    Quoted Jerry Jones after the intermission break after 5hrs this morning to saying "I think we have taken a step backwards" in the negociating. Hurry up and get it done or call it off....lets get to the free agency already.

    lol i like that. Jerry Jones just wants to sign some players like we want him to.

    I bet you anything he doesn't want the cba getting signed.

    no salary cap? That helps the Cowboys, it doesn't hinder us. Less money in free agency this year...? That helps the cowboys, it doesn't hinder us.

    you're really not a cowboys fan if you want the CBA to get done.

    An NFL without a salary cap at this current time is the best thing for us in terms of keeping all of our young developing players. And yeah, it really %^$# the redskins this year.

    I'm psyched for the fact that it won't happen.

    I have been a strong supporter of getting the extension done. Maybe I am allowing my emotions to overcome my logic but the way Upshaw and the union have delivered their ultimatums; and have already secured an agreement for all the owners to contribute everything connected to the NFL, including the owners' grandchildren, into the pot and the owners that are successful are being taken for a ride; now, I hope there isn't an extension.

    Let the bullies running the union and the whiners from the small markets live with the ramifications of no contract in two years. If the small market owners didn't want to pay their part then why did they agree to give the union the store?

    How do you figure this? without a new CBA the Cap will be lower this year which will hinder us not only in FA signings but also in Rookie Pool. Also without a CBA you run the risk of a lockout in 07 or Strike. A new CBA benefits all the teams.

    The real deadline is next year at this time. We are talking lockout and strike a year to early.

    I hate to be a pessimist, but the lack of a CBA will actually hurt Dallas. Jerry Jones is one of the wealthiest owners, but he cannot compete with Synder, Kraft, Blank, and the new Owner of the New York Giants. I think we could see Witten, Newman, and James leave to the highest bidder.

    I think he meant we'll have 15 million under the cap and much more leverage in signing free agents than the Skins. They will barely get under the camp and won't be able to make a run for any premium players.

    If Jerry's not a billionaire, he's REAL close. Those guys may very will leave for the highest bidder, but it won't be cuz Dallas isn't prepared to dish out the necessary $$.

    I disagree! He can compete with those guys and will, especially after the new stadium revenues flow in. Plus no state tax will help him sign payers as well.

    Jones ca compete with anyone and once the new stadium comes, he will dwarf the revenue of all the other teams. There may be wealthier owners, but noone is going to spend their own money on players. They will only spend team revenue and we will have more of that than anyone.

    I think he means because EVERYONE will have lower cap as well. That means more cuts and more available players. Some may sign a very cheap 1 or 2 year deal just to stay in the game rather than sitting at home waiting for an uncapped year only to have the NFL forget about them.
