    I am not sure what the big deal is. It was a negotiating ploy. It was well-documented that the owners did not want to "open their books" to the NFLPA.

    BTW, there are rules in place to prevent these owners from pocketing the money like the Pittsburgh Pirates. There is a salary floor in the NFL to go along with the cap. Not sure what it is but I think it is around 90% of the cap.

    Basically, it shows that the owners crushed the players union in the latest CBA negotiation. Having made a huge profit over two years, guys like Richardson had an enormous war chest going into the lockout.

    And the rich get richer. It's sickening quite frankly.

    A great depiction of what's wrong with this country.

    So what is the maximum that someone should be able to make? And what percentage should they have to give away to not make it wrong?
