    No kidding. This would not be the end of the NFL as we know it. Revenue sharing means the teams would each make enough money to stay competitive.

        You know damn well that Bidwell won't be spending the extra money, might as well start downsizing the league if they do that

              Indeed.

              Anyway, personnally, I am all in favor of the cap. It rewards intelligence and punishes stupity.

                You are forgetting that there was no free agengy before the salary cap. Well for most of it. The first year of free agency was uncapped, but then they corrected the problem before the next offseason.

                All teams in MLB get money from television contracts. It's just not the same amount because they sign they're own deals.

                  The NFL is the world's best case of a salary cap in a sporting league, it would be a tragedy to lose it. Want to know what no cap with an open market is like? Anyone here up on the English Premier League? Four major teams in Man-U, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool *all* linked by cash flow prosperity, with a few middle dwellers who at best can hope to crack the top 4 placement if they get lucky one year, and a bunch of bottom dwellers behind them who can only ever hope to become a middle dweller (or find a rich new owner interested in winning). If you like soccer, the quality of games is great, but there are two different leagues in one with the EPL - I'm sure teams finishing 5th often feel they've really come 1st.

                  And before anyone says the EPL doesn't have a draft like the NFL - somewhat true, but the way football works in the UK means clubs can acquire talent in their teens and basically acquire their rights. So while a team like Man U may be able to even do that better (i.e. they're not restricted by any pick order), the fact is even when a middle or lower team develops young talent, by the time he's 22 and a superstar, he's almost always heading off to a big money club anyway.

                  At least in the EPL, clubs are simultaneously competing in more than just the premiership, as they have various cups and tournaments going on at any one time, and upsets do happen. Sometimes poorer teams can focus on one achievement while the bigger clubs are focusing on something else and sneak by them. But the NFL is only about the one goal and without a cap, it will be very lop sided.

                    I like how everybody is trying to twist things, so now signing free agents is an unfair advantage

                      Wow, this would pretty much undo everything that Wellington Mara stood for... If we lose the cap in this sport, it will pretty much become baseball! The small market teams would sink, and the top teams would be big market teams.

                        If it is true, which it hasn't been confirmed it is yet, but if it is this would be probably the worst thing to happen to modern football.

                          Nahhhhhh, it'd be plenty entertaining to see Dan Snyder and George Steinbrenner compete to have the highest payroll in sports. Wouldn't you want to see which can reach a half billion yearly first?

                          Seriously, if the NFL, its union and its players can't figure out that what they've got now is the best thing going in all of sports, then they all deserve what they get.
                          To get overtaken in popularity by another sport like they overtook baseball and basketball. And to be investigated by Congress.

                              Err, yeah, it is when a select few teams have far more money to out spend other teams and no ramifications for doing so.
