Snyder's versus Bidwell's is rapidly becoming a moot point. We saw it in Cincy, when Brown was forced to invest in some infrastructure and try and win or lose the franchise. The days of some NFL owners being slumlords is about over.

If it was ALL about money, wouldn't the Cards owners be the first to suggest selling jersey space for ad revenue?

The wealthier owners are not on board. I had given up on Jerry Jones and Danny Snyder, but am concerned with this ESPN story that Pats owner Robert Kraft has emerged as the most vocal opponent of a new revenue sharing model under the proposed CBA.


Combine that with the NFL denying a Washington Post story that Tags told Upshaw he will recommend the owners accept the NFLPA proposal and I give up guessing to what will happen. I do not believe Tags can go back to Upshaw if the owners do not approve and ask for any major change in what goes into the revenue pot, only the % that goes to the players. It is not the % that teh rich owners are most concerned about, it is what they have to share.

I was listening to Ben's agent Leigh Steinberg while traveling today and Steinberg said agents for this year's high draft picks (Steinberg represents Matt Leinart) are voicing concerns top rookies will get screwed on $$ with no new CBA compared to last year's draft. Steinberg also said the key to NFL success has been about keeping the focus on the field, which will not be achieved by debating the CBA for the next several years.
