    Hmmm...maybe the NFL needs some help from the "stimulus" package (err, theft...) the Dims are pushing...???

    I mean...some of these dudes might have to sell one of their homes....

    It will mostly hit the free agents I think. The teams signed contracts knowing this could happen in theory. Some, probably to include MaHommes may restructure their contracts to take less money this year and make up for it later.

    I think they have always been role models for kids whether they want to be or not. The hero thing has just evolved over time as it applies to grown ass people. No different I guess than other entertainers in the modern world

    Could you elaborate? Do you mean 12% down from last years level ( which doesn't seem like enough) or 12% more than the actual contract indicates. ?
    I ask because I have said right a long that if the leauge bails them out I would watch even less FB. Beause
    1) This is acontract that has granted the players pay raises well above the COL raises many of their fans get. And now it's time to pay the fiddler a little bit
    2) Some of this decrease in revenues is BECAUSE of players and leauge actions. Kneeling for example. There other reasons of course, COVID, inconsistent officiating, players off field behavior

    Latest rumor is the league total cap will be reduced by 30 million dollars, from 210 million to 180 million.

    I think only the super stars make much endorsement money

    Somebody has to pay the price for alienating the fans.

    Thanks to reduced salary cap a lot of good football players will be out of football before the season begins.

    The "middle" will be hollowed out. The league will be all rookies and superstars. And damned few of the latter.

    I own NOTHING with a logo or a name. Have some really ratty football jerseys worn by me. One the numbers fell off long ago, but good for gym clothes.
