Some CBA Notes


I’m going in to get wisdom teeth taken care of, so this may be the lat post for a few days.

Recently, I’ve had a lot of people ask me about the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement that expires after the 2009 season, which would create an uncapped year for 2010. Most NFL fans cringe at the thought of an uncapped year as they feel the NFL would just be turned into MLB. However, the changes are deeper than just the thought of Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder dropping cash everywhere a la George Steinbrenner. It’s more than that. But unfortunately, I do not know nearly enough to fully explain it, which is why I have some of these links for you to read and hopefully get a better idea of what is going on:

Brian from PhinPhanatic has done a pretty good job putting together a post outlining the basics of everything.

Pat Kirwan from NFL.com has two posts, one from six months ago and then another from eight months ago that have a look ahead to what the 2010 season holds for everyone.

And finally, Kirkendall over at Cincy Jungle, the Cincinnati Bengals blog on the SB Nation network, has a basic Q & A session concerning the uncapped years as well.

Hopefully this will keep all you readers occupied and informed until I come back.  Thanks!
