NFL Salary Cap Fiasco
Sports Fan Insider
In the middle of Wednesday night’s “Glenn Younes Show”, Glenn decided hash into the salary cap fiasco that the NFL now has on its hands. Andrew Brandt, ESPN Business Analyst, tweeted out “The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) figures show over 300 million of over unspent cap space in the NFL. Unfortunately no minimum league spending until 2017.
Glenn is a noted player apologist amongst listeners and colleagues, and these figures cement his opinions. He also uses TV revenue figures to put the final nail in the coffin. “Remember revenue has continued to increase and they got their new tv deals. ESPN paid the NFL 1.1 Billion dollars for one game a week. The old ABC deal was around 800 Million and the other deals keep going up, while the owners are pocketing cash”.
