Football 101:Salary Cap, Free Agency and Franchise Tags

Posted 12-18-2008 at 08:46 AM by hagan714

The NFL salary cap is calculated by the current CBA to be 59.5% of the total projected league revenue for the upcoming year. This number, divided by the number of teams, determines an individual team's maximum salary cap. For 2008, this was approximately $116 million per team. For 2009, a minimum 6% increase raised this number to at least $123 million. For all of you nerds out there, here is the actual mathematical calculation:

Man O Man I love the Summer Olympics

Posted 08-19-2008 at 11:34 AM by hagan714

Watching the Olympics

Today's coverage of the Olympics by the major sporting channels can leave you yearning for the old Wide World of Sports. Coverage is pretty lame to say the least. I understand the stress on American athletes but it leaves you wanting the old days when every country and every sport was covered fairly.

The Butchers’ Toll
Part 2

Now what did the Saints do?
Let’s face facts here. Youth is the main need for our defense. We rented a Defense now for two years and they were not really any spring chickens out there. The Saints’ went all out in FA and the draft for defense. Yes we did add another group of aging vets to one year contracts in FA. Well that is our standard mode of operation. What was surprising was the signing of Randell Gay , Bobby McCray and the trade...
