Use of Cash

I'm curious why cash can't seem to be used to offer contract extensions. For example, I have $23M in cash, offsetting a 6.8M current budget defecit. This does show up as 16.5M total available $, which also equates to same available for FAs. However, it does nothing to $ available for extensions (I currently have $0!). Seems to me cash is cash, is part of basic accounting principles for $ available for WHATEVER purpose...and cash talks, except it seems in this case, it doesn't! I don't understand why cash isn't available for me to spend however I wish. What this really boils down, to me anyway, is that cash isn't being treated as part of the overall balance sheet and $ available for whatever purposes I may need, not just trade and FA offers. What am I missing? Thanks!

If I understand the game mechanics, involved, once you are over budget, you can not offer any further contracts. Substantially, the owner is telling you "Yes, I see that pile of cash, we still have. And no, I'm not letting you go any further over the budget then you already have."

There is nothing in basic accounting principles about cash being available for "whatever purpose". That said, the game has its own rules and does not necessarily adhere to real life conventions.

OOTP treats cash as a current year item only. The owner can take it away at the end of the year and leave you with none. Therefore, cash does not apply to budget available for extensions, only for current year spending such as one-year contracts to free agents.
