Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

Ok, so on CSNWashington they have posted what the NFL League had announced...

Quote:
The Management Council Executive Committee determined that the contract practices of a small number of clubs during the 2010 league year created an unacceptable risk to future competitive balance, particularly in light of the relatively modest salary cap growth projected for the new agreementís early years. To remedy these effects and preserve competitive balance throughout the league, the parties to the CBA agreed to adjustments to team salary for the 2012 and 2013 seasons. These agreed-upon adjustments were structured in a manner that will not affect the salary cap or player spending on a league-wide basis
So if the league is announcing this, and no teams were named, and the Skins did not receive any notices from the League, is it safe to say that the Skins were not one of the teams punished or one of the teams having their CAP adjusted?

We weren't named
We know nothing about an adjustment

Sooo, you are saying that BA by "getting league approval, each contract, by the letter" blah, blah...we are good?
At least until all are lawyered up?

and I've never heard the NFL to approve something then come back a year or two later and say "oh although we approved it we are going to have to punish you because other teams didn't do this and it's causing a parity issue."

Simply hold an owners meeting and make a rule that says it can't be done in the future. How are they going to all of a sudden after the fact say oh we gotta fix this so everyone is happy and only 2 teams are going to pay for it?

"Though the NFL deftly persuaded the players to agree with the plan, the Cowboys and Redskins are being penalized for one simple reality.

They refused to engage in collusion."

It's Occupy NFL. The 99% are lashing out at the richest teams.

We need to tear gas the league offices.

I think this needs to be part of the CBA bylaws, I dunno if you can easily amend that without opening up a can of worms.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

We are screwed. The RG III deal is negated somewhat now. Yeah, we might have our boy, but now we have to cut bodies and no longer have a nice pot of money to get FAs with. Rebuilding just took a big hit if this crap is indeed the NFL law of the land. No money to really shore up the o line or defense at this point, and we will need to make some cuts that we don't want to make. Depth took a hit as well. The next two drafts will be just enough to maybe get some decent backups for depth, but beyond that forget it. I sure hope our scouts did a bangup job this season so we really draft smart.

I don't know about you guys, but I like watching fans overreact.

No we are not screwed. We just need to resign Fletch and get a receiver.
