Spirit or not if it's not in the rules that says they can't do it then the Skins did nothing wrong. If I'm DS I'm filing an appeal. Hope that the appeal would keep the NFL from doing anything until after we've picked up our players and have had a chance to have a lawyer prove they did nothing wrong.

How they going to all of a sudden come up with some BS about how it violated the spirit of the rules. Heck the Skins did that for years when they back loaded contracts and there was no penalty for that.
If there was EVER a time for Snyder to let the lawyers run wild this is it.

Like somebody said, if Dan Snyder can go all out to sue some small city newspaper over a bogus cause, than he should be going balls deep into the NFL with litigation over this since those contracts were approved by the very council that is handing down this punishment.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space



Admittedly, I had to look up collusion. This is the 100% definition. JoeRedskin will be able to tell us for sure. It's the combination of reward to other teams, disregard for what the numbers MIGHT have been and the timing of this.

I just can't imagine this was a perfect storm. SUCH BULLSHIT.

That is true. A lawsuit would be unlikely anyway, given that the owners are their own "old boys club," however dysfunctional.

Owners don't sue the NFL unless their name is Al Davis.

The lawsuits against the fans and the tiny paper were training......training to strip the lawyers of their last glimpse of humanity all leading up to this day where the NFL decided to stop playing fair and start playing dirty.

In class right now but just had to add my semi-confused, fully infuriated "WTF?!?". Can't really add much that hasn't already been said, but every part of this just pisses me off. Anyways... back to the lecture.

Whereas before we could have pissed them away willy nilly?

I would like to see the team push $26 mil into 2013 and sue the NFL, the other owners, the mgmt council and the NFLPA for collusion. This whole thing reeks of BS.

This is what I don't get? The Skins were not the only team that tried to benifit from the lack of a CBA. and how can the NFL enforce something that was not in place?

I guess the Giants owner didn't see it benefiting them much since they don't play in the NFC East?

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

So basically if this thing comes to pass without any change, can the owners just get together when a team wins the Super Bowl multiple times in a row and just say "in the spirit of parity, we're cutting your cap substantially!"?

This is the Bears plan as I alluded to earlier in the day. Last time we tried to acquire a weapon in the passing game the Bears outbid us. This time they knew they wouldn't be able to outbid us again for VJax so they did the next best thing.

Anyway new plan. Draft Vontaze Burfict, put him on Redskins One and have him pay a visit to every owner except ironically.....Dallas.

Soo, your saying when the NFL read the contracts and approved them they didn't feel the need to deny the contracts and inform the Skins that it was collusion at the time? Instead they approved the contracts. Then instead of informing the Skins anywhere form Sept to now they wait until March 12th, the eve of Free Agency to say "oh by the way we are taking away some of your money because we made a mistake and allowed contracts to go through that were collusion? WTF?

This screams of someone being pissed that the Skins made a trade for RGIII and still have a ton of money to get a specific player that they would like to see go elsewhere. If nothing else "IF" the NFL chooses to punish the Skins then they should make it apart of NEXT yrs salary CAP and the year after not all of a sudden out of the blue right before we are planning to spend money that the NFL originally said we had.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

Yessir. Basically we're bent over a barrel at the most inopportune time for FA. We most likely had a plan in place and now we're scrambling due to this bullshit.

I need to calm down, I just haven't been this pissed with something Skins-related in a while.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

This is completely unacceptable.

Reading some of the comments in the section of the PFT article. There was a guy who made the case that this is the best evidence brought forward so far where the league is in collusion.

The owners had a wink wink deal in place to not forgo some money in the uncapped year, but these two owners did it anyway because there was no document binding them not too. If this gets to a legal case, there can be a very good case made by our team to get these fines reduced or dropped.

What is really getting in my crawl is that the other 28 teams in the NFL get to spend our money? WTF is that. We are going to reward everyone else for what the Skins and Boys did wrong.

This is ridiculous and has just ruined our chances of competing any time soon.
