    Players donít get a vote. They either sign or they donít.

    Of course they get a vote. They are the ones taking the cut. They might not have an official say but they would just walk away or strike.

    You would likely have to renew everyones contract to do this and plenty would just say no and walk. Utter disaster.

    There would be a transition period where all existing contracts are honoured.

    Salary caps, drafts etc arenít for me. I want to see the club maximising our income and building our club to become better than those around us. Firing a salary cap on to then hinder our clubs even more when we get into Europe isnít the way forward in my opinion.

    No but salary caps can be designed so that extra payments can be payed to veterans of your club or to players that have come through your own youth set up.
    A good marketable league is one which is competitive. Celtic and Rangers would still have an advantage from their bigger youth academies and their ability to attract the best coaches outside the salary cap but it gives everyone else a chance.
    A cap set at about £6m per season still means they would spend more than most of the league but it brings other teams into the fight.

    Would Rangers and Celtic trade domestic dominance for a more level playing field with the big boys in Europe?

    They might.

    Where do you draw the line?

    Should all second tier clubs like Alloa, Ayr or Hearts have the same player budget? And would that budget limit be applied to us if we drew them in the Scottish Cup?
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    So you've have clubs renewing guys for 5 years just before it and others with full teams on salary cap?

    More holes than a sieve in this plan.
