Football - Our Passion

The beginning of football season is one of the best times of the year. We should be extra appreciative this year, because we almost lost it all.

Lance Z: Sources Suggest That The Salary Cap May Be Soft Or Non-Existent

With a little help from his sources, Chron.com's Lance Zierlein suggests that this salary cap may not have a ceiling at all, at least in its first few years. I tend to agree with him. What do you think? Could the cap be soft/non-existent? Do the big team owners have another agenda here?

I'm going to place my bet on practice squad at best.
