Re: In A Perfect NFL World.....

I am concerned with teams having to make this delicate balance with this salary cap and then bam some T.O. comes along and knocks the house of cards down. Maybe restructure contracts so they get paid by the day if you not here this day thats another 10 g's gone.. wanna go to the U miss three weeks let's see that will be 300,000 in checks you just missed. if you here you get paid if you not here you dont get paid. I guess i agree skins guy incentive based would work better. but i hate not being able to let Coles go without an 8 million dollar cap hit.

I agree 100% with you! That's why I say, just get rid of the salary cap altogether. I haven't really seen it to be THAT great - it only handicaps teams that have the money to pay the players. I mean, I don't really think of teams in terms of big market and small market teams. They all have the opportunity to make money through merchandising, sell of tickets, etc... why punish the teams that appear to make more money?

Dont' get me wrong, I'm all for making the NFL as competitive as possible - which is why I had suggested a probation period for rookies. They still have opportunities to improve their pay through their play in the probation period, and the teams will benefit from these rookies' efforts. Now, I am in no way suggesting that rookies who have big contracts don't put forth the effort - but I hear so many times of players not "living up to the contract." This would only ensure the player is worth what he gives to the team. I don't see this as necessarily a richer team having the advantage over teams that aren't as rich. If that was an issue, then as what others have suggested and I agree with would be to set a cap on the salary of the player. However, getting the player's union to agree with that would be like me getting the opportunity to date Natile Portman!

Re: In A Perfect NFL World.....

I would love to see a Rookie Mandatory Salary for at least 2 seasons. So this way the youngsters get into camp & actually learn & then earn.

Re: In A Perfect NFL World.....

Skinsguy,
I agree with your idea, I have always wanted the NFL players contracts to be heavily incentive based. That way nobody gets hurt, especailly the underpaid players.
The only problem I see with your suggestion is there amy be some anti-trust issues. Like most professional leagues in the country, they tread in a very gray area coming very close to collusion.

I was thinking the same thing TAFKAS...that NFL could adopt a rookie cap similar to the NBA..........Stern is pushing for an age limit to circumvent leaving college or coming right out of high school too.........

I think sports should be the sameway as other professional careers...after all, how many doctors would you want working on you that decided to leave college after their freshman year?
