    In Response to Re: The NFL salary cap:
    Oh, let me rephrase the question so that idiots can also understand. What NFL season was the first with a salary cap? Just to be clear, there was nothing about what year the CBA was passed, who passed it, who was involved in the talks, how much the cap was, if there was a minimum or what Bob Kraft was up to that year. This is the question. What NFL season was the first with a salary cap?

    The answer to your question is 1994.  However the answer to this question is irrelevant to your original debate with Rusty about whether the cap era is more difficult as a head coach than the pre-cap era.  In conclusion you are just trolling.  Sometimes I wish Rusty would stop feeding you, but I don't think you'd go away even if he did.

    He wouldn't.  Sometimes I wish other Pats fans would throttle this little virgin instead of allowing him to follow me around the board.  That might be a good starting point. 

    His life is here as a troll under many names. This is all he has and as long as a certain few continue to enable this little geeky tool from NJ, the more he thinks he belongs.  Just report each name and let's get on with it. It's clear who he is.

    In Response to Re: The NFL salary cap : The question is not weather one was easier than the other, the question is if it was easier to win games in one era over another while the rules were consistent for all teams of an era.

    Given that the purpose of a salary cap is to promote parity I think the answer is obvious.

    I'm pretty sure it was 1994.

    However, I don't really understand your point above. Arent' the rules consistent for every team regardless of the era? Salary cap or non-salary cap era? rules are rules. Sure rules have been changed over the years to be more offense friendly, but what does that have to do with the salary cap original question?

    is the question is it easier to win now or in the pre-cap era?

    The NFL first used a salary cap in 1994. That year, payrolls for each team were capped at an anemic $34.6 million.

    That wasn't the focus.  The focus was WHEN teams knew they had to start budgeting and that was 1993.  The new CBA came down officially that spring.

    Teams did't start preparing for the 1994 capped season in 1994 like our moron Jets troll dork thinks.    It just shows his immaturity and understanding of real life things. You dn't just flick a switch and make things swell.  That's little kiddie thinking.  That's "Bustchise".

    That was the point and why he's trying to act like I don't know what I'm talking about with the 1993 and 1994. Yes, officially it was to be implemented in 1994, but once teams saw the new rules in April of 1993, they were already taking steps to deal with the cap, prior to 1994.   As usual, he tries to deflect from the concepts as some Johnnie Cochrane deflection specialist in his little loser Jets troll world to make it seem like I am wrong or some crap.  He doesn't get it. And it's not a shock since 20 years later his Jets show THEY don't get it when it comes to the cap.  Priceless. 

    A bad team lke the Jets probably waited until 1994 to budget their roster, but BB was clearing dead weight away prior to 1994 in Cleveland.   By the time the Browns moved to Baltimore, BB had set the Ravens up pretty nicely with cap room and Ozzie Newsome, to this day, thanks BB for his guidance.
