    I'm starting the topic, I'm giving the idiots a place to spooge themselves, and then I'm leaving the room. Have fun, hosers!

    I love Mark Attanasio, but he needs to stop bitching about this.

    Given the likely participants, this is the rubber-walled room in the insane asylum.

    Meanwhile, the NFL owners are trying to opt out of their wonderful capped salary structure.

    And if baseball puts in a cap to prevent the Yankees from spending, then they will most likely install a salary floor, which means many teams now will be under it, which means they'll have to increase their spending by millions.

    And such a floor might lead some teams to overspend on mediocre players, if managed improperly.

    All I'll say is this: I love how these fucking rich crybabies cry about the rules AFTER they get in. Hey assholes: THE YANKEES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN RICH, BITCH. Nobody pulled the wool over your eyes. If you dont think you can compete, get the fuck out.

    The parity Lewis Wolff is begging for IS ALREADY THERE.

    And the idea of Bob Nutting waxing pathetic about how the Pirates need a cap to compete is rich, given how they haven't tried a lick in 16 years. ""We need to find ways to succeed in the current economic environment, and we're not going to use the hope of a salary cap as a crutch or as an excuse." Sure you're not, you fucking asshole.

    And TSP is absolutely, positively dead-on: A cap isn't good enough for these assholes. The NFL is the most successful league in America and everyone wants to be like it, yet the asshole owners are trying to find MORE ways to ensure they don't have to try as hard as everyone else to make a profit.

    I'm trying real hard not to get into any more pissing matches, so I'm out for the rest of the thread, no matter what oop or simon may say to rile me up. :D
