They have publicly stated that players will be under contract of the teams, not the league. I can’t remember where I saw that though. Might have been at an fc Edmonton meeting...

Great, but that changes nothing. The League is still the overall business (ie. Macdonalds) and the teams (franchises) do not compete against each other.
Corporate polices with a single corporation are NOT collusion of any kind.

For sure, I agree with that part for sure. Salary Caps are not collusion. It is just a part of the business model. Even if the league isn’t single entity, the separate teams are participating in a competition run by a single entity. So that league should be able to put in rules without calls for collusion.

salaries between $35k and 75k.

And Sacramento won’t get rich doing it, most players likely to earn between $35,000 and $75,000 per season in the CPL, at least to start”

most players.. so there may be some below and some above but a median salary of $55k is not bad at all.

So with a 22 man roster, roughly 800 to 1.2 million on salary.  Not the doomsday, semi-pro 750,000 put forth by some "fans" and I'm guessing not too high to scare away lower budget teams or break anyones back in year 1.  So far I am happy with the guys Valour have been getting with this salary structure.

This is an actuate range. If all information was made public I’d suspect  a median wage to be closer to 40-45k.

Here my understanding of going wage brackets. Entry level in mid $20s. Bench $30s. Rotational players $35-$45. Starting XI $40-$60. “DP” $60-75k. I’m not sure if there will be more than 1-2 players per team that will be make the top bracket.

I think it’s a safe bet that the cap is $800k+  based on what we know.  A 22 man roster at an average $35k a player is 770k so even that is extremely conservative. 

If I had to guess I would bet the cap is $1M.  It just has to be if you do basic math and use logic.  It wouldn’t surprise me if it’s 1.5 M though.. just in case teams like Valour and Forge want to spend a little more.  The difference between a 1M and 1.5M roster is literally nothing so a team shouldn’t be worried if they’re spending 900k and rivals are a few hundred thousand higher - that’s not going to decide anything but you may be able to bring in some more “names”. 

Even if you do it like this: $45k average salary for the 18 game day squad (very conservative).. $20k average for 5 developmental type players.. that’s $910,000 being conservative!

55K as an average would be $1.265 million, a very good starting point for CPL if that's the case and above most USL teams.
