    Re: Owners opt out of labor agreement

    uncapped year would be the worst thing that could happen. already people are thinking about that. cowboys signed two of their big time players past that deadline today. we better win our superbowl before then or they better solve this thing before then
    We're bringing purple back.

    Bob Kraft, Jerry Jones, and others explain why the owners opted out of the current CBA.
    Kraft, Jones, Rooney... all from teams that would LOVE a no salary cap year.
    I beg to differ on Rooney.
    I don't think the Steelers would be out there, spending a gazillion dollars on FAs.
    That's not their way, never has been.

    Now - Danny Snyder, OTOH.....

    Great article from Peter King, explaining some of the impacts of not having a new CBA in place for the 2010 season.
    An "uncapped" year makes it sound like it will be a feeding frenzy - which is not exactly true.

    EVERYONE should read this!

    All told, teams would be able to protect more players with tags, and would have fewer free agents because of the six-year rule, and the best eight teams would be playing with one hand tied behind their back.

    Re: Owners opt out of labor agreement

    Here is a good link that gets into the topic of the teams revenue,losses and the value of a franchise

    http://www.wfu.edu/~palmitar/Law&Valuation/Papers/1999/Vogel-Sports-Franchise.htm

    I wonder what the value of the Vikings franchise was in 1982 compared to today?

    Re: Owners opt out of labor agreement

    A friend of mine sent this link to me.
    It tracks with the info in the article Z posted from SI.

    Bob Ford: [size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt]Labor deals, salary caps and the Eagles[/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size]

    The motion was on the table, and it was time for the owners of the 32 affiliated companies - a collection of rich, powerful, headstrong and independent individuals - to cast their votes.
