As it stands, I somewhat understand this, but a few things. One, it is coming out of our pockets. This operation is almost entirely subsidized by the taxpayers. Lucas Oil was the last stadium to be almost completely taxpayer funded. The political climate has changed, and you will likely never see another. Further, we're the ones buying tickets, DirecTV, merchandise, etc. It is our money.
Beyond that, once we, hopefully, start drafting well and have to pay players second contracts, flexibility will matter. A million here or there will make a difference.
