Over the last 5yrs prior to this season we've been in the 65Mil + payroll, several times we were up just under the tax. In 08-09 I think we were around 70Mil with JO on the books. As for this season, if you expect us as a rebuilding team to spend over the cap that would be extremely bad business, and simply stupid. Spending has never been the issue for this team, it's been who they spend it on based on their options and having to overpay. Unless you argue that we should be a tax team, which no non-contending team does anyway. You don't go over the tax to try and contend, you go over when you're already there.
