With all this dynasty talk concerning the Seahawks and how in a salary cap era this would be so much more difficult I was wondering why can't cap space be traded ? Take the Seahawks for example, they are a young and fairly complete team surely if their organisation thinks it best they should be allowed to trade draft picks to keep their team together by gaining extra cap space.
As much as I like to see league wide parity and turnover in playoff teams year after year I think the spotlight a player puts themselves in with great performances means a team can maybe have 5 all pros at most and even that probably means a few of them are on rookie contracts. If a team finds these players they should be given an option of trying to keep them together IMO.
I like the idea of a dynasty as well (excluding the patriots) a truly great team all others in the league know they have to be at their best to stand a chance of beating. As much as I'm glad not to see ray Lewis on my tv anymore It will be sad if the ravens team being torn apart after last season becomes a theme for newly crowned Super Bowl champs.
I don't pay attention to other North American sports but I am sure I saw it on moneyball, this made me wonder why it wasn't similar in football. Just imagine if the original steel curtain had been dismantled due to financial restrains.
Another small point I would like to ask, with all this talk of a british/London franchise (I personally don't want one) would it not go against league rules due to sports betting being legal over here ? Surely Mexican and Canadian NFL fans would b pretty pissed about being surpassed as well ?
Also if some kind person could leave a comment with the date compensatory draft picks are announced I would appreciate it thank you.
