As you know, I often refer to NetRat's wonderful cap spreadsheet and numbers when writing about the Lions. As an addendum and clarification, from someone who has forgotten more about the cap and than I will ever know, regarding our discussion on the CBA, I highly suggest you check out this story that he wrote as it appeared on Hondo's blog regarding the changes in the CBA and how it affects the cap in 2009 as well. Great details, great read!
Love the back and forth on my somewhat hastily thrown together logic chain. Can't wait to see how many more angles we can find on it!
