Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Jock: I trust the opinion of Rich Tandler on a lot of matters. His view (and it's only his opinion) is that we shouldn't expect a ruling until well into June. Any quick ruling would probably be bad for the Redskins, as it would probably be a ruling that the case can't be heard by the arbitrator.

The bizarre thing at this time is that it doesn't even appear to be clear whether this was the first hearing, or the only hearing. That is, it's not clear whether Burbank will rule based on what he heard yesterday, or whether this was just opening statements, after which he may call the parties back to submit further statements or "evidence".

Given the fact that we still don't have much understanding HOW this process is supposed to work, I don't think we can have any idea HOW LONG either!

If I was you, I'd expect a ruling any time between now and next March! And if the ruling goes against the NFL, expect an appeal that will not be resolved until 2014!

It's been awfully quiet on this topic in the press.

Anyone hear any rumors?

I would think that if the arbitrator was going to dismiss the case, as the NFL wants, then he would have made that ruling already. No news is good news for us, I would think.

Just reported on sirius nfl radio that the arbitrator, Burbank, ruled in favor of the NFL and approved the NFL's motion to dismiss the arbitration.

The Skins and Cowboys are stuck!!!

Here is the blurb from profootballtalk:

The Cowboys and Redskins have lost at least one battle in their attempt to get back the combined $46 million in salary cap space that the NFL took away from them.

NFL general counsel Jeff Pash told Judy Battista of the New York Times that Special Master Stephen Burbank dismissed the grievance filed by the Cowboys and the Redskins.

Dallas lost $10 million in cap space and Washington lost $36 million in cap space, to be divided between this season and next season, after the NFL — with the backing of the other owners — found that they violated the spirit of the rules in their spending during the uncapped year. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Redskins owner Dan Snyder argue that they didn’t violate anything because the lack of a salary cap meant there were no rules — in letter or in spirit — restricting how much money NFL teams could spend.

But Burbank has sided with the league on this one.

Go to court, or at least threaten to and settle the case. Cowboys indicate they likely wouldn't go that route. But, who case what they do.

The Good Old Boys Network of old money and old school NFL owners have successfully spanked the new money and new school owners. This is an outrage but I would bet the Redskins let it drop now.

Horrible. There is no justice when Goodell gets involved. Mara must be loving this.
