Further complicating matters is the fact that the Skins, by all appearances, were blindsided by the penalty. whatever plans the skins were working on for the past several months are no longer valid. in a very compressed timeframe, they need to come up with, and execute a "Plan B." Is it doable? yes. But i'd be alot more comfortable if the skins had known about this contingency, and planned for it, months ago.
I regretfully agree with your point. I do think they are not that surprised with the ruling. I believe it is more of a case of.....let's do it and see if what they do? If we get the hammered, we'll go to plan "B".
Listening to 980 in DC right now, the thought is they have known about this for some time and making possible plans to combat it if it could not be defeated.......
Still no good info on the future of this deal....Law suit.....Hitman....Jihad...

so lets think about this - other owners, who were doing the same thing themselves to a lesser degree, verbally told the skins and cowboys not to do what they did, and now the redskins and cowboys are receiving an unprecedented penalty.

The more that comes out of of the more disgusted i am with what transpired.
Ha! Wow! If the other owners can simply just come crying to the league office and office does something like this, what would stop these same cry babies from trying to do worse to these teams? I don't see how law suits can be avoided at this point.

I agree with this. It's not like we used the money to bring in a bunch of free agents in 2010. We just pushed future money to the present on the garbage we had already signed previously.

The Bears on the other hand used 2010 to bring in a brand new FA Peppers. They dumped $35M of his money into the uncapped year. Would they have been able to bring in Peppers without the uncapped year? Maybe but definitely not as easily.

even if a lawsuit was pursued and the skins and cowboys won, it wouldnt help us now. we WILL miss out on free agents NOW and that can't be undone. theres simply no point in pursuing litigation, even if it were an option.

Jerry Jones to Dan Snyder yesterday: "Goodell is a pimp. He never coulda outfought us. But I didn't know until this day that it was the other owners all along."

Yes, it's yet another reference to The Godfather.

Hold on, it could be a court issue for the players union. If the owners say there was an agreement then the owners colluded and the union would have an arguement that the owners were colluding during the lockout. But whats being said is there was an agreement but had the League not permitted the deals then the players union would have been tipped off and no CBA would have been signed and they would have gone to court over collusion.

Instead the League approved the deals in order to keep the peace and get a new CBA signed. They can't go back and now cry fould with out pointing out that they were colluding at the time which gives the NFLPA the right to take the owners to court over collusion during the lockout.

either they were colluding or they were not. If they were not then the Skins and Boys are off the hook. If the Skins and Boys broke an agreement then the owners just proved they were colluding against the NFLPA.

So, whether there are salient legal issues or not, it is unlikely that this will see a courtroom.
Your right it won't see a court room cause the League will not want their laundry aired. But I'm guessing we will have to bite the bullet for now spend what we can. Then handle our draft. Then after the draft file an appeal or law suit against the NFL. I really wish the NFLPA would step up and get involved in this. That alone would make the other Owners back off. I think.

Everything you say is reasonable in theory, but not applicable when you're dealing with a bully.

Well we know the NFLPA won't take the NFL to court over the alleged collusion because the NFL blackmailed them into agreeing on the punishment for the Skins and Cowboys. So if this does go to court (which I believe it won't) it will be the Skins and Cowboys against the NFL. At which point we can pretty much lose all hope that the NFL will cut us any slack for anything over the next 20 years, because that's the standard MO after a team (80's Raiders) sues the league and wins.

Nevermind, mooby said it. The NFLPA has already signed off on the cap thing.
