Default NFLPA Management wants lockout in 2011

Quote:
This week some 250 agents (Certified Contract Advisors) will attend the first NFLPA 2009 Agent Seminar in Indianapolis and get an update on the CBA, player tax issues, group licensing and other important topics. Acting Executive Director Richard Berthelsen will brief the agents on the upcoming expiration of the CBA after the 2010 season, and will review changes that will occur in going from the last capped year in 2009 to the uncapped and final year of the CBA in 2010. He will also review the recent economic report by Chicago Partners, which shows substantial profits and franchise value growth for NFL franchises. The group will also get a strong dose of what’s needed to prepare for a possible lockout in 2011, which still looms as a possibility if some of the more management extremists have their way.

can everyone now just realize that the idea of a cap in 2010 is and has been nonsense. the cap free year was a done deal like almost a year ago and even if they would have negotiated a new CBA the day after the deadline, 2010 would have still been an uncapped year...much less a year after the fact.

the sad thing is neither the owners or the players wanted an uncapped year but they both got greedy and couldn't come to terms. upshaw's death didn't help things any either. it's created a vacuum of player leadership and made the players focus more on choosing a new leader than negotiating a new deal.

this whole thing could get ugly and i wouldnt be surprised at all if there is a work stoppage/strike situation...

This is for those of you who read this. It's pointless to try and communicate with Second Honeymoon, particularly about this. He's been shown so much evidence that this statement isn't true but refuses to believe it.. For everyone else,

IF the league and union come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement before the start of the 2010 season then there will NOT be a cap. Only if no agreement is reached, will next season be uncapped. Please ignore anything further that Second Honeymoon has to say about this. He is dead wrong but it's pointless to argue with him about it.

Interesting bit of info, looking towards 2011....

Assistants’ contracts reflect possible stoppage in 2011
Posted: Adam Schefter | Adam Schefter

For all the information that flowed through Indianapolis this weekend, none was any more startling or alarming than the one regarding the state of the game.

This offseason, more than 40 percent of the assistant coaches in the league changed teams, a stunningly high number, according to numbers that the coaches association keeps. That in itself takes a moment to process. But the kicker to it is even more ominous.

Virtually none, if any, of the assistant coaches who signed contracts this offseason were given deals that extended into 2011, league sources said. Each was given a two-year contract for 2009 and 2010, but nothing for 2011, when the league faces the possibility of a work stoppage.

For now, 2011 seems a long way off. But already the date is at the forefront of the owners’ and coaches’ thinking.

So is an "uncapped" year all that bad? Would it be worse for players than it would for actual ball clubs?

I forget where I was reading about this but from what I remember, it's estimated that upwards of 200 players would not be able to hit the free agency market. Every player from the 2005 draft that signed a 5 year contract and every player from the 2006 draft that signed a 4 year contract would miss out on free agency and become restricted free agents.

Ontop of that, teams will have the ability to use 1 "franchise tag" and two "transitional tags". So none of the young players that have less than 6 years of nfl service would be able to leave via free agency and the top 3 players on a team available for free agency could be tagged and kept on the team.

So now that the available number of free agents is that much more limited, certains teams that reach the playoffs may have restrictions placed on their ability to spend in free agency.

Seems to me that young players looking for their pay day will have to wait longer... I don't think they'll like that.
