    How rich do you guys want these players to be? The 1st rounders already make more with their first contract than most members on sherdog will in their entire lives.

    I like watching football as much as the next guy but pro athletes seem to make more than enough already. Not to mention they blow it all and go bankrupt within a few years.

    Now you are encouraging them to go on strike for even more? That should help the already declining viewership I'm sure.

    Some owners already have an issue paying players because they have no other revenue outside of their team. Liquid assets aren't just siting there. But yeah, I'm sure doubling the salary cap and fully guaranteeing contracts won't be a problem.

    Why do you think your boss doesn't just pay you and everyone you work with double?

    I guess the players can find another sport that pays them millions then.

    The owners of my company make significantly more than I do. If they suddenly doubled everyone's salary I doubt I'd have a job much longer.

    But you're small time and easily replaceable. If you directly contributed to your company making money you would want more.

    The better you perform the more money you make? Almost like any other job?

    You're a rough couple of quarters away from the unemployment line. There's nothing about you that's irreplaceable, except your charm, of course.

    Should NFL players make more given the revenue generated by the sport?

    Yes

    Should it be factored with the size of teams' rosters and the inherent injury concerns of the sport?

    Yes

    Its not an easy problem.

    Funny that nobody has mentioned the cheerleaders. They literally lead the cheers in the stadium and they get nothing. They have a similar shelf life as well. Fucking disgraceful.

    Not at all. I'd be behind more in guarantees, definitely. Jacking up the cap isn't a feasible solution for most teams.

    This sounds like a pretty good solution, but that money still counts against the cap, right? Even if spread out over the course of a contract that means GMs would need to be Affleck-tier savants [The Accountant] if theyre going to operate under the current cap situation

    I have no idea.

    Do guaranteed contracts still count against an NBA team's salary cap when the player isn't on the roster?

    If so, I'd guarantee it wouldn't be long before everyone crying about how underpaid NFL players are would change their tune when they're still paying Carr's $150M for the next three seasons after he retires due to feels.

    I didn't say perform, but regardless are NFL players easily replaceable? They currently receive somewhere between 46-48% of NFL revenue where NBA players receive 50-51%. I'm sure the owners can afford an extra point or two since the rising values of their team certainly makes up for the difference.

    I'd be curious to see how that extra 2-3% is spread across a 53 man roster. Do the math, Revo.

    The rising team values means dick when it comes to paying players, spending money on facilities, equipment, and all the other overhead unless it's translating into liquid revenue, right?
