    The cap is one of the things that makes the NFL the best sport in the world. Love that smaller cities have the same chances as the big ones.

    You're kidding right? They are the OWNERS! It's a business and about profit and loss.

    If the salary cap were 25% higher, players would be paid 25% more, and we'd still have the same number of cap casualties.

    You've just illustrated that it really isn't that complicated. Some here still won't get it.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Exactly. It also means that even though we might gripe at Rolle being "overpaid", that contract is rather average in other sports. Look at Arod, for example...

    And we have the benefit of knowing a player is overpaid years after the signing

    Also in the article they mention LaVar Arrington and Carlos Emmons like they were surprises. Emmons had career ending back surgery and Arrington ruptured his achilles tendon and never played a down of football again.

    I'm trying to remember which comedian said that the New York Post is like someone that read a newspaper or heard a news story and they are trying to explain what they read to someone else.

    Agree. Though I am a Yankees fan I think the cap is a great thing for the NFL and forces them to replace players at a faster rate, cycling in younger players and forcing the older ones to go other places or to retire. I think the NFL has a more even playing field than all the other major sports and anyone can win a Super Bowl at any time.
