While I admit that I am obviously a Redskins fan, and obviously biased, I can manage to look at this in a neutral manner. Even in a neutral viewpoint I think this is the hugest pot of bull****. The National Football League penalized the Redskins 36 million and the Cowboys 10 million against their caps, completely hampering an exciting off-season that had the Redskins with nearly 40 million in Cap.

What the NFL has done is unprecedented, penalizing a team in a uncapped year, basically placing a cap on an uncapped year. The league has penalized the Redskins and Cowboys for taking advantage of smart financial planning, they at no point broke a written rule. The two teams were penalized for having an unfair advantage on fellow competition, fellow competition that simply did not pursue smart contracts with players.

The NFL had to get approval from the Union to make such penalties. When the Union was faced with their decision, they have been reported to have had two options, no penalties to the accused parties and the Cap amount for each team drops approximately 4 million, or each of the members teams would receive 1.6 million in Cap boost, excluding the Raiders and Saints.

What the league has done is blackmail, threatening each team with a loss of 4 million dollars or a gain of nearly 2 million dollars. The Union of course reluctantly accepted the 1.6 million, thus making it possible to enact penalties upon the Skins and Boys.

In addition, every single transaction of both teams in the 2010 and 2011 years were approved by the league office, as in the very commissioner that is now finding fault with these franchises.

So lets review the facts:

Skins are penalized in an uncapped year, a year in which teams are allowed to do as they wish with the salary cap

All free agent signings of both teams in the league years of 2010 and 2011 were approved by the league office

The fact that 46 million dollars is being given to 28 other teams is naturally unfair, afterall isn’t it fairness that the league is pursuing

The sequence of events in relation to the League Union was basically blackmail, not allowing the Union to make an intelligent decision.

These violations, at least in the Redskins case, are for 2 players, 1 who is gone, and one who could easily find himself out the door in the coming days.

There is no written rule

The fact that NFL Network is just now reporting this is fairly suspicious at the very least.

The league has made a preposterous mistake, penalizing innocent teams. The Cap charges are some of the most severe seen in the history of the league. All facts point to corruption in the league office. This is not about a level playing field, this is about the league flexing its muscles. No matter if biased or not, if a fan of the 2 teams or not, there is one thing that can be concluded, this is Class A Bull***.

The idea of a lawsuit has been offered by several sources, and arguably is justified. Dan Snyder and Jerry Jones have sued for less, it is now within their ballpark, it is their decision on exactly how to react to outrageous action by the NFL.

Bruce Allen’s response:

“The Washington Redskins have received no written documentation from the NFL concerning adjustments to the team salary cap in 2012 as reported in various media outlets. Every contract entered into by the club during the applicable periods complied with the 2010 and 2011 collective bargaining agreements and, in fact, were approved by the NFL commissioner’s office. We look forward to free agency, the draft and the coming football season.”

I'm mad Dallas is bringing in Carr. Our first FA visit will probably (AND BETTER BE!) Winston.

Waitin', watchin' the clock
It's four o'clock, it's got to stop
Tell him, take no more
She practices her speech, as he opens the door
She rolls over
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

Wait, how rich is Mario Williams? Guy was the #1 overall pick some years ago and I know he got paid. Now he's expected to receive $50 million guaranteed this offseason!
