    Re: Salary Cap, a thing of the past?

    I would be pissed if the NFL did away with the salary cap.
    The salary cap, or lack there of, in baseball is the one thing that drives me nuts.
    You get much better competition when everybody is on the same level.
    Like stated, it's one of the things that makes the NFL so great.


    As the cliche goes...

Instead of opting out of the deal, just hold the signing to the minimum limit instead for your bottom line. Just because there is a cap, you don't have to spend to it... note the 07 Packers as one of many teams that didn't spend to the limit.

    In record profits.. it would be silly to disrupt the positive vibes of the game.. but the greedy bastages like Jerry Jones surely might swing the tide.
    Didn't someone provide us a link/info on a requirement to spend at least 85% of the CAP?

    Exactly, but if you are whining about profits, manage your spending like a normal business and maintain a level that works for your business model. Just because there is a cap, doesn't mean you have to spend right up to it. Correct though there is a minimum required.. but even at the max cap, most franchises aren't losing money.

    You have to keep the fans happy too, and I think most owners really want to win a championship. The problem is that the salary cap is a percentage of the owners profits, so as profits increase so do the expenses, this ensures that the teams making the least will always be able to cry poverty and demand a stadium, regardless of how much the league is profiting.



    PS. I have no idea what I just wrote or what it has to do with the thread.
