As a member of the NFLPA, the NFLPA's agreement to the salary cap arrangements would, most likely, cut off his legal remedy.

Clearly he, and other potential Redskins are likely harmed, BUT the players organization agree to allow the harm to happen.
Right--I noted somewhere else that he probably doesn't have standing, given the NFLPA. But I'd damn sure want my dues back if I'm London! Sure, the NFLPA can say that the same amount of cash is out there, so London can go get it. But as someone who's captain of a team's D, he has more value to that team. And we all know that the the skins would spend the money, while it ain't going nowhere in Indy, Jax, etc.

London Fletcher just seems to be one of those good guys who gets ****ed with all the time. But I'm sure he'll be OK--let's pay the man!

Word is that these "warnings" never actually came from the NFL and never in writing and you don't heed warnings when you aren't doing anything wrong...

The NFLPA too the long term view of keeping salaries up for their members.

How can the NFL warn the Redskins, approve the contracts the Redskins sent them, and then reprimand them? The NFL league office approved the contracts! How do you back off a little? How is the Redskins organization arrogant?

Cowboys are unlikely to challenge their NFL-mandated salary cap reduction, according to a person familiar with case...

It's called the "get reamed now, call in favors later" strategy.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

for whats its worth, we dont have an owner thats just going to stand idly by and do nothing. So if theres a case to be made, or a lawsuit to file, itll be done. If nothing is done then you gotta assume he knew and was ok (accepted) it, regardless of the statement that bruce allen made.

Re: NFL taking away Redskins cap space

I made a mafia reference a few posts back--I really don't expect a lawsuit. That's like breaking the code of silence or something. Only Al "the Rat" Davis ever tried it.

Danny (and Jerry, no doubt) will get theirs however and whenever they can, for the rest of their business lives, I'd guess. Wonder how that next owner's meeting is gonna go?

LOL...Bad enough you have Giant envy and want to blame the "owners" of the other teams for all your problems ,now you tell London Fletcher to sue ,why,it's the teams choice to not pay him no other team or "owner" made that call just the Redskins.Money did'nt stop them from going after anyone else .Your buddy Graziano is just mad becuase the players threw him out of the Giants locker room.

Why did the players throw Graziano out of the locker room? Did he catch them faking again?

A few years ago I got into a...fracas with the local Fire Marshall in Bonita Springs regarding my business. Basically he was railroading me (with all kinds of threats for non-compliance) into buying about $20k worth of equipment that served no real purpose and had NO use.
BUT, if the truth were known, he was getting a little $$$ from the manufacturers for his trouble.
I could easily have proved these things in court and my Mouthpiece agreed 100%.
BUT he told me.....DO you REALLY want to deal with all the probs that, that dept can cause you for as long as you own that business? He'll cause you 10 times that amount.
TOUGH pill to swallow...but I bought the stuff......

I'm not sure how far this will go or if it would even help but I saw it at another site and thought I'd share it here. Would like to think it will get to whom they say it is supposed to go.

Please go away. Seriously, why do you enjoy tormenting Skins fans? We don't like you, we don't care about you.. I can't wait to see RG3 (who you where praying we wouldn't get) run all over your sorry ass team...
