    if you see their reactions you'd start to believe the Redskins, Cowboys and such suck so bad they need to get an unfair advantage in order to win a superbowl... Surely, I am misunderstanding their enthousiasm.

        Just like the Knicks who have 2x the payroll of the Spurs.....

        But seriously, I would hate to see this happen. Even as a Mets fan, a championship is really not as sweet as a Superbowl win....

          Turning the nfl into baseball now, Parity is one of the best things going for football right now and makes me love the game so much...Talent has to spread out, and teams are able to turn it around so much quicker, no cap we know whose getting all the players and id rather not hear anyone cry about how they hate the cowboys for any more reasons.

            This would be the worst possible thing that I could imagine. It would be way to hard for Green Bay to keeps its head above water and if they managed to hold onto a team then they'd be about as competitive as the Marlins of baseball.

                The cost control associated with a salary cap gives the owners a nearly guaranteed profit margin. While the Redskins and Cowboys would likely spend a great deal (then recoup the money by gouging their fans), most clubs would choose to keep their salary structure within the boundaries of the projected salary cap. With all of the debt servicing involved with many NFL stadiums (Colts, Giants/Jets, Cowboys, Redskins, Jags, Broncos, Bears, Seahawks, etc.), the owners cannot necessarily afford to pay the players whatever they feel like and still turn a profit.

                    The owners had better take a look at the MLB and be warned. About half of major league baseball teams have bad to terrible attendance because people are not going to pay money to watch a team that they know has no chance. The NFL would see a significant fall in popularity if this happens.

                    I am done arguing, until somebody says something stupid.

                      Yeah, better start buying those Packers stocks if you wanna help out.

                          I don't think anyone wants to see this happen. The players are getting paid and are happy. Most owners have a built-in profit margin and are building their coffers significantly because they cannot spend over a certain amount. Why would ownership risk a near guaranteed profit margin? Let's face facts:

                          1.) The players have a good deal, and they aren't going to accept a lower percentage of revenue. It will take an extended strike before this can happen.

                          2.) Lower revenue franchises need the salary cap to control their own costs. Even then, they have trouble competing in terms of facilities, scouting, etc.

                          3.) Medium revenue franchises are petrified to risk their profit margin to compete with the high revenue owners. They would rather keep the status quo than risk it.

                          4.) Large revenue clubs have the most to lose here. Because they make the most money with luxury boxes, local media contracts, and apparel, they risk eating a significant portion of their own money just to potentially get an edge in competition.

                          5.) I don't see how the players can accept a situation where they don't have guaranteed contracts, but the owners can "spend" as much as they want. In the long run, it is possible that it will hurt player revenues.

                            Yes, this is completely fair to all of the small-market teams in the NFL.

                              I agree with you 100% I really hope this does not happen

                                I don't think anyone wants it to happen. However, I do think there will be a strike in the future. Every year, the cost of paying the players 60% of revenues is higher and higher. I'm not certain that revenues will grow as quickly as they have been the last 5-6 years. I'm also pretty sure that the owners are not going to let the players get much more of a piece of the pie than 60%. They do have significant operating costs, and they need to run their businesses. I foresee a big clash in the future, but not in 2008-2009. Maybe 2011-2012 or soon after.
