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 pooty 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.


The draft and salary cap will never go away. If it does, the sport is ruined.

Look at it this way, the players currently CAN work for whoever they want. They can work for the NFL, or they can work for Wal-Mart. It's just like in the military, I chose to work for the Navy but I can't choose what command I have to work for. After my first tour I can try to negotiate for a certain set of orders, but the bottom line is they send me wherever they want. Players choose to work for the NFL and after their first tour they get a whole lot more freedom than I did about where they work.

This would have a major ripple effect. NBA MLB and NHL would all have to do the same thing. I can understand letting players be unrestricted free agents after 3 years but anything less than that and it will hurt the league.

I believe it would only effect those sports if the other unions decertified and took it to court. But I don't think they would do that because no salary cap mean no salary floor... and only a few teams giving out major $$$ which would mean salaries for most players will drop dramatically... IMO.

but on the flip side, the companies aren't forced to hire them. and if the companies collectively agree to not allow a monopoly to happen, then the smaller companies can force the hand of the larger ones. if there are only 8 or 10 large companies that would get all the talent, the majority would rule or threaten a split of the league back into two leagues and leave the big market teams in a 8 or 10 team NFL league. that would suck for them, thus they'd be inclined to have some sort of fair way to do business. i doubt there would ever be no draft. it would lead to the collapse of the league and football as we know it.
