Jerry Jones wants another Super Bowl - actually more than one - in Cowboys Stadium again. He's not about to risk that to get a measly $10 Million back on the cap when Stephen Jones can esily do that with a stroke of pen on one or two players' contracts.
For Sneyder it's different. He got hit hard with the cap. But that allowed him to take more of a chance trading away multiple picks to land his new QB. So he cushioned the blow of his much larger cap hit by having to sign fewewr rookies over a 3 year span. BUT, that cushion went away once his QB tore his knee.
While RGIII is expected to return, how would you feel if you gave up draft picks to get a QB, lost that QB to injury and are now having to manage him back from it, and all the while you have a big chunk of your cap missing that you need to plug up holes - maybe even at QB if the injury thing goes south?
Still, I don't think Sneyder is looking for a judicial ruling by suing the NFL. I think he's using the lawsiut threat to get the league back to the bargaining table so he can work out a settlement to get some of his lost cap room back.
I can't say I blame either Dan Sneyder or Jerry Jones for taking the stances they are each taking in this matter.
If you think about it, both are rreally just doing the same thing, which is looking out for their teams' own personal interests. Billionaires, I tell ya!
