Everyone is backloaded on the same schedule hoping for a boom in cap when the new TV contracts come through. We're probably in the worst situation for a dead CBA. Jets and raiders have contracts they can toss with tiny release fees, we don't :/.
The boom in TV money will be big for the owners as you said....So is it a good thing for the owners not to get a CBA done?

no, the skins structured all their contracts to be backloaded when the new tv contracts come through while assuming a new cba would just get done. the new tv contracts come AFTER when this CBA is supposed to be done though. If it doesn't get done, then we have to ditch guys left and right due to the heavy restrictions placed on the last year of an existing CBA, and by the time new tv deals happen there won't be a cap anyways.

no new CBA is the worst possible situation for the skins this season, as this team has a terrible contract roster for cap management going into a dead CBA - probably the worst with how the backloading is all taking effect this year and next.

Re: Uncapped year - Bad for Gibbs, Good for Williams

The reason for the thread's title is becuase if this plays out we will take an immediate hit that would probably mean Gibbs won't get another SB before the coaching timeframe he alloted himself runs out, but once GW takes over we will be in a postion to buy all the talent we need.

I also agree that it takes more than money to win, but as you pointed out sometimes it only takes that one or two guys to get you over the hump.

To answer my own question - I guess I'd be fine with it, afterall i enjoyed the 80's when Big Jack (best owner ever) used his wallet to our advantage. What inspired the question is the amount of people I meet who say they don't like the Skins because Snyder tries to buy a Super Bowl - and that is during the salary cap era. And I also admit I don't root for the Yankees because of this (the fact i grew up near baltimore is another reason).

You can't just buy a team. So much goes into making a productive team, it takes those guys willing to do the dirty work. A work ethic most "stars" refuse to take on. At first I was excited at the chance to have an uncapped year, but I don't want it anymore. However, I think the league realizes how important the cap is and will drop the revenue sharing down.
It wouldn't necessarily be the same situation as in 2000, Daseal. It would be like it was back in the 80's when we kept a good team pretty much all the time, because we could pay what we needed to pay our players to keep them together. If we have a potiential Super Bowl team, I would want to keep that team together as long as I possibly could.

People do realize that the 2007 uncapped season is supposed to be followed up by a strike in 2008, right?

Re: Uncapped year - Bad for Gibbs, Good for Williams

What I don't understand is why would the players strike. They will be making a shit load of money in some places if there is not cap

I guess some would get pissed at others gettin 25x the amount they got but...

We seem to do pretty well during strike years.

Good point, but I don't want to see another strike. A strike may or may not happen in 2008 if a deal isn't reached, but I don't want to find out.

Re: Uncapped year - Bad for Gibbs, Good for Williams

the strike would be for a higher percentage of revenues, BUT if the union decertifies and everything goes crazy, it means no cap, no minimum team salary (hello clippers franchises), no draft, no one way contracts (injuries can probably stop payment since they prevent a player from doing they're job, but MLB situation like sammy sosa getting $18mill to suck and suck hard would be tough luck for the owners who wouldn't be able to opt out of payment like they cap now).

Re: Uncapped year - Bad for Gibbs, Good for Williams

This is football, unlike baseball or even basketball having the most talented guys on the field doesn't guarantee a win. Football is the ultimate "team sport", it's all about who plays better as a team. Consider the Patriots, they've created a dynasty and if you ask me with the exception of Tom Brady, there best player is the kicker. There team is not built with stars, but rather chemistry. Some of there best players would be mediocre at best if they were on other teams. If we can keep our core guys together (unlike recent years) we too will soon be saying "Win one for the thumb"...with or without a cap.

good front seven (richard seymour anyone?), rodney harrison (when not on IR), they had ty law... plenty of people better than vinetari on that roster.
