Wow, this is just depressing to me. The single thing that makes the NFL is the salary cap allowing any team a possibility at greatness.

I was watching ESPN and they reported a 3 hour meeting today which reached no progress and said the deal will likely not be reached leaving 2007 an uncapped year and as of right now NO FOOTBALL AT ALL in 2008.

That would break my heart if that happend :boohoo: :boohoo: :shakeno: :shakeno:

Quote from John Clayton. "If there is no new agreement reached on the current CBA, and no agreement is reached in the 2007 season, that would mean no football in 2008."

That is very unlikely but it is very likely there will be no salary cap in football anymore which (IMO) will terminate football :boohoo:

I call BS!!!!!!!!!!!


There is no way in the world Football will stop!!! There is too much money. Upshaw already said if the owners attempt a lockout the players will de-unionize and report anyways; Guaranteeing their paychecks.

An uncapped year doesn't scare the players at all...it scares the owners. Especially the small market ones. Which means only the owners would ever ignitiate a lock-out. And by disbanding the union the players still get paid.


So.....

THIS REPORT US COMPLETELY FALSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Football procedes no matter what...the only difference is how competative it will be....

I wouldn't go as far as saying 'it will terminate football' forever.

I'm not sure exactly, but believe this may be tied into Upshaws recent statements of no cap means no union. Basicly Upshaw informed players and agents if no new agreement was reached the union would be disolved. For the purpose of allowing anti-trust lawsuits by players against the NFL to keep owners "honest" in their monetary dealings with the players. If owners can't get deal done with the Union, the Courts could end up making the decision for them. Could see that mess leading to no football in 2008.
