Re: Redskins, Cowboys could go “nuclear” over cap mess

I feel like the money isn't enough at this point, they owe the Skins and Cowboys picks, clearly more to the skins or higher round due to the severity. Other than redoing free agency, which would never happen, theres no way other than draft picks to make up for the fact they essentially missed out on free agency.

Mara's comment that we took advantage of a "loophole in the salary cap" is inane. Hey John, newsflash, there was no salary cap to have a loophole.

Mara's statement proves you don't have to be smart to have $$$.

Yes it will be funny since Goodell has already said while GW was with the Skins there was no bounty type system in place.

Look the reason the Saints got hammered was because Goodell contacted the Saints 3 seperate times in regards to the bounty and all 3 times the Saints LIED and denied there was any form of bounty. Thats why they got hammered.

But... your right it will get interesting if they do what you said because they have already come out and said unless there is other information their investigation has shown the Skins didn't have a bounty system. There was a system but a bounty system is when you in advance set a $ amount to have someone taken out of a game.

and as I've said before I can't recall any plays where our defense has hit someone and put them out of a game and the hit looked questionable. The PManning hit if I recall Fletcher was going to hit him chest level and PM lowered his stance as in flinching or tried to duck away from the hit and yes I think Fletcher hit him in the shoulder and lower helmet jaw area causing issue's with his neck. Not on purpose though.

This my friend is the best example of exactly what the issue is.

What baffles me is how the players not the NFLPA who reps them but the players themselves are not up in arms about their DSmith agreeing to such a deal. Ok the deal was made, but what if each individual player started filing their own law suit saying that they don't agree with the agreement DSmith made with the owners not to go after them. Were talking about hundereds of millions of dollars they could win. Not just 46mill.

If I was DSmith I would have said go ahead and lower the CAP and you will definitely see a law suit for collusion for more then the 46mill you want to punish your counterparts for. He had the league over the barrel also. He should have told them he would have to take it to the next players meeting and let them vote on it. The problem was that it would have taken too long and not effected what we did. The committee wanted to effect what we could do this year. and they did.

Exactly. The owners chose to go uncapped.

I am very happy with Graziano's handling of this issue. Makes me feel good to know someone at ESPN has the fans back in all of this.

ya know that is such a obvious point that goes unnoticed in this argument. They opted out and chose to go uncapped, so if anyone should know better what they chose to do it should be Mara and the rest of the owners. They chose to not have a contract, nothing in writing...

Cant believe Goodell was this effing foolish to go along with this.

But the figured they could opt of and go uncapped specifically because they thought they colluded to keep an unofficial salary cap in place. Now it's biting them in the ass.

Skins and Pokes seek arbitration.

Nothing like having to wipe egg off your face and be forced to back an idiotic move you were forced to go along with. lol.
