Think the whole articles is bogus at this point in time and the biggest word for me is SPECULATE.Almost as like he wants to be the guy that mentioned it first. Trying times for sure but I think w

Not sure teams could handle such a decrease.  Teams would have to cut their top 5 contracts.  The NFL will have to intervene

It’s definitely a projection piece.  Even if his number of 3.2 billion loss in revenue is accurate, the NFL can’t allow a 70 million drop in CAP when teams have signed contracts which extend into 2023

Fans in the stands dont matter. Nfl revenue comes from TV deals and that revenue is shared equally.  That is what bases the cap. Anything in the stadiums from fan is just petty cash for individual owners. With the extra regular season game and 2 extra playoff games, the revenue will be much higher.

There is 100 percent chance they won’t lower the cap after allowing all these deals to take place in the offseason. With player salaries guaranteed they wouldn’t have a league if they dropped the cap number, just more fear mongering from the media.

Of course but they agreed to the CBA last time that gave Roger all the power but yet they still filed a lawsuit and the injunction was granted. They have high powered attorneys for a reason. If there is a loop hole to be found they will find it. 

NFLPA pushed for revenue sharing agreement in 2011 and the last one. They assumed revenues will keep going up. Legally they can’t do much other than threatening strike which may not even happen. Now if they had a fixed amount guarantees instead of revenue sharing, they could have their high paid attorneys fight.

I seriously doubt they will cut the salary cap. I think by the time football starts they will allow fans in the stands. California might be a different story

It’s just an odd situation.  The product value remains.  So even if the CAP dropped to 150 million in 2021 it would go up to 250 million in 2022

The effect it would have on every team, even for a year is astronomical....not happening. Hop on otc and see what you gotta do to get teams below 150 mil for next year. Tons of stars will have to be cut and then there will be no money to sign them....it'll never happen.

 

There are only 11 teams under 150 million in cap space for next year right now and its just barely..

And I guarantee they only have 35 players under contract or less

Might be possible in some way to get there, but it wouldn't be possible to field a team.

It’s irrelevant.  Teams would have to cut their best players and they’d be left unemployed because nobody could afford to add them.

Doesn’t account for player salaries?

Ok, so subtract the $198M to account for 2020 salary cap... every single team is still making a $100M profit.

Then subtract that estimated $100M per team loss Schefter mentioned, and the worst any team would do is break even... with most teams still making a profit & none actually losing money.

Oh for sure. 100%. 

Also, this virus won’t inhibit future seasons and by all measures revenues may skyrocket as people flock to sports when they reopen. The cap would only decrease if the future outlook of the league was bleak. It isn’t.

This article is premised on the fact that ticket revenue, once lost, will not be replaced. I think that is a weak premise. I think the league and player's association can come up with a way make up some of the revenue lost at the gate. Every butt not in a seat is a butt that will watch on TV. There will be a strong case to increase the revenue generated from advertising and broadcasting. While some potential advertisers are struggling, others are swimming in new cash (for example, insurance companies).
