Cowboys not getting that $5 million back on cap

Not surprisingly the Cowboys and Redskins are not getting their salary cap penalties overturned, read here.

An NFL official says that an arbitrator has decided to let the league’s salary cap reductions against the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins stand.

NFL executive vice president Jeffrey Pash said Tuesday at owners’ meetings in Atlanta that arbitrator Stephen Burbank ruled in the league’s favor in the salary cap dispute.

The NFC East rivals were penalized for overloading contracts in the 2010 uncapped season despite league warnings. The Redskins lost $36 million over two years and the Cowboys $10 million.

Roger Goodell just about does whatever he wants these days. The owners created a monster and now they have to deal with this egomaniac. The fact that he told Sean Payton he could not talk to anyone in the NFL for a full season tells you how mad this man really is these days.

    Goodell works for the owners and the 29 or something others were the ones lead by John Mara who singled Jerry and Synder out.

    If it got over turned it might have pointed a finger at other owners for collusion. NFLPA would have loved that, or at least you would think they would. Didn’t expect it to be overturned as crazy as it all seemed.

    This is bull if the league had an issue they should have done it when it happen not a year later. John mara is just trying to make it difficult for the competition. Goddell has gone mad with power. He fines, suspends, whoever he wants, whenever he wants with no authority or jury. Its just crazy but this is what demaurice smith and players wanted and now a year later after an agreement , the players are having problems with what they negotiated

    The penalties have nothing to do with Goddell, it’s John Mara and the other owners struck a deal with the NFLPA to keep the salary cap from being reduced so they colluded to fine Dallas and Washington to pay a fine to keep the salary cap from reducing
