in 2007 the cap will be 109 million and in 2008 the cap will be 116 million, I do think the cap should be a bit higher but the climb has to stop sometime. anyway this could be good for our cap space. the article says that some teams have over 30 million cap space in 2007 and a few have over 40 million of cap room.

This is definitely good for us. Since we have one of the wealthiest franchises in the NFL. It also hurts teams like the Eagles, Patriots and Bears who are notorious for being under the cap. A big name free agent might skip them as an option if he knows they arent willing to fill the cap.

Let the filter do its job.

doesn't matter...Dolphins don't seem to know removed about how to manage (or 'massage') the cap properly...too many 'fat' players on this team are being paid way too much money...as in, Pro Bowl money for non-pro Bowl play...with that warped sensibility reigning supreme (see: GM not allowed to be a GM), get used to the Dolphins being a perennial 'bottom-feeder' in FA for a long LONG time...a team, not a winning team, just a team...and likely, a team that may be on the 'move' within 4-6 more years of non-playoff mediocrity...by then, Miamians won't miss 'em, and won't care (maybe that's the plan?)

This sort of development is a bit of neutral development. I don't see how it helps or hurts any one franchise, given the profit sharing plan.

If anything it hurts the players, because the cap is successively each year out-stripping player salaries. Not enough agents take cap inflation into enough account when negotiating long term deals with players.

Each year more and more teams are very comfortably underneath the cap. Why? Two reasons. Better cap management on their part (probably a reduction of average 'dead weight' money), but also because the cap is increasing faster than players can demand appropriate increases in salary, under the free agent system.

hey nick, ask your dad...they(Cards) let St. Louis just around when you were born...trust that in the world of business ($$$), never say never!

(P.S., about 10-12yrs ago...the Dolphins to LA rumours were frontpage and fierce out here...it was about the same time Wayne H. took over the waste diposal biz in Cali...)

money talks, in this league just like all the others...and this being the #2 market in the US...the "LA Dolphins" would be a HUGE draw (name franchise, built-in recognition, built-in marketing prospect, MAJOR SoCal fan base...oh yeah, it could happen..)

No football team is a big draw out there in L.A. They had the Chargers (way back) they let them go. They had the Rams.....gone. They even had probably one of the best marketing prospects (as well as built in recognition) AND native Cali franchise, the Raiders, and they even let them go. Face it, you have a major commute anywhere you go in and around L.A. and the only football that the fanbase is willing to travel and fully support is college....not pro. In my personal opinion, ANY other city in the US deserves a shot at a franchise before L.A. gets another team.

the redskins spend alot of money and they are not very good this year, so we need to get people that fit with our cash and draft, we need to add talent and depth,

you obviously dont know anything on what happen here in Los Angeles with the Rams and Raiders. Just because us as tax payer are not willing to fork over money for a new stadium its not our fault. St. Louis gave Biatch Frontiare (btw who killed the owner to take over the team) a boat load of money 500 million in luxury seat revenue included a new stadium for them to go to St. Louis. Plus that her home town. As for Al Davis he was offered the same bull$hit from Oakland and that never went through. That why he tried to sue Oakland for 1billion dollars. Los Angeles will get a team and the NFL is going to pay for it not the tax payers unlike every other franchise that tax 800 million to their resident.

It only allows teams more $$$ to throw away on players. It's no more advantage to one team or another. We all get the same 7 mil. I'd like to see the cAP fall to around 80 mil!! :D That sure would shake thins up in Dodge!! :sidelol:

Do you want the Fins to fail so that they would come to Cali?

It sure seems like it.

If this Cap keeps going up like this alot of teams will nix the CBA. It can be nixed next year for the following year.....
