    Stephen Ross and CBA

    Apparently Ross (along with Kraft from NE) are the two owners that are having issues with the current proposal for the new CBA. Just read it in Rotoworld. Not sure if this is will be a big hold up, or they just need clarification on a few things. Let's hope it's the latter.

    Given Ross's wherewithal in past football matters he really should just sit down and shut the **** up.

    Ross and Kraft are the only two to have been identified at the moment, they are not the only two.

    Rotoworld is blocked where I work but here is what is a silver of what was said:

    Breer reassures that neither Kraft nor Ross' concerns appear to be a "deal breaker" at this moment in time. Jun. 20 - 12:11 pm et.

    Ross and Kraft basically want a contingency that if the revenues go down because of an economic downturn, that the salary cap will go down so that expenses don't overrun revenue. The players have wanted, and seem like they will probably get, an contingency that if revenue is higher than expected, the salary cap will go up, so this seems to be fair to me.

    I always like when the cap goes up (every year) because the Dolphins can get more/better players.So obviously I am cool with the cap rising.

    But if the league is losing money, there is no reason why what Ross is saying should not be accepted.

    My only problem is who will be in charge of making these predictions? Because what was just a guess will now need more accuracy because there is now money on the line.
    I just want to win.

    Fair, but it begs the question as to why the owners are pursuing this angle of "pegging the cap" rather than simply negotiating a percentage revenue split. If you set a percentage then the players share in the upside and they share in the downside, and it's a lot simpler way of doing it.
