Before saying what I would do, here's what I think I understand about this mess:

  1. Compared to other pro athletes in other sports, pro football players are way underpaid, especially considering their short careers and risk to health.
  2. As a result of the above, NFLPA is demanding a much higher percentage of the TV revenue and a percentage of a team's local revenue. As much as anyone, it's the player's association forcing the revenue sharing discussion! (The player's also want to cut agent commissions to 2%. That could be very shortsighted on their part) I don't blame NFLPA for advocating for players. It's their job. The issue is that small markets generate less local revenue to tap, so players on a small market team are at a financial disadvantage to players in a big market. Thus, the socialistic revenue sharing idea. (socialism bad; capitalism good; in capitalism man exploits man, but in socialism it's the other way around)
  1. The Redskins are a wealthy franchise because they own their stadium. If other teams want to gain, they should build and own their own stadium. Applies to the greedy major league baseball monopoly, too.
  2. Fedex is the largest stadium in the league and always sells out. Visiting teams get 40% of the gate, so it's a big payday when they come -- and everybody wants to come! To get my vote for sharing local revenue, I want to cut the visitors share of the gate to 30% to make up for the loss. (or some such formula)


the nflpa doesn't really consider its members underpaid per se (hockey and soccer players make less and basketball teams make less per team), but if the money is there and they help raise it, they want to take more of it home. its greed on both sides.



the other quick point is danny owns his stadium, but, of course, he owns the debt too, and no one is talking about how to pay that off. its not fair for the redskins stores to pay for the colts lease deal when only danny is left to pay off his debt.

I'd prefer to be speculating with glee about who we'd get in free agency and the draft without worrying about the cap.

But the bright side is that Gibbs, Williams, and Saunders are here. If there is any time to dismantle a franchise and rebuild, let's do it when the coaching staff knows what it is doing, can compensate for roster turnover, and can get us on the right track in a hurry.

What would I do if I owned the Redskins? I'll tell you what I'd do. Two cheerleaders at the same time.

You need to put that in your TPS report. Did you get the memo about the TPS reports? Great.

If I were Snyder I would sue the league in Federal Court. They are engaged in every form of nefarious monopoly, restraint of trade, collusion, extortion racketeering, violations of the Mann Act (see Panthers Cheerleaders), pimping, pandering, cruelty to animals, public urination, indecent exposure, and civil rights violations so numerous, profound, and disgusting that both brevity and decorum prohibit listing them here. Its outragous.

Why not. Davis beat them in court. It's the American way to sue when you can't have your way.

Re: If You Owned the Redskins what would you do?

I would make the cuts and sacrifice for 2006. Then I would sign every free agent that gibbs wants (and every player from the U) and pay all of the bonuses in 2007. I would also restructure every contract to get every single dollar possible paid in 2007. Then I would enjoy the football version of the Yankees for the next decade.
