  • No Salary Cap in 2011?

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/nfl...?urn=nfl,68730

    Any thoughts? Personally I think it's the worst thing that could happen to the league.

        An aggreement that requires just 9 of 32 owners to null the aggreement seems way too low.
        "We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."

            Agreed. I have no idea why it isn't majority rule.

            I have to assume that there are probably 9 pissed off owners out there that have enough money to field a winning team, but lack the intelligence necessary to do so, and are willing to pay more than the next guy in order to get that winning team. I understand that football players are underpaid relative to baseball and basketball players, but this doesn't seem like the solution.

              I've been worried about this for some time. If this became true not only would the majority of the good teams be within big markets, The Packers could be no More..

                It looks like it might happen, and its going to suck...One of the reasons the league has been so exciting as of late is because of parity, and teams having quick turnaround success, I cant believe they would let it go back to this after seeing how well everything goes with a cap in place.

                  This would be the absolute worst thing to happen to football. I guarantee that if the salary cap goes away attendance will fall off for at least half the league. People are simply not going to spend their hard earned money on a team they know cannot compete. Just look at baseball, many cities have attendance problems......and it's the only sport going on for most of their season. The NFL is competing against college football, college basketball, NBA, and NHL. People will move towards other sports if their team doesn't have a shot.

                  I am done arguing, until somebody says something stupid.

                      yeah i could see the downfall of the nfl if this happens...even as a new yorker in which the giants would have an unlimited of money i do not want this. what about teams like greenbay? and oakland? they are small-ish markets and they would be screwed. Baseball is a joke because they have no cap- the yankees, mets, red sox among others just frantically spend what ever they want where as teams like the devil rays and A's have to unload their good players every now and again because they cannot financially retain them and they go to a big market team
                      I personally think its disgusting and I think if this happens to football i will cry

                        The problem is, you're going to have to have maverick owners willing to take a loss on their football product. There's only so much you can make every year. There are only 10 home games. That won't change. Neither will the revenue sharing. So it won't be like baseball where they play 81 games at home and all that. There would definitely be limits.

                        And even though I joke about the Patriots being able to sign anyone they want (which they still may be able to do), I don't know if the Krafts would really want to dip into all their other investments in order to finance the Patriots.

                        Then again, that's what got them the Patriots so what do I know?

                            Yeah, you make a good point but the key factor that makes this a big deal is the ability of the large market teams to go above and beyond the salary cap. And I think even if you have just a few maverick owners who decide to go all out, it still is unfair as it makes them much more attractive to free agents because money talks. Just imagine Dan Snyder without having to worry about getting in under the cap. It could be crazy. I may be a little biased because I am a Packers fan and I think our team would be screwed if other owners could go beyond the cap because its not like the citizens of Green Bay are gonna get together and decide to go after a coveted free agent that would put them over the top. Oh well, I guess we'll see, but I'm definitely pulling for this to not happen.
