    ???????????????????????????????????????????????

    * I read at CBSportsline that the NFL says the sides are meeting again Sunday. The NFLPA seems to be unaware of that, but it may have changed. Even though they didn't agree on an extension, this year really has about a 10 mill increase in da cap and isn't much different than any other year except in how planning and deals are done for future years. They really could get a deal done before March of next year and things won't be that different. On one hand I think they'll realize they're better off all around with a deal. On the other, money makes people do wierd things.

    I want the money to do wierd things, too -:)

    It's a great summary. THANKS !!

    An additional category and a minor correction:

    2005 and 2006 - Minimum Team Salary Total: 58% of designated gross revenues
    2007 - Minimum Team Salary Total: NONE

    note: that's an interesting down side to the uncapped year. Players may get more money from the big spending clubs but get LESS from the small market teams. Interesting.

    In 2007
    Instead of
    Transition players: Each club may designate one in addition to a franchise player
    it should read:
    Transition players: Each club may designate one transition player; each club may also designate a second transition player in lieu of designating a franchise player
    (reference: CBA article XX section 1 and section 3)
