It would happen in 2007 if they dont get a new CBA

I heard that even if they do get a new CBA, the salary cap would go up more each year...I don't know if thats true, but thats what i heard

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

the salary cap will always go up as long as league income (tv/sponsorship contracts) continues to increase.

Or, allow each team to pay up to three players whatever they ask for and whatever the owner is willing to part with. And make their salaries exempt from the cap -- the other 50 players' salaries will be governed by a cap similar to what the current system is. That way, teams can keep their Emmitt Smiths, LaVar Arringtons, and Jerry Rices.

A key disagreement between the NFL Management Council and NFL Players Association is how to assess league revenue. If the NFLPA gets its way, the amount of money considered league revenue will jump, as will the salary cap. Thus, if the two sides reach an agreement, it is likely that the salary cap will see a fairly significant increase (beyond that which it increased under the current CBA).

Owners like Snyder and Jones are fighting the NFLPA's position because they also want less-profitable teams to get a larger share of the pie. Of course, Snyder doesn't want to give his dough over to the Cards. If the two sides cannot reach a deal, then the following year will be uncapped.

In either case, it appears more and more likely that the cap will grow considerably in 2007. Thus, contrary to my previous position that we are headed for cap hell, we may ride out this storm.

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

Apparently you all missed the article in the post a few weeks back. "'Bring on the uncapped year.' " is what all of the players are saying.


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...111602208.html

There will be a no cap year as I have said from the begginning. There is to much at stake for both sides that there is no way they will and can reach an agreement.

I'm not sure if I want it or not, but I certainly think an uncapped year would be interesting.

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

the skins would love it since they are heading for a problem with the cap in the next couple of years.they could front load all contracts(to safeguard against the following years cap)and basically keep all players considered core.then fill in with whom ever they desired,i can see old danny boy walking around with a woody already

Re: IF the CBA doesn't get signed...

It's not gonna happen. Too many people are making way too much money to risk having it all go up in smoke over what is small (but not insignificant) potatoes. The "haves" (IE: Redskins,Cowboys,Patriots) simply won't be able to stop the other owners from ramming through a revenue sharing deal when the time finally comes and that'll unroadblock the CBA with the players right away. The biggest issue right now is that the owners don't even agree on what to do so they certainly can't make an agreement with the players.

How many times has someone said this in the past 5 years? Why do I still laugh every time I read something like it? Should we take the time to explain why there is no "impending cap doom"?

Actually our cap is in better shape than it has been in a couple seasons thanks to Mr. Coles.

Revenue sharing and the cap are the main reason the NFL is so successful. From what I've read they're fighting over relative scraps here. I don't think it would be the end of the world to have an uncapped year, but it definitely sets a bad precedent.

You are Crazy! (j/k)

The hard hitting, sudden bursts, followed by lulls between plays is the reason for success. The normal game ebbs and flows, almost like a well orchestrated Ballet. That, and gambling.
