    Softy they did not spend a billion. They spent  which is

    2012   175 mil

    2011   163 mil

    2010   168 mil

    2009   121 mil

    By adding those up you get 627 million which is a lot closer to a half than a whole. At least it is from the schools I learned math in.

    You failed to include the other costs of labor from the CBA, which brings it closer to 1 billion. But, a half a billion and zero playoff wins should not render you a giddy cheerleader, but it has;)

    They probably spent less than 1 million total on benefits.

    So what were those CBA costs? You also call me a giddy cheerleader which I am not. I'm a realist who knows that just because a player is paid a certain number that it always does not work out. Many sit back and say they used to do things different and that is why they were successful. That is pure BS it was the same F O doing the same things but not getting the results. They signed players who were expected to do certain things and did not. In the past players they signed played above what their career averages were and thus made the FO look brilliant. A few go the other way and they are idiots. 

    You can not predict a players numbers from year to year except to hope they come in close to or higher than their average.
