Yes, dude, and I'd already explained that when you questioned what I was saying. The way you put it was wrong, if you were saying the way I phrased it was wrong. Because the way I phrased it is how it works.

This is what I said. Whatever.

Because once a team uses the full Non-taxpayer MLE and ends up over the tax by using it, they are confined to remaining under the Apron for the rest of the year.

You have cap, tax threshold, and Apron. 3 different levels with different implications.
The only thing I didn't mention was the specific point where the Apron kicks in. + 4 mill

Jesus, Moremilk.
