Based on all the questions I typically get on the salary cap I thought about doing a series of presentations under the goofy “Caponomics 101” name, and here we have the first as a general overview of the cap. I have the youtube video embedded in the post but if someone prefers a downloadable copy let me know and Ill see what I can do. Under the Youtube video is a copy of the slide deck if you want a copy of the slides. I have a few ideas for another 1 or 2 of these but if the feedback is good I can do more topics in this format over time explaining some of the analytics I like to fool around with from time to time.
Note: Around the 10:30 mark I said that the upper band is 58.5%. That is wrong. The 48.5% on the slide is correct.
