And from the comments, this nice info:
2008: 58.2M payroll + 11.1M draft + ?? intl = >69.3M
2009: 70.5M payroll + 6.7M draft + >6M intl (incl Arguelles) = 83.2M
2010: 71.4M payroll + 6.7M draft + 2.7M intl = 80.8M
2011: 36.1M payroll + 14.1M draft + 6.8M intl = 57.0M
2012: 60.9M payroll + 6.1M draft + 2.1M intl = 69.1M
There's just no question that he's an embarrassing, lying sack of shit in practice. What we don't know is what he's paying himself and his family, and thus he's able to claim "Breaking even!" and could probably even produce the doctored bottom line to prove it.
Anyone who would even start to defend him at this point is a fool at best.
