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

This is more a matter of principal to me. 30 owners break the law with collusion, two choose not to break the law, and what kind of message does the NFL want to send to the public and kids out there....it's ok to lie and cheat and break the law but if you do the right thing and don't break the law you'll be punished. Nice.

Really nice image to send to everyone Mr. Goodell break the law and we will reward you if you don't you get punished. All the players who got into trouble with a banned substance should file a lawsuit also, I mean why should they have to pay a penalty if the 30 owners can break the law and not pay a penalty.

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

some local business should offer a $21M prize to the next player who signs a 7 year contract with the redskins, and a $15M prize to the next player who signs a 6 year contract with the redskins

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

My guess after the Grossman deal is somewhere around $5.5 million in cap space.

That's smaller than the rookie pool will be. So even still needing to create space for Fletcher, we're on dollars borrowed from future seasons at this point.

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

The league should really play ball because the more this issue is examined, the more ridiculous they look. They sprang this punishment on the eve of free agency. They said the teams could spread the punishment over the next two years however they like and then reversed themselves and said at least half of the punishment had to be taken this season. They punished two teams for front loading contracts yet no punishment for the Bears who gave Julius Peppers a $20M base salary in 2010, dropping to $900k base salary in 2011. They didn't punish teams like the Bucs who exploited the absence of a minimum spending cap. Bottom line, they did not mete out punishments equally, they made the rules up as they went along, and waited two years to dole out "justice" on contracts the league approved!

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

Here's the main issue with all of this (among many very salient and relevant issues that all equal total crap):

The whole situation shows how the the NFL's owners operate as a cartel. Play by their rules or they'll put you down. There really is no denying it. There is no obvious legal justification for their actions, and there's even less justification from a fairness standpoint. But that isn't the point. If you think the repercussions of not following their illegal collusive activity were bad just wait until a lawsuit is filed from within their own that threatens their beloved antitrust exemption. I am not sure we can conceive of the reaction to that. Our "nuclear" option might dwarfed by theirs.

Doubt Rexs contact is anywhere near that. Last year he was the starter and signed for the vet min. Now he's a backup. Not gonna be over 2.5 mil, but I'd guess its under 2 mil.

Probably less than TJax's hit for sure.
