I hear a lot about how players are treated unfairly because the team releases them before the contract is up and if the team doesn't honor the contract why should the player. It occured to me that this must be legal and the contracts have to be written where that is possible otherwise why haven't we seen a bunch of breach of contract lawsuits. I don't remember any by a player. I do believe it is silly the way things are done with the teams knowing full well they will not fulfill many of the contracts. But players egoes dictate they like to brag about 50 million dollar contracts when they should know full well it won't happen. Instead of a team salary cap I would like to see the leagure put a 3 year cap on salaries with maximums based on years in the league. I also would like to see star players with say 8 years on the same team being exempt from cap numbers so players like Favre, Rice and the legend type guys are assured of staying on the team they started with. This would prevent things like the Emmett Smith travesty.
