This is one of the NFLPA proposals:

NFLPA's Proven Performance Plan Would Shorten Rookie Contracts,
Distribute Savings

Jul 01 2:55p by Joel Thorman

Earlier this week NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called the
implementation of a rookie salary cap a "critical" part of the CBA
negotiations with the NFLPA.

From the NFLPA perspective, they would argue that it's the team's
decision to pay this money -- not the players. They would also point out
that first round picks are guaranteed an average of $11 million. The
other picks are hardly that lucrative. Second round picks are guaranteed
an average of $2 million and all other picks are guaranteed a max of
$668,000.

It seems as if both sides are willing to change the current system which
currently pays the top 12 picks an disproportional amount of guaranteed
money and often traps late round rookies into contracts which they
outperform.

The NFLPA's answer is the Proven Performance Plan.

In a nutshell, it would shorten the life of rookie contracts and create
savings for underpaid players as well as retired players.

Here's how it would work:

First, it entails shortening rookie contracts to a max of three years.
This takes care of the problem that clubs often face of paying a player
picked high in the draft a lot of money when he ultimately ends up as a
bust. It would also allow players who have outperformed their contracts
to negotiate market friendly deals sooner.

Second, the NFLPA says this would save clubs approximately $200 million.

$150 million of this would go to a Proven Performance Fund which would
award rookies and veterans who signed contracts that are below what
their market value is. The NFLPA also proposes the remaining $50 million
in savings be devoted to retired players with NFL owners matching that
each year to create an extra $100 million per year for retired players.

Commissioner Goodell has previously said that if rookie contracts are
leveled out, the savings could then go to veteran players. However, the
NFLPA would point to the over $400 million in unused cap space as
evidence that the owners won't necessarily use any savings on the
veteran players.

The NFLPA's plan is similar to the performance-based pay system that was
in place before the salary cap went away. The difference is that the
total money would be more (last year the performance based-pay system
was just over $100 million) and a portion of it would go to retired players.

It's an interesting plan and, even though the league has rejected it,
it's a good start for both sides because, at the very least, it's a
proposal, which means they're talking. The only way a new CBA will get
done is if both sides continue to talk.

Right. It looks like a compromise.

I don't think they'll ever get the owners to agree to 3 years, btw.

I think both wan't some sort of rookie cap. but after that they disagree on
the cap issues.
the owners also want a lower cap
the players aren't looking very organized and I see the owners getting most
of what they want.

it will take the NFLPA a while to recover from the disaster that Gene Upshaw
was.

get off the bus now. The rest of us are going it for it right now in
2010.

And finally, finally, we got a leader and QB to lead us to the

And a defense. Revis would be a boon.

For my part, I just want 24 back home where he belongs. I frankly miss

The Manning injury was due to a mistake by him or Jacobs and the Giants OL
is not a healthy starting unit. I wouldn't assume too much. They also have 1
healthy tight end. As a Giants fan I am much more concerned about the
defense looking like they picked up where they left off last year with the
exception of Antrel Rolle and possibly JPP. No QB pressure up the middle,
sloppy tackling,etc.

What is it with these Christian athletes praising God whenever they win,
never mentioning his name when they lose. You never hear them say, "The
good Lord made me drop the ball" or "The good Lord tripped me up behind
the line of scrimmage".

George Carlin (I'll never say, "Rest in Peace" for him")

BTW,

I saw the movie, "Facing the Giants". Loved the movie, because I'm a
Christian and I loved that message, but, the whole praising the Lord
as though he cares who wins or loses is just plain annoying.

Kevin Turner was strumming his guitar about 18 months ago when the fingers
of his left hand suddenly stopped listening to him. Maybe it's arthritis
creeping in, thought the former New England Patriots fullback, or lingering
effects from many a football injury.

"I was telling them, make a G chord,'' he said, "and they wouldn't move.''

Turner, known on the gridiron for his punishing blocking, had been shrugging
off growing weakness in his hand, but now he couldn't ignore it. He had
surgery to fix the neck injury that ended his career, thinking that may have
caused the hand problem. But there was no improvement, and the weakness
spread to his right arm.

Testing recently brought a stunning diagnosis: amyotrophic lateral
sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease.

The 41-year-old Alabama native is the 14th former National Football League
player known to be diagnosed with the often-fatal and incurable nerve
disorder since 1960. That's a rate eight times higher than the rest of the
adult male population.

So many former players have been diagnosed with ALS that the NFL is
considering whether to provide benefits to help with their care, league
spokesman Greg Aiello told the Globe yesterday....

the rest of article is at the cite.

There was also an article just written and it questioned whether
possibly Lou Gehrig may have not had Lou Gehrig's disease. It reasoned
that blunt force injuries mimicked ALS in some post mortem brains of
NFL players. Last week or 2.

I read that article and it was very interesting. I wish Kevin Turner
all the luck in the world in the battle he is facing.

On the Jets first drive, Slauson looked very good in pass protection
until that last third down they could not convert. The DT on that
play just twisted his shoulders and got right by him and he contacted
Sanchez.

