Im an idiot, so I am sure Paul Tabs has thought about this, and hence this cano not be done, but...........
what is to stop an owner who wants a guy but has to worry about the slary cap from paying him for some other bussiness that he is apart of........
Lets say Snyder really wants player X, but he can not pay him the money he wants or what he deserves.........so Snyer gives him a nice contract with the NFL but he also gives him a WELL OVER contract with one of his other subsidary companies? This way the guy gets the money and Snyder is not breaking any of the NFL Rules???

I'm sure theres something in the bylaws, pertaining to conflict of interest, such as when cablevision was trying to block the sale of a new jets stadium in manhattan, and the nfl draft was subsequently moved from the Garden, owned and operated by cablevision, to the jacob javits center.

I'm sure the "rules" and franchise contracts are written more carefully than that. (Lawyers are good at that kind of thing.)
The Redskins are a succesful, high profile franchise. What you suggest is an amatuerish attempt at cheating. It's wrong.
The salary cap is part of the game, like it or not. We can win within the rules. Dan Snyder may not have always made the best football decisions, but I don't think anybody doubts his business acumen.

This post sounds familiar.

But I could have sworn I saw Sanatana Moss listed as a beer vendor at Six Flags. :paranoid:

Why not just leave a suit case at the players front door? If you are going to cheat, do it right.

What is this, the Don King thread. There are many rules about this type of stuff. The 49ers were fined and Carmen Policy was suspended for this type of stuff. The Denver Broncos had draft choices taken away from them for this. They made illegal payments to guys on those two Super Bowl Championship teams. Like everything else, nothing happens if you get away with it. But I think anything and everything Danny Boy does will be totally investigated, well because he is Dan Snyder.

Teams lose money, draft choices, and executives when they pull these shenanigans.
The NFL can afford some pretty good attorneys. Tagliabue was one of them at one point.

Yeh this is the NFL we are talking about. One of the most profitable business in the history of the world certainly is pretty on top of people trying to cheat. Obviously people refer to the Broncos situation, but honestly I think penalties for trying to do these kind of things should be much more heavily punished as in suspension of a team for a period or something like that (well really that obviously just wouldn't work, but something severe). I personally wouldn't root for any team who was cheating to win...
