    We'll find out once teams start their season ticket renewal programs.

        Because there aren't enough people with that much disposable income in the DFW area that want to go to Cowboys games. To get a chance season tickets you have to put down a deposit and that doesnt even guarantee you get tickets. Parking is going to be like $75 a game!

          Maybe we're gonna see a swing in the favor of the small market teams during the economic downturn, as their prices are usually much more affordable to the average person than teams with huge payrolls and incredible stadium upkeep costs.

                It really good news for teams that planned on spending the majority of their cap on signing extensions to players currently on their rosters.

                  It's entirely possible. It's still cheaper to go to baseball games, which I think will see more attendance increases during next football season.

                        I'm not the salary cap expert that a lot of fans like to think they are, but it seems to me that many people think an increased salary cap gives their individual team an advantage. Why? Teams know the salary cap is going to go up and when it does, so do contracts. It's the players who benefit from a bigger salary cap. Teams are affected the equally, so it doesn't seem that it should help or hurt any team more than another.

                              That helps the Rams about...NONE!


                              I don't think it's that big of a deal, but that's just me.

                                I have a feeling we might sign one 'big' name player and other than that we will be pretty insignificant. With a billion in cap space you'd hope that doesn't happen but I guess time will tell.
