Arbitration Rejected

Looks like all those Redskins fans that were counting on an extra eighteen million in cap next year, are going to have to go suck on a great big lemon. Jeff Darlington of tweeted today that the arbitrator granted the NFL’s motion to dismiss the challenge filed by Redskins & Cowboys on the salary cap situation.

Capgate Photoshop: The Three Stooges

In honor of the three-headed monster that were kind enough to put together the whole concept of hitting the Washington Redskins with a $36 Million cap panalty and the Dallas Cowboys with a $10 Million penalty – I wanted to pay visual homage to this fair and impartial trio.

Of course on the left we have Roger Goodell – the Commish – the brainchild so to speak. I admit that due to many recent events, it may seem difficult to put ‘brain’ and ‘Roger Goodell’ in the same sentence, but he is the figurehead of this whole mess.

Rare Animal Sighting At Owner’s Meetings

There is plenty going on at the NFL Owner’s meetings in Palm Beach, Florida right now – what with the cap scandal, some rule changes, and the general hubbaloo of the meetings – a very important happening could have been completely missed, were it not for the crack reporting of THN’s own Lennie Pigsquarelli.

He was on scene today to capture what we believe to be the very first ever photograph of the ever-elusive, and thought-to-be-extinct, Mara Weasel. The Long Islandus Mustela was believed to have died out around 1694, when a witch turned them all into snivelling little toads, but apparently the spell could not last forever. This photograph is proof of ecologists worst fear, that not only is the Long Islandus Mustela still in existence, but able to migrate south for the winter.

Hog Wire: Tuesday

There isn’t a lot going on in Redskins Nation right now, at least not much that wasn’t going on for the last week anyway. Here are a few non-updates:

London Fletcher – Zip. Zilch. Nada. Donut. So stop asking me. There isn’t any new news, but frankly, every day that Fletcher is a free agent, oddly, both sides gain leverage. London gains leverage because with Curtis Lofton going to the Saints, there really aren’t a lot of options left in free agency at inside linebacker. The Redskins gain leverage because there obviously aren’t a lot of other teams throwing money at Fletcher, or he may have already departed. Unfortunately that means that the two may have moved into a stalemate. It’s easy to say, “Give him more money,” but the Redskins have little to spare after the cap penalty. Something creative needs to be done cap-wise because with what will likely be a fairly short-term deal of 2 or 3 years, there isn’t any time to pro-rate out bonus money. Time shares on Dan Snyder’s yacht?
