Current Rule: See salaries below.
Proposed Change: See salaries below:
Justification: In the NFL, the top 5-10 picks get significantly higher salaries than later picks. See https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/draft/2019/. So I am proposing a similar salary scale whereby the salary of the top 8 picks is increased to reflect what happens in the NFL. Why 8? Because that is where the current cut-off is in the rules. It may also discourage "tanking" which some members believe is an issue.

Picks / Current Salary / Proposed Salary
1-2 / $1.5 Million / $3.0 Million
3-4 / $1.5 Million / $2.75 Million
5-6 / $1.25 Million / $2.25 Million
7-8 / $1.25 Million / $2.0 Million

I would keep the salary where it is. The rookie picks would be more devalued with high costs.

My feeling on this depends on where the other amendment(delay rookie salaries a year) goes.... if that passes, this becomes more acceptable with the extra year to evaluate and decide; if it remains under the current structure; I would say 'no'.... we have several proposals to help the weaker teams rebound in this year's amendments, why hurt them with additional cost burdens....

That makes a lot of sense Jerry!

The NFL salary cap goes up year by year. KRFL does not. We used to limit how much a player could make ($10 million). Now we don't. Now you want to increase a rookie's salary, but again - the cap stays the same. Players salaries keep rising in our league, but the amount we have to spend has stayed the same.

I like this rule, I think anytime fairness and more true to the NFL works. I however am against waiting an extra year per the other rule.
