In my honest opinion, this year's FTV is the most grabastic since the last lockout. Forgot to post earlier when I saw it but, EE tweeted (citing Forbes) that it's been estimated that Vinik & Co. lost $13.5MM last season. It's been my experience over the years that Forbes is a great resource for ballpark figures and in it's fairest form, educated guesses. Which is fine. I do it. A lot of folks do, as that's all we can do without access to the books.
I don't doubt that the Org had double digit losses but I've been accustomed to applying the "10%" MOE rule with Forbes figures. Minor portions of their formulas are a little too loosey goosey for my liking so, without sounding like Scott Cullen on the matter, I'll shut up.
Thinking this year's crop of FTV is closer to 15%.
Case in point, how the hell did the Turds close the $10MM FV gap on us with 3x's the debt load in 1 season? And I don't want to hear anything about them making the playoffs having to do with it either.
