You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

Those teams are the Cowboys, the Redskins, the Eagles, the Buccaneers, and the Patriots (more to the point, the owners of the teams). However, if the other 27 teams vote for this the five listed here would be outvoted.
stupid rich teams. those teams want no salary cap so they can start buying championships instead of earning them. thats what makes baseball awful.
Kudos to Leber for the amazing sig and to Metroid for the userbar and making them both fit 2008 and 2009 Defunct Dynasty League Champion

Feelings about how FA, no cap, and guaranteed contracts changing the power structure of baseball aren't totally right. The Yankees historically have always outspent other teams in baseball and had the advantage in player procurment.
Football is different. Teams who have cheapskate owners: Cardinals, Lions, Iggles to name a few, will suffer. The difference is in the revenue sharing. Ticket sales are cream in the NFL. TV contracts are so lucrative that it is the primary source of money. This means that all teams have a very solid financial basis on which to operatre. There are, in essence, no small market teams. It will be up to the team owners to decide if they want to pocket the cash or use it to field the better team.
i always see you calling the Fords cheap, but what are you basing that on? they just built a new stadium, usually pay players fairly (they dont overspend and end up in cap hell like some teams), paid $25 mil for a coach and axed him halfway through, pay Millen a hefty salary
they might be incompetent as far as running a football team (or a car company), but i never get the impression they dont want to spend money on the team
In recent history they built a stadium that was mostly funded by Ford dollars, but by building the stadium they increased the value of the franchise greatly and will no longer have leasing issues. It was a smart economic move that will save them money now and in the future. They let Jeff Hartings go to Pittsburgh becuase they didn't want to give him another $100,000 bucks. That's cheap.
You need to remember that the only reason they spend as much as they do on players is because of the cap. Before the cap came into being the Lions never came close to spending the money that other teams were.
I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
