    I enjoyed listening to it Scott. a suggestion: pay attention to the “you know” as you used it a ton of times.

    Horse, glad I found you here,
    I know you were concerned about the owners being able to make a profit from their shaky NFL franchises.
    A ruling just came down from a federal arbitrator in regards to the NFL owners. “mischaracterized” over $120 million in revenue last year that they should have shared with players.
    That’s $120 million, you know.
    it just goes to support my beliefs that like most owners of a business, the more money these greed heads make, the more they want to keep for themselves.
    It also furthers my belief that this whole ticket price increase is completely bogus, you know.
    Sort of the spirit of the culture of the rich nowadays, you know.
    on the positive side, it should raise the salary cap this year by $1.5 million per team.
    Probably more than enough to sign Martin, you know.
    I know it still doesn’t make sense for someone who peruses the aisles of a store where every 10 minutes you hear, “Attention K Mart shoppers.”

      drdneast; never go to KMart or WalMart because of the chinese products over American. The answer is so simple and I have no clue why you are so bitter about owners making money when all you have to do is don’t renew your tickets. that sends a message. No difference from the 60 + people who don’t vote and we keep the same legislators in office and complain about it. Also why is it so importance that you have to prove you’re right. As to the owners not doing their part, Welcome to big business. Maybe Trump will listen to you that it’s not fair. Ha Ha!

    Excuse me, I like to make sure the fats are straight. The NFL owners “mischaracterized” $120 million in ticket revenue over the last “three’ years not one year as I mistakenly indicated above.
    But hey, what’s a $120 million dollars between employer and employee in a profit sharing revenue system.
    Mere peanuts.

    I just like to educate people with the facts, Horse, whether they choose to believe them or listen to wild opinions is up to them,
    As the old saying goes, “you are entitled to your own opinion, but you aren’t entitled to your own facts.”
    I just thught it was an interesting sidebar after our discussion lasr week.
    The fact is the owners got caught cooking the books so how can you trust anything they say.
    You are right about one thing, Chinese products are junk.
    Latest one is the fake wood floors they make are loaded with a cancinogen.
    Drywall anyone?

      Just hope neither one of you by a thing off Amazon, that guy poses of as a market place and then has a team of goons go steal and back door the successful small operators products and businesses. Especially you drdneast !! Now back to business and the Bucs , given Martins track record both the very good and very bad I think the only prudent move would be to Franchise him. Think about it are you comfortable giving him 17 mil guaranteed over three years, well you are a fool if you are. I would much rather give home 11 plus for a year and then a year again if need be or deserved. Licht has got to learn how to re sign guys ahead of time if you can’t do that you will always struggle to build a winner and retain your draft picks. Rich McKay built the bucs Super Bowl team not Dungy, Not Gruden and he did it by resigning people early in the process ( good gm ing). He also signed numerous free agents , not one , not two , not three, but numerous free agents with many of them coming late in the F Agency process. He also had some key trades !! I will correct the majority of you that talk about teams being built through the draft, this just isn’t true. The draft is very important but if you can’t resign your good guys early ,you will be paying to much and essentially are into free agency with your own guys eating up too much cap space.If you can’t find some starters late in free agency you are also damaging your cap ( Romen Oban, great signing) . Both teams in the Super Bowl were loaded with great Free Agant players and while V Miller was drafted the majority of Denvers studs were free agent signings. Please cut the crap about we need to build through the draft, that’s a farce , Doug Martin is a free Agent and is going to be way over payed for what he will be in 2018 . His option should have been picked up, seriously 5 mil when your projected to be 60 mil below the next year, seriously how in the hel are you ever going to build a team.Seriously , ok if he fumbles 8 times and has a 3.6 yard avg, you have a 5 mil rb in a year with plenty of cap space and a years better idea as to what he is. I like Licht but this just shows he’s in a lil over his head as of now.If Martin deserved to be resigned it should be taking place in Sept of 16 2016 not now as a free agent. You are not resigning your draft pick you are signing a free agent to cover your ass/ mouth with all the build through the draft talk. If you got two starters a year out of the draft in five years that’s only 10 starters and guess what over half will be heading to free agency in year four. You build teams through resigning star players before free agency , signing good free agents and having a coaching staff to meld them and supplementing through the draft.
