If there wasn't a salary floor some owners could just sit and get rich of other peoples teams.
    I agree with the rookie salary cap for a couple of reasons.

    1) Prices are out of control for top 5 picks. Didn't JRus get like 30 mil guaranteed on his contract last year? That's about as much as a pro bowler.

    2) Teams that pick first are the worst teams (usually, however see New England) and often don't suddenly go from 1st to last (see NFC South) and hence tend to pick in the top 10 for a number of years in a row (see Arizona). What this does is force a team that is already struggling to tie up so much of its cap in a small number of unproven players, whom if they bust, will continue to keep that team picking near the start of the draft.

    Oh man I really hope they get this worked out. I think they will, but when money's involved sometimes people lose all their common sense.

    GiantsfanMike is right. Parity is why the NFL is the most viewed league in the country.

    That would piss me off so much. Small market teams would end up with empty stadiums every week knowning they would be on the recieving end of a trashing every week.

    The salary cap is what makes the NFL as great as it is. They better ****ing hurry up and get a rookie salary cap sorted out, because its a joke the current state.

    I don't really buy into that. I can't see it happening.

    I hope that doesn't happen; the NFL would start sucking like baseball.

    Solid read. I like what it says about the low revenue teams getting screwed the most. Like the Jaguars would not spend as much because well they don't have to. No salary floor. I was thinking the Pittsburgh Pirates of the NFL right there.

    Then again the Raiders, Redskins teams like that would just keep spending and getting all the free agents. Parity will be gone, lol.

    My guess about the draft ending would be because the CBA dictates the rules for governing it. So no CBA no draft? Even though that would be stupid. All players entering the league would be free agents to whoever gives them the most money. The league would get so top heavy it wouldn't be funny. The Raiders, Skins and Boys might be the teams to beat every year with all the talent they would sign.

    Salary Cap NO More...

    read this article....by 2010 there may not be any salary cap
    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08089/868971-66.stm
    i dont get the part when it says that if there is no more salary cap the last draft would be in 2011
    "When they vote to opt out of the CBA in November, there would be no cap for the 2010 season and the last draft would be held in 2011. While it's more an owner vs. owner issue, the players are watching intently and, at some point, an ugly labor situation could arise through a lockout or strike."
