I don't see the NFL without a cap. Just a couple of years ago, it was the same deal.

if the nfl didn't have the cap... there wouldn't be no FA or offseason... the only thing would be the draft.. u would just buy players like the yankees and red sox do in the mlb..

believe me, they will talk this out to every owner in the league time after time. i think that if they cant even think of what penalty to give michael vick in 3 months then a decision like this could take a few years. the cap is what makes the NFL so great, no team can have a major advantage over another unless that team crashes and burns itself. to remove the cap would be like merging the NFL and the AFL, crazy talk i tell yea.

I'm a Reds fan and every year I know I have no hopes of anything. I still watch, but with no hope of them competing for the World Series.

I have no faith in Goodell to do the right thing. None. But...I do have faith in the owners...such as the Rooney's, Mara's, and some others who still get what it takes to make a league run the right way. I think that Goodell would be happy if the Patriots won every single year.

yeah, if this happens the NFL is doomed just like MLB in my opinion.
But I really dont think that the owners will let this happen

Default Re: Steelers: surviving labor trouble?

I wrote my post several days ago and I just reread the other posts again and Ii am so pissed off about just the thought of of the cap removal and/or the changes in revenue sharing. Jerry Jones' ugly and disgusting mug is stuck in my brain . I am tired of owners such as him that are greedy to a point of being sick.

We have many dedciated , intelligent and intense Steeler fans who are members of this forum. I want to suggest that we put our selves on alert that should the possibility of such changes become imminent we do something to manifest our protest.

I think we should have a contingency plan of action. I am just "ideating " but one such course of action is to pick a nationally televised home game be it Monday ,
Sunday or Thursday night where we as fans walk out in the middle of the second quarter and with Heinz field empty at half time that will ive the commntators something to talk about.. We could rally other Franchise's fans such as Buffalo and others.


Come on guys this game is important to us as fans thus it belongs to us too. If the fairness of the game is threatned lets show the country what the STEELER NATION believes . Just knowing you guys will fight for the integrity of the NFL lifts my spirits. I hope we do not get to the point where such action is needed but if action is needed lets not sit back and just "take it " without a fight.

I am also interested in knowing who the "elite owners" are who would be in favor of a no cap no revenue sharing NFL are . Team by team. With Mara gone where do the Giants stand on this issue?

Ideas are appreciated and lets be on the alert.

I honestly think that taking away the salary cap would ultimately hit the NFL in the wallet. I just think that they would lose money. I could be off on that, just MO.

One thing I have to repeat: it is not the big owner like Jones and Snyder who are pushing the hardest to reopen the contract, it is some of the smaller to midsize owners, like the owners of the Bungles, Bills, Broncos and others. These owners feel they gave up too much in the last contract. Of course, my concern is that the Joneses will use this opportunity to blowup revenue sharing.

I'd like to know where the Rooneys fall with this issue? Dan Rooney pushed pretty hard to accept this deal. Has he changed his mind?
