I read the all the posts. Sambo42, the riders had a papercut brigade all season long. You knew they had it, the fact that these players were under a league enforced contract was accepted. Tell me how you knowing how much Tate made is going to make change that situation. Tell me how knowing any players salary is going to stop cheating against the cap. It isn't, it can't and it won't. You knowing the salary has nothing to do with the league being transparent.
The problem with the league is that sms is shrouded in secrecy. Nobody really understands how it works and why it works and the accounting of it only comes at the end.
Could any fan sit down and track the 10 or 12 extra players the riders brought in over the season, and determine how of their contracts or letters of intent were paid for and fall under the cap. Not based on how contract value at all.
Additionally, you point out the NFL as prime example where the salaries are disclosed. The number that is diclosed is the current value of the contract. It doesn't reflect the signing bonus, which is spread over the term of the contract in the NFL. So only having the salary amount is of little or no value except to fans who want to know so they can do comparisions.
