Post Sallary Cap expansion.
When the New TV contracts were revealed, their were some in NFL Management that predicted a large spike in the cap that would happen in, ( I think it was 2014 ). But, other execs stated the opposite and quashed any talk of a spike in the cap.

It would be interesting to go back and see which execs gave us the truth and which ones were lying to us. Anyone know how to find our discussions on this matter? I tried to look for them. But, I came up empty.

Why would you care? They all have agendas. Even if they were right that doesn't mean they were telling the truth, they could have thought it wasn't going up and said the opposite and got lucky. It also doesn't mean the next time they speak they will be telling the truth either.

GM's will tell the truth when it aligns with their agenda, that varies from issue to issue. If they can gain a competitive edge, you bet they will be skirting the truth.

Most predicting for a large spike in salary cap space are expecting it for the 2015 season not the 2014. The contract went into play this year but I guess they don't expect to see results until 2015. Even with that it was a pretty even split between people saying the cap would be flat to slow down player contract increases and those saying it'll go up because of the boom in revenue. I bet it'll just fall some where in the middle with a decent size increase but not a large spike making both sides wrong in the end.

Didn't see this thread so I started another in the Jungle. Do with it whatever you will.

Did say that KFFL is reporting that the cap for 2014 will be $130 mil. Haven't verified it but that's what their saying!

KFFL is now saying that the number will be $132mil.

It is being reported that the cap might actually grow to $132-135 M or more for 2014.
