By next year I meant 2013. Sorry that did not come across correct.

We all know the smaller market teams can not afford to hit the top number. Therefore the reason for it being an average.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
And even IF they do Pat could still stay on the lower edge of it and spend right at the 114 level which if my calculations are correct would be about only about ten mil more this year than last.
