        36 Million in cap space, wow that is a huge amount. I wonder if this had any bearing on them deciding to trade up for RGIII instead of putting in a bid for Peyton. Maybe they figure they couldnt afford Manning and putting a team around him if they lost so much cap space. </P>

              Unless the teams already knew this was going to happen (like during the new cba negotiations, I'd say this is going to get appealed. How can you discipline teams during an uncapped year? Seems like these teams must have known this was coming.

                  The NFL is taking away millions of dollars of salary-cap space belonging to the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins for front-loading contracts during the uncapped 2010 season, according to league sources. </p>

                  The salary cap is projected to be $120.6 million in
                  2012, but the Cowboys will lose $10 million, while the Redskins will be
                  docked $36 million in cap space, sources said.</p>

                  Dallas and
                  Washington can split the cap loss over the 2012 and '13 seasons in
                  whatever form they prefer, with $1.6 million each going to 28 other NFL
                  teams, the sources said.</p>

                  The New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders are the only two teams that will not receive a portion of the money.</p>

                  During the pre-lockout 2010 season, the collective bargaining agreement expired and the league operated without a salary cap.</p>

                  According to sources, the Cowboys and Redskins took
                  immediate cap hits during the 2010 season that normally would have been
                  spread out over the length of the contracts, giving them an advantage
                  that other NFL owners found unfair.</p>

                  The league took an abnormally
                  long time to release the 2012 cap number, due in part to the fact that
                  the league was trying to decide how to handle the issues, the sources
                  said. </p>

                  According to the sources, the deductions are not termed as
                  violations, but are part of a recent agreement the NFL and the Players
                  Association made to raise the salary cap number while preserving benefit
                  increases and the performance pool.
                  </p>

                    LOL, so the 'Skins now have no draft picks OR cap space to pick up WRs and OLs.

                    In a few years we'll be talking about what a great QB RGIII would have been if he landed on a better team.

                      people also forget that washington is going to get penalized from williams and bounty gate. i've already seen several prominent nfl analysts and commentators remark on this, and how the skins insured their picks by trading them bc if they lose 1rst round picks, they won't have them

                      if goodell doles out the penalties before draft day, washington may have to forfeit the accepted trade which would be so ****ing awesome lol...but if its after the trade, then either washington would lose their 1rst round picks after the scheduled traded picks are completed or they would lose 2nd and 3rds...washington is getting beat up

                        dallas is especially ****ed bc they were only 4.7 mil under the cap, even if they split the penalty over this and next season, they'll still be over the cap.

                          Dallas will use the June 1st tag to cut Terrance Newman which should save them $6mil right there.

                          I just think it's funny because I've heard nothing but we're signing Carl Nicks/Brandon Carr etc. etc.

                          Redskins just cut Atogwe.
