Hey all, figured I throw a point of conversation out there since there's not much else to talk about and also because I'm interested in everyone's thoughts. Do you feel the NFL has the right idea imposing a salary cap on the league or would you prefer a none capped league ala MLB. This is a discussion/argument my wife and I get into all the time (I love being able to argue intelligent sports with my wife :) and I feel the salary cap is a good thing and keeps teams from becoming powerhouses like the Yankees. The team with the most money might not always win, but they have the most opportunity to win. It keeps parity in the league and any given team can win any given sunday/year. My wife feels the salary cap is a bad thing because it destroys teams. Favorite players end up leaving a team because that team doesn't have the space to afford to keep them (She's a Ravens fan and is a little bitter about losing Trent Dilfer after their Super Bowl.) It also allows teams to keep players who love the team and want to play because they love playing. She also loves the idea of a huge underdog stepping up to beat the heavy favorite which is more plausible in MLB than the NFL (Dimondbacks vs. Yankees). So what are your thoughts. I know that non capped might work well in MLB and not NFL and vice versa, but if you could have an uncapped NFL, would you want it?
