Really though, on a contract with a first year value of 10 mill. you increase of 10% is 11 mill the second year, 13.3m for last year. 15% is 11.5 second year and 15.2. So .5 mill the second year and 1.9 in the fourth year. Is this really worth the effort of tracking every player and their contract lengths for?
Aww crap, looks like i didn't make it explict in the rules that the yearly increase is a fixed amount: BYS.r. Thats how it's done in the examples, but I didn't put it into words.
I'll have to amend it.
So if we have a 3 yr contract with BYS of 10 and r of 10%, we have 10+11+12 = 33
As to the argument that the $ difference isn't that much...isn't that an argument for
The BR team can offer 10+11.5+13 = 34.5. Not that much difference, but the result is that they win the player. But like I said before, time will tell whether we find this worth the hassel of tracking.
