    Apparently the cap is a joke!

    The way it looks to me is it doesn't matter how far into the neagative teams are.

    These teams in the neagative are still allowed to play, sign more players & draft without any repercussion from the NFL.

    Look at all the teams in the negative that made the playoffs this year.

    They will still sign their big name players & just get further into the hole.

    Sounds like it's not a big deal to do so.

    Doesn't the NFL enforce the cap?

    Aren't there any penalties for being in the negative?

    WTF good is a cap if teams are allowed not to abide by it?

    11 teams are in the negative. 5 of them made the playoffs. Is it any wonder?

    I must be missing something here. Someone please enlighten me as to how the league even allows it to happen.
    These are the 2006 cap numbers. That means people will be restructuring contracts, getting traded, getting cut, etc. so they meet the salary cap. I would have to refresh my memory a little on the details, but the bottom-line is the teams with the negative numbers will have some work to do before the cap deadlline.

    Thanx Prophet!

    Looks like a lot of teams have their work cut out for them.

    2007 is "uncapped" as of now;

    "How is the NFL Salary Cap determined?

    Answer:The Cap is determined through a complicated calculation system. The Cap is based on income that the teams earn during a League Year. A percentage of that income, termed Defined Gross Revenues (DGR), is allocated for player expenditures. The DGR is based on ticket sales, merchandise sales, and broadcasts. The DGR is divided equally amongst all 32 teams.

    For all of you nerds out there, here is the actual mathematical calculation:

    Projected DGR x CBA Percentage = Players Share DGR

    Players Share minus Projected League wide Benefits =
    Amount Available for Player Salaries

    Amount Available for Player Salaries / Number of Teams =
    Unadjusted Salary Cap per Team

    The CBA Percentages were agreed upon in the 1998 and 2001 extension to the CBA are as follows:

    1998-2001 63%
    2002 64%
    2003 64.25%
    2004 64.75%
    2005 65.5%
    2006 64.5%
    2007 Uncapped Year

    NOTE: Minimum Team Salary (MTS) is 56% for the remainder of the CBA. If a team does not allocate at least 56%, then the players on the team roster for that year will be directly paid the shortage. "


    Oddly enough a new stadium for the Vikes would increase ticket sales, thereby raising every teams salary cap.

    With that being said, perhaps we could get the cheedicks to pitch in for a new stadium. :wink:

    Thats what i thought, teams who are over the cap will have to cut players in order to reach the cap max. Looks like there will be alot of FA's who are cut. Probably some pretty nice ones to, such as Derrrick Brooks who i would love to have for a year or two. I would hate to be in cap hell.

    The "no cap" issue for 2007 might be a problem. That might allow some teams to back load contracts.

    For top players who want a signing bonus this year, the pickings might be ripe for Wilf & Co. with are cap room.

    Rob is a financial whiz!

    will we actaully spend some of this money? i sure hope so. i really do indeed think we are only a few key players away from being a true contender.

    alexander + arrington + julian peterson + a new oline = championship?
    We're bringing purple back.

    The Vikings have some serious coin to toss around. With the potential trade talks and a bunch of worthwhile free agents and potential maneuvering during the draft the possibilities are endless.
