Explain why I don't understand it. As I am aware clubs can pay players 50% of their turnover or £1.65 million maximum. According to fans of other clubs Warrington have been over the cap for years(strangely never been found guilty of cheating though?)do fans of other clubs understand it?
I don't think anyone without access to all the information could come close to understand it, its not a transparent system. I don't know how many people the RFL employ to monitor the "live cap" but to do it properly would take a cast of thousands when you think how complicated a players contract could be with image rights, win bonuses, appearance fees etc. Add to that the possibility to pay for public appearances, payments from sponsors payments from club owners other companies, payments to spouses/family members. I'd replace it with a much simpler system personally.
Its often said the clubs accountant should also be awarded a winners ring at the Grand Final and I don't doubt thats true for a second!
