    That last line is probably good news for Pats fans. Two teams who wanted the kind of handouts that Kraft was against giving were unhappy with the deal.

    NFL | Owners approve new labor deal
    Wed, 8 Mar 2006 17:41:25 -0800

    ESPNews reports NFL owners have approved the NFLPA's offer for a new collective bargaining agreement. The extension will last six years and take the league through the 2012 season. It is unknown what the salary cap will be for the 2006 season, but it will be higher than the previously reported $94.5 million.

    do teams still have until 11 to get under the new cap, whatever it is? Maybe that is mute because most of the team are within 10mil of the old $94 mil cap anyway.

    They just announced the new cap of about $104 million.

    I guess they still do have until 11.

    I will be the first to ask......If my math is right this puts the Pats 14 million under the cap before they cut anyone else. Does this mean they bump up the offer to Adam?

    Who knows what goes through the mind of BB. Givens just got very rich. Neal? Seymour extension? Other FA?

    I'm logging out before my head explodes.

    Earlier reports said if there was an agreement that FA would be postponed
    until Friday.

    Well they usually say the devil is in the details so it will be interesting to see what swayed 30 to vote yes with just Brown and Wilson voting against. Hopefully that is an indication that while the union fleeced the owners perhaps the league didn[t fleece our Mr. Kraft.

    I do hope they haven't opened pandora's box where the NFLPA is concerned going forward though because if this deal ONLY runs through 2012 it will be time to "reopen" the negotiations in just 4 years. :eek:

    Six years sounds like a time for us to pick up 3 more Lombadis.

    You mean the teams that reside in Ralph Wilson Stadium and Paul Brown Stadium are upset that other teams that have sold their stadium naming rights for hundreds of millions to finance the projects won't share more of their revenues?

    Imagine that!!
