Need to get a compromise which helps this year, eg., Fletcher, etc.

Since we lost $18M this year, and $18M next year...i would settle for getting back next years full $18M, and for this year just give us half our money back and an extra pick at the end of the 1st round. Not likely to happen, but it would be a nice compromise considering the free agents that this potentially caused us to miss. GO SKINS !!!!

Even a 3rd and 4th....we honestly probably lost out on 2 players that could have filled a big need for us. Again, not likely to happen.

Looking at our recent history in free agency, the NFL probably did us a favour...

This could turn out to be a huge screw-up for the owners if the arbitrator finds in favor of the boys/skins (which seems likely). First, in order to get the PA to go along with their little prank on the Snyder and Jones, Wellington Mara and his team of d-bags agreed to give the players a higher cap than apparently the CBA required, by $200 million or so. Then, they penalized the Skins and Boys $46 million, and upped the salary caps of 28 of the 32 teams. Presumably, some of those teams will have started spending their extra $1.6 million by the time any ruling comes out. So, what's going to happen if the arbitrator tells Wellington to shove it up his crusty old arse, and now the Skins and Boys get to re-coup their lost $46 million in cap space? That will mean that the players end up getting and extra $250 million or so bucks out of the owners on a failed practical joke. Nice way to think this through, Wellington. Let me guess, you had nothing to do with your own wealth. You just inherited from your rich grand-daddy. Suck it, d-bag.
