    if you don't know what the perimeters of the new cba agreement will be how could you possibly construct contracts now. I'm having to guess the teams that are handing out big contracts now to players are treading a tight line here. They could easily be very screwed in the future.

    The whole reason the owners and players don't have a new cba agreement figured out now is how much players will be allowed to make in the future. And a couple other things. But players salarys will definetly be part of the agreement.

    And I don't know if folks know it. But were in a recession that could easily go into a depression very fast which will change how big sports operates in the years ahead.

    We are in a recession, and it has had no affect on the NFL. The saints were even selling out after Katrina when no one had a house to live in nor a job. Plus they make a HUGE amount of money from TV. The NFL is damn near unaffected by the recession.

    I understand that the owners don't know exactly what will be in the next CBA, but they know exactly what they want, and can structure contracts to cover themselves in the case that the contract could screw them. The owners nor the players would ever push for a rule to punish teams to signing players, that would just be stupid for both side, and neither will even ask for that. So to suggest that signing a player could hurt them in the future is completely ridiculous. If that was a fact, the top rookie should get singed either, but they will because the crap the owners are saying is bull ****

    one of the big reasons for the possible strike or lockout will be player salarys. Rookie and vets. I'm pretty sure the owners want a system or cap to how much they have to pay players so they can construct a formula for keeping the league growing and intact.

    Don't know how it could grow bigger. But I'm sure the owners are thinking that way. Another thing that really needs to be considered is pensions for ex-players. And especially medical coverage for ex-players.

    You are right, and the owners know EXACTLY what they want and likely what they will get. Use that in the negotiations rather than refusing to even discuss a deal.

    And anyone who thinks that Owners or the NFLPA would push for any type of punishment for teams that sign players to deals this year, is completely delusional. There is no reason either side would push for this, and teams will likely have some sort of exemption for players they signed this year. If not, you wouldn't have 8-10 teams out there giving out big contracts like they have. It takes 75% of the owners to vote on the CBA, and that would mean it would need to be voted on by a couple of the teams who have spent big money this year, including the teams who are going to pay out a ton for their top 5 picks
