Sweet!!

When Drew's deal was done, one of the writers said the annual increases in cap hits would be offset by the increases in the salary cap. Looks like he was right.

Loomis is looking pretty smart once again.

We shall find out shortly.. The Cap was set on the following dates in previous years. Free Agency starts Mar 3rd and we have to be under it by Mar 11, so "it" is coming soon.

2013 Feb 28
2012 Mar 11


Screw it! let Jimmy go and use the extra cap space to make this a better team in all areas.

I chuckle at the driving force behind it.. Smith needs to get reelected, and Goodell has him in his pocket.

You are corrupt, and you are corrupt, and you are corrupt.....

Bad news: Players will want to get paid more

Haven't we gone over this before?

The league office does not pay taxes, all 32 teams do (collectively around 400m/year). If the league office lost its status it would only pay another 10m on top of that.

Here, a little something to read.
NFL explains that it does indeed pay taxes | ProFootballTalk

Perhaps you would rather the league office pay taxes and stop their charity work?

Something you may not know:
The Saints owe their team to the NFL's tax exempt status. Senator Russell Long bartered the franchise for tax exempt status and a no antitrust ruling when the NFL and AFL merged.

Just because your credit card has a limit increase, does not mean you need to max it out... unless you're in Washington DC.
