I'll never understand the whole rooting against your team thing, but oh well.

Either that, or everything looks like a nail when you have a hammer in your hand.
Well played.

I'm preparing myself for the dark cloud by pre-emptively selling myself on the imagined silver lining.

Unfortunately that happens a lot here, from people wanting the Redskins to lose for a better draft position to people wanting a Skins player to screw up because they don't like them as a person. We got some crazy fans up in here.

By saying "Because i hope that the penalty stands and it is a serious slap to the face of the organization. I want it to remind them that the path to the playoffs isnt through overpriced free agents coming from systems with Peyton Manning delivering the packages." are you preparing yourself for a dark cloud or wishing for the dark cloud ?

Remember he made very pointed statements leading in to the league meetings.
I'll say I'm guessing either Burbank advises he has authority and passes judgment, or has partial authority, what I really wonder with your scenario is could the two teams have mentioned that "if" Burbank cannot hear the case then they "will" file in the courts to have this issue heard unless their is a settlement offer? Now they are waiting for Mara?

So now Burbank is buying time for Mara and whomever to decide of they should make an offer or not or be faced with this whole mess going to court.

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

I love that old saying....

We can lose the battle but were gunna win the war. We might lose in Arbitration but I think Goodell, Mara, and the CEC, and other owners know if it gets brought before a court of law they most likely will lose and possibly bad .... maybe loosing out on their exemption they've lived off of for their entire inception.

Could have saved ourselves 2 first rounders and a high second by losing a few more games. I don't understand how you or anyone else can justify 3 wins in a completely meaningless season being worth three stud players. Maybe we should have made a deal with the devil and given offered Kerrigan, Orakpo, and Trent Williams as tribute to go 8-8 last year. Worth it?

Could've, would've should've. Nonsense. You play to win, not for a better place in the draft! We're trying to build a winner, and you don't do that by losing. Ever.

Despite the fact that I think I just told you how losing a few more games would help build us a winner...I could go on and on about how so many of the great teams today are only good because they lost and had good draft position.

The only thing you told me is that you think the Skins should have lost more games. I guess you also thought that we should have gone 1-15 to join the "suck for Luck" club...

Losing is for losers, and your pining for a better draft position changes nothing. Name a team that tanked games ON PURPOSE to improve their draft position.
