Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

Wow, I can't believe this thread has nearly 200 posts already.

I'm sure it's been said, but I'm really miffed that there wasn't any specific rule that was broken. We lose $36M because we violated an "understanding?" Don't all deals have to be approved by the league? So the league approves these deals then drops a bomb on us for it?

The "officials of the league". Hmmm. Guess they're not skins or cowboys!
Ridiculous... I expect a shit storm coming the NFL's way.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

This is such cut and dry collusion, it's pretty preposterous.

I don't like Roger Goodell one bit.

has anyone actually seen or heard of the salary cap being reduced? i thought it was acutally up from last year? what were they going to reduce the salary cap to if the owners weren't forced into this deal?

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

This HAS to be illegal. I mean, even though Goodell rules with an iron fist, there are laws that must be followed in business practices. It just stinks of collusion to me.

I think its only up like a quarter of a million dollars from where it was last season.

And from what I am gathering, the NFLPA has to agree to the salary cap before the start of each season. The OWNERS made the NFLPA agree to this under pain of a reduced salary cap for all teams, reduced by like 3-4 million per team unless they agreed to the terms for the punishment for the 4 teams, the skins, cowboys, and no 1.6 million dollar cuts for the saints and raiders, who apparently adopted the same practices the skins and cowgirls did, but not to such an extent. The other owners and Goodell were the driving force behind this.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

My personal preference is to cut some high cost players, restructure some contracts, sign a lot of younger (cheap) players and just take the full hit this year and get it over with.

We got RGIII, and I will NOT let this kill my buzz. Hail.......

Won't stand, a verbal warning isn't enough in the courts.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

Be interesting to see what the Skins official response will be....
A little bit of a downer to be sure on the eve of Free Agency. But as has been stated, I do not believe for a moment that this has taken anybody at Redskin Park by surprise and I fully expect the team to acquire what they need in FA in a plan B mode.
If nothing else, over the years Dan and the team have proven to be salary Cap masters....always doing what the rest of the league said could not get done without ever falling into the always predicted salary cap....Hell.
No doubt contributing to the jealousy we see and the subsequent piling on of the other owners at this time?

I hope you're right but with the antitrust exemption the NFL enjoys a lot of rules go out the window.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

My uninformed legal gut tells me the Redskins may be able to tie this up in an appeals court -- at least until after season. I would expect paperwork to filed with the quickness.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

This is such bullshit. We are getting punished for spending money in an uncapped year. We did not break any rules. Everything about how unfair this is has already been said.

Having said that, this will probably end up being a good thing because now we won't be stupid and sign all the big name free agents and get overhyped again. We just need to hit the draft picks we do have and sign a few good free agents who aren't going to want a ton of money.

Yeah absolutely, but Redskins have logic on their side.

This is unjustifiable.

Why can't this be discussed on the main board? It is relevant to football talk because our FA season for the next 2 seasons just went out the window.
