After Vinny's post, I spent a few hours reading about the Skins, checking out their players, their contracts, and their future cap spaces.
They will be tight for at least a couple of years.
But the best thing may happened to them there, because it forces them to make do. Some lesser guys will be given opportunities and they might step up.
Their FO learns a lesson and they will be spending more wisely (doing more leg work ; ie. spend more time to hone their trade a little harder than they already have - that's pretty normal with most people, I think.)
