One of guys on that Packer site I visit posted a link to a three part article about the CBA situation that takes a perspective I haven't heard before.

A very different perspective. It's basically about the CBA, NFL revenue sharing, salary caps and salary minimums and how they're calculated, what parts of team income don't go into the revenue sharing pool, and Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder among others.

Well, not so much Snyder but a lot on Jones, and a few others. Jones because it's a Cowboy's blog. Don't freak out, the Packer fans hate the Cowbums as much as we do but the writer has no love for the Jerruh and the article isn't a Cowboy-biased rant, if anything, it's close to the opposite. It's about large market NFL franchises versus small market franchises and what the author sees as a "broken" revenue sharing system which he also sees as the big issue in the whole CBA situation.

I haven't come to any conclusions about it yet myself-still gnawing on it and looking for more info-even though the articles have plenty of facts and figures-it's a perspective I hadn't really thought of.

It is a very interesting read in any case.

Wow, nice find Serv. Excellent breakdown, very enjoyable read. Interesting look at things. I tend to side with Snyder/Jones who say they are tired of handing out welfare to Ralph Wilson; on the other hand, changing that structure would destroy the league as we know it. To reward the rich where for taking risks and being inventive would mean getting rid of the salary cap floor. And if the floor was abolished, I can't imagine the cap surviving.

Seems to me they should be able to find something in the middle that gives a little more to the small market teams without forcing the big market teams to socialize too much.

That was really a very informative read. I only had a slight understanding of the revenue sharing that went on. I'm much clearer now.

Great read! Thanks for posting.

....In the meantime, ask yourself: why is the league so violently opposed to sharing the same percentage of revenue with the players that it has for the last ten years? I propose it's because the NFL revenue sharing system is broken, and instead of fixing it, the owners think it'll be easier to fix by getting more money out of the players than from each other.
It's good to know that I'm not the only one that came to this conclusion.
