Lately i have been hearing alot about having a franchise player clause which would allow a team to not count its highest paid player's salary towards the cap. I have a different idea:
Do away with the ratio requirements, but at the same time do NOT count starting non-imports towards the salary cap.
This would still mean that quality non-imports would be the key to a team success because it would allow them more money to sign their key import players.
At the same time if you cant find a solid Canadian starting LB you can go out and buy a non-import but it will take away from your availble spending limit.
