Re: Holy Crap. Cap Help.

Look it up in the finance tabs; one of them (likely the one with Cap Penalty, since IIRC that also includes player salaries) will tell you what you need to know.

I turn off the cap since I found out the NFL is likely not going to use a salary cap next season...

Re: Holy Crap. Cap Help.

The thing that you need to remember is that when you start your franchise, you may be 40 million under the cap. And they you may sign a bunch of guys and think you are in good shape because you still have 20 million in cap space. However, the game gets you. When you sign a guy, watch his year by year. He may only make 2 million on year 1 of his contract giving you plenty of cap space, but all the contracts in this game are heavily backloaded so by year 3-4 he could be making around 8-9 million. If you signed 5 guys like this, your salary cap is eventually going to go through the roof.

One way around this is to sign guys to extensions. For example, say you originally signed Landry to a 5 year contract. In year 1 he made 2 million and year 4 he is making 9 million. If you sign him to an extension now, year 1 of that contract might be around 3-4 million as opposed to 9 million, which will save you some cap space. However, its always a balancing act that you need to continually manage. The cap is virtually an illusion.
