    Am I the only one that saw how much money the Skins and Cowboys lost??

    Cowboys $10 mill and Skins $36! They can spread it but they were banking on all that space to build around RG3 in free agency and now this is turning bad for them

    ...Love it!!

    I dont get it. I'm no Cowboy fan but was there a rule that said you couldn't front load a contract. It was an uncapped year so it seems like a smart move?

    I just dont understand what rule they did wrong.

    I hate the Skins and Cowboys but I really don't understand why it's considered cheating - kind of feels like penalizing the fat guy at an all you can eat buffet for eating 6 pounds of crab legs - not honorable but still within the guidelines.

    Seems less like cheating and more like intelligent accounting to me, unless theres an aspect of the story I missed.

    The NFL announced that there would be severe penalties if teams abused the situations and warned against it repeatedly. The Saints and Raiders(I believe it was the Raiders) were also in violation but not to as great an extent, since they were involved they do not receive any of the money that we do. It freaking rocks

    as i understand the situation here in dc, the nfl notified these teams several times after the cba was ratified that those front loadings of contracts in a"no cap" yearwere illegal.</P>


    of course it was too late then. the skins front loaded Haynesworth with 21 mil and Deangelo Hall with 15 mil. </P>


    they shouldve listened. im happy something negative happened to those morons!</P>