On the second offensive drive after the interception, Slauson had his
guy locked down well on all the passing plays. He only released his
guy once by design just prior to the pass so he could get out front to
help block. Also... The protection on the left edge has looked god
awful bad. Even Mangold blew an assignment on a play that had him
designed to run out to the left. Thus far the two best looking guys on
the line have been Moore and Woody. No chances yet to see Slauson
pulling...

Third offensive drive...

Slauson looks very impressive pushing his guy to the left on the
running play to bring it to 3rd and down. He tied his man up well on
the first down run. On the first down long pass play, Slauson had
EXTENDED excellent pass protection against the tackle. Good job on
prorection on 3rd down by Slauson, but Sanchez can not coneect...

Bunus observation... Thus far, the offensice play calling and design
has been "questionable"

On the first donw after the interception... Here it is.... Slauson
pulls... All the way out to the right. Convincingly takes the RT out
of the play. He did not look criticaly slow or awkward and he braught
considerable power against the RT

first series with second team.... brunnell at qb and slauson still
in.
well done by slauson on pass protection on 2nd down...
on thrid down slauson quicly shed the tackle and fired out to block
for the runner, but the play did not make it throigh the defense.on
the left side of the gut. drive continues due to 12 men on the field
and slauson pass blocks very well as brunell cant connect.

Next offensove series...

Excellent pass protection by slauson. His guy cant shed him.
Especially good pass protection on the 3rd down pass to Woodhead. He
maintained containment for a good long time. Bonus observation.
Brunell not looking to swift and offensive play design and calling
still looks lame. Lets hope Shotty is just saving his best for when
it counts.

next series.... slauson still in at the rg spot... pass protecting
well for clemennns on second down as well he should against scrubs.
been watching ducasse... he keeps his guy at a distance with his
arms.. more like a tackle than a guard where as slauson uses his chest
and gets in close. on the draw play on 3rd, slauson did well pusing
his guy to the right, but the center could not get his guy to the
left. end of series

Doesn't matter what they are investigating - if they uncover evidence
that a crime was committed they either follow the trail or hand it off
to someone that can.

The might be after Ball and dope but if they find that Lance murdered
babies and ate their hearts in order to gain 2 VO2 points then there
going to have to follow that.

Leave the athletes alone on this.
Let them retain the best medical advice,
and maintain patient-physician confidentiality.
If not that, then it is a simple sporting foul,
without interference from civil authority.

I do not, do not want to, do not want to see
third parties go after management. The players
and management can sort it out amongst themselves.

reconciliation. And Lance accepted because

Dumbass -

That's all true, but you said that LANCE isn't capable of reconciliation.

There also haven't been any leaks for almost two weeks. It's hard to

I assume that's your attitude about traveling to see a sporting event in
general? Super Bowl, Wimbledon, World Cup, Grand Masters, whatever?

Trek had no public or private comment on that, other than to say "It's just
a book title." Me? Different story. Let's see, you've got a good-sized
company in Wisconsin that's willing to put just about everything else on
hold in order to design and build bikes just for you, a company that was one
of the initial sponsors of the team long before there was evidence you'd be
making an historic comeback from cancer and win the TdF... and you write a
book whose title is "It's Not About the Bike"???

I have no idea whether it was a strategic move on Lance's part, essentially
a powerful bluff saying look, I can do anything I want, you've got to show
me a whole lot more $$$ if you think you can get me to shill for the
company... or if it really was nothing more than a title, something that
meant that cycling was metaphorical and not specific.

The relationship between Trek and Lance seemed to become much more formal
after that book came out.

Just had a family from Toulouse (France) come in to look at bikes before
heading home. They started talking about Lance; their son (looked about 20)
is a big fan and the dad knows everything about him backward & forward. We
spoke briefly of the substantial disconnect between the French press and the
public, but also acknowledged that the best thing Lance ever, in terms of
assuring a (relatively) positive legacy in France, was his "heroic" loss in
2009.

A world that thinks differently than rbr believes they should think. Or says
they think. Who knew.

Believe it or not, I understand that. Virenque is their "everyman" who has
failed in a big way, and brought himself back up. They worship that sort of
thing. The press is all about individual epic battles, against the elements,
against another individual, against ones own personal demons.

I've written previously of how I stumbled across the hotel complex where the
teams were staying in Bourg en Bresse some years ago. A pretty big crowd was
gathering outside, waiting for riders to come out and sign autographs. Few
did. But the crowd waited. For whom, I had no idea. And then Virenque
emerges. You have no idea how he can work an audience. He kisses the women,
he poses with their babies for photos, he engages in friendly conversation,
he smiles. In short, he is charismatic beyond belief in such situations.

I cannot think of an American parallel.

Seriously? I'm not so sure. I don't think Clinton hit the bottom quite so
hard. Even at its worst, he still seemed to be made of teflon. He can only
wish that she had been (since teflon doesn't hold stains).
