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

I really like the Redskins approach of not saying much to the media. I wish JJ would follow suit and keep his mouth shut. Let the grievance process take its course.

I don't think the Cowboys have said much more. Now JJ may be speaking today, but, I think both Snyder and he are more than savvy enough to limit their words to "legally approved content". Mara seemed to sink his own argument...

John Mara is wrong on so many levels that it's not even funny. Why in the world should the Redskins and Cowboys feel lucky that the league didn't strip them of draft picks? They did absolutely nothing wrong.

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

Good lord...could this whole situation stink anymore? Every new little revelation is as bad for the league as the last. When is the league going to start trying to combat all this? They have to have some sort of justification in their mind that has some rationale to it.

I just don't see how the league has any leg to stand on. Talk about some serious egg on their face. I think they'll have no choice but to reinstate that cap space.

Pretty sure they're at The Breakers in West Palm Beach. That place is SICK. Essentially a palace on the water.

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

Playing Devil's Advocate, the best argument I can make for the NFL at this point is this - The contract dumping had one and only one goal in mind - to circumvent a reinstated cap. If no cap were reinstated, the move would have no effect whatsoever b/c the monies would have already been paid out and the effect was purely a bookkeepping measure that mattered only in the determination of a team's cap expense. Thus, the move was aimed at gaining a competitive advantage if a cap was reinstated. Had no cap been reinstated, no penalty would have been forthcoming. B/c a cap was reinstated, and b/c the moves were intended to have an effect on the reinstated cap, it was appropriate to levy the penalties now as opposed to the time the actions were taken.

I still don't think that flies for all the reasons stated previously. Particularly for the reasons set out in FRPLG ealier posts about the intended effects of an uncapped year. Essentially, even if what you say is true NFL- so what? Wasn't that a negotiated risk you chose to accept when you terminated the 2006 CBA (i.e. that some owners might take actions that would have effects well beyond the initial uncapped year)? In effect, the Skins & Cowboys bet that the cap would be reinstated and performed the contract dumping during a period when they were legally allowed to do so. As I said - so what?

As the media has noted, the whole thing stinks to high heaven. DS & JJ may not be angels, but, right now, Mara is sounding like a poor little rich boy who didn't get his way.

Like what was stated in the piece, the NFL needs to make this go away as soon as possible, reinstate that cap space for the 'skins and 'boys, and never speak another word about this. The longer they let it go, the worse it's going to get.
