COWBOYS, REDSKINS LOSE THEIR APPEAL ON SALARY CAP PENALTY (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/05/22/cowboys-redskins-lose-their-appeal-on-salary-cap-penalty/related/)

"The Cowboys and Redskins have lost at least one battle in their attempt to
get back the combined $46 million in salary cap space that the NFL took away
from them.


NFL general counsel Jeff Pash told <a href="https://twitter.com/#%21/judybattista">Judy
Battista of the New York Times</a> that Special Master Stephen Burbank
dismissed the grievance filed by the Cowboys and the Redskins.</p>


Dallas lost $10 million in cap space and Washington lost $36 million in cap
space, to be divided between this season and next season, after the NFL — with
the backing of the other owners — found that they violated the spirit of the
rules in their spending during the uncapped year. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and
Redskins owner Dan Snyder argue that they didn’t violate anything because the
lack of a salary cap meant there were no rules — in letter or in spirit —
restricting how much money NFL teams could spend.</p>


But Burbank has sided with the league on this one. Mike Florio will talk
about what this means at the start of today’s PFT Live."</p>

Welp. It's over now. Time to get on with the season.

Was hoping for cap space back, but what are ya gonna do, right?

If this is truly a matter of competitve balance, then it's a good ruling. But in the same breath, if this is about competitive balance, then I hope the teams that underspent are targeted here soon as well.

Life goes on. Fortunately they are two of the richest franchises in the League and they will recover.

Doesn't JJ get under your skin Ntegrase?

Yeah, most days.

He's starting to cede more power to his son, Stepehen though. So I suppose we don't have to put up with him too much longer.

He'll still be pulling the strings though right?
Maybe like Steinbrenner did working from behind the scenes.

Eh. Hard to say. But he's releasing most of the 'football duties' to Garrett, Rob, and his son Stephen, as evident by the war room footage this past draft.

The spiritof the game is also physicality and big hits. Most of that is illegal now too
