    Does anyone have or know where I can get the 15 point plan that was shown during the 1st intermission of the World Cup Finals??

    Also, can anyone tell me, where this plan came from? I couldn't hear in the bar

    From what I read of it, it all seemed pretty fair for both sides

    The point that Burke brings up about salary arbitration, he mentions baseball's "hi/low system"... Can anyone explain to me what that is? I don't follow baseball much anymore and don't know what the system is he's speaking of...

    Not sure if I'm reading it correctly, but the overage fees for exceeding the salary cap seem to break down like this:

    The Rangers spend 50 mill in payroll so judging by what I think Burke is mentioning is that the Rangers would have to fork over 60 mill in overrage fees?

    38 salary max, $5 for every million over = $38 mill * (12 mill * $5) = $98 mill.

    Someone correct me please as that can't be right?

    39 mil tax threshold - 1st mil = .50 on the dollar...aka 500,000 to the good business owners
    40 mil tax threshold - 2nd mil = dollar for dollar...1.5 mil
    41 mil tax threshold - 3rd mil = 2 for 1...2.5 mil
    42 mil tax threshold - 4th mil = 3 for 1...3.5 mil
    43 mil tax threshold - 5th mil = 5 for 1...5.5 mil
    44 mil tax threshold - 6th mil = 5 for 1...10.5 mil ... etc, etc, etc.

    I think in baseball players propose a salary and the gm proposes a salary (obviously the gm's will be lower and the player's will be higher). The arbitrator chooses one or the other rather than choosing a salary in the middle like in hockey.

    yes that's exactly right.. I believe the technical term for it is bracketed arbitration..

    it encourages bargaining in good faith.

    ie. if you're a player like ryan smyth.. you don't ask for a 12million/year contract cuz the arbitrator will likely pick the owners' number and likewise you don't offer joe sakic a 1.5mill/year contract if you're the owner..
