WOW!! After reading the link posted by 9er fan, and realizing the link is to a NY site (which would be just a little bit biased), I really think the NFL has a problem! This kind of thing could be the downfall of the entire NFL Empire, and destroy civilization as we know it!
Back to reality -- I'm thinking there may have certainly been a conflict of interest there, and that maybe the arbitrator himself, should have excused himself from the case. I must now lay the blame on the arbitrator -- bad, bad boy!
On to a different subject, and my take on Snyder. He is not my favorite owner, but I do like the fact that he is willing to spend money to try to win. IF his team doesn't jell this year, he goes out and tries to make them better. I joke about all his signings, but if I were a fan of the team, I would like the fact that he is trying to improve the team, unlike MANY other owners, who are happy just to field any old team, and come away with three victories each year! I'm just wondering how all these signings will affect his salary cap in the next few years!
