Salary Cap Detail 2019 & 2020

Not sure if anyone else is interested in this but I’ve tried to make sense of our Salary Cap. It’s not easy to piece it together as detail is often limited and I think sometimes numbers get touted around that might not be fact
What I’ve done and yeah, you need a spreadsheet, is put in the ones I could find and somehow logically back solve to near the salary cap number for 2019 which was $9.6m (plus Veterans $200k less $315k fine)
If nothing else I’d appreciate any information which is more than “I’ve heard its $1m for Mbye” sort of thing and maybe I can refine it to keep an idea of where we are at
As I say’ it’s far from perfect but would appreciate others help in refining it

Thanks mate, yeah it was disturbing, plus the worst ones are probably the ones with the most evidence as well so they’re pretty real
Matulino, McQueen, Packer, Reynolds !!!
I do think Mbye isn’t quite as bad as maybe it’s been made out if it is indeed $750k per year with Dogs paying $175k in each of 2019 & 2020

Don’t be a douchebag, if someone takes the trouble to analyse and discuss something that they are interested in. If you are personally disinterested, move on.

Twal on 200 (assuming its accurate) is great value. He’ll be nearly commanding triple when he goes on to the open market, which is on Friday.

No need to be a spanner about it Demps.

Yea, was hoping he’d be re-signed before then. Few clubs would definitely be interested in him, you would think.

He was signed back in May 2017 until 2020 when he hadn’t played a first grade game so it can’t be much more

Agree he’s due for a big lift but thanks god we have the odd one like that to offset to a very minor degree the big dollar dead wood we have
