-- not now has told football -- from the NFL could be hit with a huge penalty as a result of a new lawsuit filed on a -- -- union.
The two sides agree that would be no salary cap in 2010 -- the players accused the owners of colluding to break pretty.
Joining us now is the -- agent Eugene Lee Eugene welcome back good to see you thanks Stuart I -- told that in the past the -- have often cited big time with the union.
Which means the NFL could face a big financial -- you say that went.
I -- -- were on that path.
The players have a tangible argument they have a very strong argument due to the fact that there was supposed to be no salary cap in 2010 the last year before the CD expired.
It should've been a tremendous boon to players in terms of increased salaries increased income but apparently and allegedly.
Teams colluded secretly to institute a secret -- 123 million dollars.
Case look if this strike is doubtful -- -- talk -- -- -- and I'm not used to this okay no laughing place.
But look if the union wins they can't want a billion dollars from the -- the -- they're seeking one billion dollars and can.
And story damages.
What I've been seeing in the complaint is that for NFL teams exceeded this alleged secret cap of 120 million dollars the Redskins and cowboys of the raiders in the saints.
The Redskins exceeded by 100 to another what a second that fourteens exceeded the salary cap.
Would they have the pale for everything that they -- -- just those fourteen would pay for everybody else ironically the fact that fourteens exceeded the secret cap.
Two of those teams were penalized by the NFL for exceeding the so called secret cap that's how the player -- came to find out about.
So would just those fourteen has been made to pay the billion dollars which the unions claiming oh no it would be the others manipulate it and really -- exactly and if they got the billion dollars with the players -- -- directly -- goes straight to individual plants.
I think -- be allocated equally we would have to see I mean you'd have to do some type of formula institute of formula to see which players were the biggest free agents on the market that year.
And then sort of allocate that way you're the agent eight NFL players of those who -- playing in 2010.
Those you've represented.
They come -- for some money wouldn't.
Distributed equally they would however I didn't have any free agents back then if they were free agents on the market in 2010.
I think those players would -- the most out of this so those players who have -- -- free agents in the year 2010 if the union wins they make a big windfall but he's a huge windfall.
A billion dollars spread around may be a billion spread between all of those people.
I think the NFL or the NFL PA when they try to calculator damages and why they're seeking one billion it's hard to extrapolate what you take the Redskins.
Who exceeded the secret capped -- 102 million dollars you take that figure new extrapolated by 31 other teams.
That is huge money.
So you'll all in favor of the fact that -- equities are you know office.
I'm I'm in favor of justice and that -- -- if it turns out -- my players get ahead I'm -- for can you tell me anybody who is full I'm in favor of injustice.
They haven't not has had a kind of really -- -- always a pleasure thanks just -- -- --
