That article is from today, but it's saying there hasn't been news of a deal yet, not that the owners turned the offer down.

No news yet--don't expect it for a while. It's gonna got to the wire. I am not optimisitc.

On a side note--Al Davis seems in good form: joking about people happy to give money away, so long as it's not their's; saying Art Shell is a good coach, and that some stupid owner fired him, etc. And he spoke in SUPPORT of Tagliabue. Someone gave old Al some happy pills, methinks.

The owners Dont wanna take the deal But they will have No other choice because if they Reject the offer then they will be shelling out alot more money in 07' then they would be doing if they agreed.Greed is a part of sports it fuels the competion and the owners are looking like the bad guys but they know they cant spin the heat toward the players we go to see,cause a owner is a invisible target but if we go against the pleyers there would be No more football cause we will blame them for the ticket and parking prices-Owners Accept and bite the Bullet.**Free Fantasy baseball on yahoo.com (League ID:183363 Password:theman)Real redskins fans come and play and pass the time till september.

True, the one major thing the union has to hold over the owners is an uncapped year in 07 & beyond. The cap holds labor costs down even if you're over it, like the danny is.

Re: Clayton - The Most Important 24 Hours in the History of the League

the uncapped year in 2007 is a bluff by the players. bidwell could decided to spend 15mill fielding a worthless team (no vet min, no salary floor which is currently 54mill) and he could pocket 65+mill a year from shared tv revenues. he's lucky that arizona is a vacation spot, so he can just advertise for visiting teams and still get decent ticket and concession cash.

If a few teams went the route of the clippers (which were NEVER in contention, but ALWAYS profitable), where is all this extra cash for the players? the top 5 at a position will get more money. Everyone else loses though. vet min is 235-770k a year, but in 2007, the NFL can drop it to 100-120k and still be 20-50% higher in salary than the cfl or afl.

Re: Clayton - The Most Important 24 Hours in the History of the League

Hahaa this is driving me crazzzy! Lock these b#tch players out. The owners don't work for the players, the players work for the owners. The owners PROVIDE the players with their jobs! As salaries go up, blue collar players will go away, while prima donnas like T.O. will increase. If the owners agree to these "negotiations", I would have to say it was more of a raping than a negotiation. In a negotiation both sides have to give, and the players really aren't giving at all. If my employees wanted to pull this crap on me I would fire them all (maybe even punch a few), and hire cheaper labor. I personally would enjoy a lockout season, because the players come and go but I am still a Redskins fan. LaVar leaving is a perfect example; it's not about the stars, it's about the team!

As Redskins fans, with a rich young owner (he's gonna be around for a loooong time), we should hope the owners tell the players to go f*** themselves.

Also it is possible for the owners to make their own little salary cap under the table, even if the players don't agree to one.

Thoughts?
Agreed. Owners will be less forthcoming with bonus money if it jacks up their annual cost (spread over 5 years instead of 6). I'm not sure why players would want this deal. They should be calling for it to be spread over 8 or more years! Realistically, I would push for a proration equivalent to the number of years in the BASE contract, not option years. And if you get an additional bonus 3 years in to play for one more year, it gets rolled into that year only. It will help teams stay out of salary cap purgatory.

The dispute over the CBA extension no longer involves the players. The dispute is now between the high and low revenue club owners.

So, I guess I don't understand why the players should be blamed because the rich owners have a beef with the "richer" owners.
