So old CBA had a enhanced repeater tax: if over the apron 3 out of 4 years, repeater rate would kick in for year 5.
New CBA has a similar enhanced repeater tax for being over the 2nd apron - so far so good.
Here's my question:
Say the last two years Team A was over the apron - do those 2 years count under the new 2nd apron look back period, OR
did every team's "clock" reset back to zero years under the new CBA rules?
I don’t know the answer for sure, but my guess is that the clock would not reset, in part because the new CBA has kept the original tax brackets for the next two seasons, and then is updating them. So it would appear the intent would be for things to continue as they were and transition into the new system, rather than have an abrupt change.
If my hotel WiFi worked, I’d pull up the CBA on my laptop, but there’s no way I’m finding out that answer on my phone.
