Mr Griffiths is reported as saying that without reductions they will breach the cap at the end of this season.
How can they avoid it ?
Players have contracts -so unless they volunteer reductions in those contracts those contracts will have to be paid.
Payments to terminate contracts count towards the cap. They are not cap free . (I understand) .
Injured players still have contracts.
So to be terminable (is there such a word ?) -to save any budget- a player would have to be out of contract but being paid -and be on a short notice period.
So what actions are actually available to Saracens to get the years pay bill below the £7m ?

They will get around it through stealth and clever management having learnt a few painful and expensive lessons recently. They are sly and ruthless, look at the way they are sneaking into a runners up spot in Europe - they will not fear a trip to Dublin in the quarters should it work out that way - clever.

Nigel Wray was a blatant cheat and subsequently a liar, nothing more or less

It will not go away Ted, I think it might get worst with Lord Dyson wanting his full report to be made public.
Bear in mind BT subscribers are paying for coverage of a corrupt product, and clubs are being beaten by a team that on a weekly run rate is probably above the limit, must be if Griffith's comments are true.
Not sure there will be a day of reckoning.

Well I wonít apologise for going on about it. Iím so angry about it, happy to make a lot of noise until there is justice. Yeah itís only sport but it isnít. Itís the community, identity, our hard earned money and peopleís livelihoods.

As someone who has worked in the City it represents every facet that I disliked about it - lying, cheating, greed, bullying.

Your right, it wonít go away, but on the same note, a new thread everyday, all of which pretty much say the same isnít required.

Iíll create one Sarries and salary cap thread, close all others and delete any new ones, so it can back to being a predominately saints board.
