Do you not understand the difference between a built in option and forced restructure?
For example, Galette's roster bonus was designed so a large portion of his signing bonus can be spread ac...

So seems like these Panther fans have about as much understanding of the cap situation as these so called "journalists" do.
They don't seem to understand things like using roster bonuses to help spread signing bonuses over more years later in the contract, but hey, not like it matters to actuall...

His Roster bonus is not guaranteed at all until next month is what I thought. And also, didn't his contract have a clause about getting arrested or behavior that he was freaking out about when that whole mess started?...

Why don't people wait until he does something like not choking in the playoffs before anointing the guy anything.
He's a great player, but he's not better than Durant or Westbrook. Also, he didn't fit what that team needed money-wise as far as spreading their cap space around without hitting the ...

Those teams also have significantly better coaches as far as X's and O's go. People aren't expecting a top 10 team here, but to anyone with a brain and any knowledge of basketball, they see a very poorly coached, young, but talented team.
Jones is a very very good recruiter (not Daddy Dale good ...

Doesn't a player sending in a LOI and the school accepting it cost them a towards the 25 this year, and any potential counting back the following year even if the player doesn't make it to campus?

[quote]This is ludicrous [/quote]
Why? There is a difference between mop up duty and one start and actually getting legitimate game experience.
The second half of the season wasted Harris' year. It isn't about him being the starter at all. It's about using the season effectively.

As a position coach.
I agree that there are too many variables, but this is truly a mediocre hire given his history. He's been a DC for 4 years. In that time, he's one defense in the top 19 and 2 30th or above.
