The Bucs ate up $30.2 million of cap room with the signings of Carl Nicks, Vincent Jackson and Eric Wright....

How did they do that?

I did my best. They don't think the owners will do anything.

So what's the deal, are we fighting this, or what? I know they had a conference call with the league office, and their last press release said they were proceding as if nothing had happened. But have there been any indications that they will contest this in court, or are they just going to roll over and take it?

They have to be careful... they could damage their antitrust exemptions by going to court... this is probably a potential minefield for all owners...

Right, so if they threatened legal action, don't you think the league would have to back down?

You would think... except that there has already been injury caused to the skins... possibly to the Cowboys, as well. It's likely that this impaired their ability to pursue several free agents... so, how does Snyder recoup losses, if he doesn't sue?

That's assuming they're not really proceding as if nothing's changed.

The NFL would simply dis-approve any contract that would take them over the cap limit that the league imposed.

Snyder & Jerry are NOT risking losing the anti trust deal over this

this is not over, but ...
RG3 is now learning how to play QB in the NFL - Mike & Kyle did not help with the transition
