The Uncapped NFL?

Now that the NHL has a salary cap which prevents good teams from staying together for long periods of time, thus reducing fans chances of seeing dynasties and truly elite teams, it is interesting to look at other pro leagues CBA negotiations. The National Football League is the most profitable league in North America and has the CBA deal that is most owner friendly (and least player friendly). It expires at the conclusion of the 2006 season. In his state of the NFL speech, NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue, acknowledges the possibility that their may not be a salary cap in the not too distant future of the NFL.

It would be interesting if this occurred. The NHL owners often made unwarranted comparisons to the NFL during the lockout, claiming that its profitability was due to the CBA (its not) and would lose that argument if the new CBA did not have a salary cap.

Here is an ESPN article on this issue.
