Depends on how they figure it. Does that cap number include the hit they took for cutting Antonio Bryant?
They will not play football next year without a salary cap and a floor. That's what this whole disagreement is over. What percentage of revenues will the cap be based on. I think the owners want 50%; the players 60%.
In the end the owners will win this thing. They hold the cards. The players' careers are too short to be able to stomach a long work stoppage
I must admit, I really haven't been following the CBA agreement all that much and really don't know the issues. I know rookie slotting is a issue and a salary cap too. But is guaranteed contracts an issue? If the players are fighting for guaranteed contracts and owners are holding out, than I can only assume there will be no football next season.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
