The NFL should know better than to pist the Dallas Cowboys off. That's a big No! No! In recent years the Dallas Cowboys a large market team (2nd richest sports franchise in the world) has had to share the wealth with small market teams to create "parity" in the league. We haven't sniffed a Super Bowl since the mid 90's as a result. The league will pay dearly when the big markets finally tell the commish to screw the small makets.

Citing sources, ESPN.com reported the Cowboys will lose $10 million and the Redskins $36 million from the projected $120.6 million salary cap. NFL.com said teams were warned not to push spending into the uncapped year as a way getting around future salary caps.
The Cowboys have said they followed the rules, while the Redskins say they were not made aware of any adjustments to their salary cap.

I am just a bitter Cowboys fan...I have to find someone to blame for the Cowboys lack of success over the last decade...Really! Parity is good for the league but some time I wish there was no cap. I don't mind RGIII going to Redskins...

We should be thankful for the cap...else JJ would trade for another crappy receiver and give him a mega deal and.....oh btw throw in a few draft picks like its nobody's business.
We are too football crazy not to pay/watch the games. Cap space or no cap space, I doubt if this year is going to be "the year".
I am doubting now but I am sure I am crazy enough to be pumped up by training camp!

Don't the Boyz and 'Skins have wayyy too many front office folk to know this stuff. These r not the only 2 profoitable temas in the league. If others can stay under and win....why not us?

And that's the problem - if the fans quit paying, Jerry would fix it fast.
