    I disagree.
    You will never get 32 teams to all show restraint at the same time.
    It is a competitive business worth over a billion dollars as a whole.

    The only way to effect change to the rookie contracts is to regulate it.

    The draft you feel emanates from the cold war between the NFL and its players association, as owners clearly are unhappy with profit margins since the latest extension of the collective-bargaining agreement kicked in two years ago.

    Thanks for the reads my friend.

    Could some teams still throw big money around and turn the NFL Draft into the sham that baseball's draft is? Sure. Unlike baseball, though, those teams would pay a price under the cap and hamstring themselves if a pick or two didn't work out.
    Can you imagine how bad it would be to have a top 10 pick not work out.
    Would probably kill a team for a few years.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
