And what if there’s no draft? “You go back to a system pre-1936 where the NFL is recruiting on college campuses,” NFL executive vice president of communications and government relations Paul Hicks said. “Every team is going to be after Cam Newton. I’m not sure that college football is ready for the NFL to begin recruiting its players.”


That would be interesting having NFL teams recruiting college players. Small market teams would have a tough time getting the superstar players.

It would be trash.

There's a reason why the MLB is in the situation it's in. When you have the league divided between the "Haves and the Have-Nots", then it becomes stale and unexciting.

It would be the worst possible thing for the league.

Won't actually happen, it's a bargaining chip.

But Can't it??? If this stays in the courts and they rule that the NFL is acting as a illegal monopoly wouldn't that force each team to act as an independent entity?

If so then you can't hold a draft or anything because that would be collusion??

The longer this stays in courts, the more of a chance they can rule the future of the NFL based on law, and not common sense.

That is exactly what they want. They feel it restricts players....and it does. When anyone else comes out of college they can be recruited by any employer they want. Whereas the NFL forces the top talent to be on a shitty team for X amount of years. I love the draft and hate what the players are doing but they have a very legit and maybe legal argument to stop the draft.

Also they are going to challenge the Tags which again restricts player movement.

Bottom line every person in America should have the right to work for whomever they want and the players are restricted in that regard esp with no other league paying anywhere near what the NFL does, existing.
