“Crunching Numbers fills the void that has existed for years when it comes to understanding NFL contracts and the rules regarding the salary cap. An insightful read that will help anyone understand the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement and its impact on front office decision making.”
Paraag Marathe (San Francisco 49ers, Chief Strategy Officer/Executive VP of Football Operations)
“Jason and Vijay have taken a complicated subject and have broken it down in a way anyone can easily understand. A MUST read for all who want to learn about NFL contracts and the salary cap.”
Jason La Canfora (CBS Sports)
“I’ve been covering the NFL since the 90’s and consider Jason and Vijay to be indispensable resources for all things relating to the salary cap. Their extensive knowledge of the CBA shines through in this collaboration. These guys really do know their stuff!”
Mike Sando (ESPN Senior Writer and Pro Football Hall of Fame selector)
“Crunching Numbers is a welcome addition to the sport management education literature. Fitzgerald and Natarajan’s work provides an inside view, far more credible than anecdotal commentaries, uncovering the accounting and strategy behind the NFL’s salary cap. I cannot wait to introduce this book to my students. Crunching Numbers takes capology lectures from confusing for most to understood by many.”
Dr. Kristi Sweeney (Assistant Professor, University of North Florida)
“Vijay had told me to be on the lookout for an advance copy of Crunching Numbers, but I didn’t actually lay eyes on it until a Thursday, four days after its arrival. Why? B/c my husband had opened the package, commandeered the book and was devouring it.
Matt – who reads at least 50 nonfiction books a year – said Vijay and Jason turned something complex into easily digestible pieces, and that he learned so many simple things that reporters (falsely) assume everyone knows, like the difference between being waived and released. When I finally found him reading the book, he said, “You HAVE to read this” – only he wouldn’t actually give me the book b/c he had 20 more pages to go!”
Aditi Kinkhabwala (NFL Network, reporter)
“If you’re part of that hard-core fan base that lives and breathes the NFL, I really encourage you to give Crunching Numbers a look. I know Vijay and Jason are passionate football people but also regular guys, and that’s why they can convey such a complicated topic in a plain-talk kind of way.”
Neil Stratton (Inside The League)
“I really enjoyed the book. You really simplified a very complex system. The writing was excellent and you made the NFL financials easy to understand.”
Brian A. Turner, PhD. (Associate Professor/Sports Management, The Ohio State University)
