IT'S NOT LIKE THERE WAS ANYTHING TO PONDER:

NFL owners cut short deal struck with players' union: Until a new agreement is negotiated, the 2010 season will be played without a salary cap. (Sam Farmer, 5/20/08, Los Angeles Times)

NFL owners didn't wait long to exercise the early-termination clause in their collective bargaining agreement with the players union. They did so first thing this morning.

While free agency has been bad, the rookie salaries are a disaster. Somehow the only sports owners ever to triumph in a labor dispute forgot why they won: players are completely interchangeable--fans root for the uniforms.
