sure, it would be great for the next year or two (barring any nasty injuries).. but after that, the contract will likely start to suck more and more.
But of course, the answer to everything is : hey, the cap is going up
Its funny. As if we didn't know this already, on our own, but Macy's was recently just outed as operating under those methods. Just funny that some of these big institutions are getting blown on, and all recently.
Regarding the cap, it would be pretty ignorant and in a fire-able offense if you didn't run your team with the knowledge the cap is going up. I don't know what it ends up at, but its pretty clear, its going up.
Sounds like a sarcastically trendy thing to say around here if you don't want to pay market rate.
