    2021 salary cap could decline

    Roger Goodell C, Unsigned Free Agent
    NFL Network reports the league's salary cap could decline for 2021.

    The cap been soaring skyward in recent years, reaching $198.2 million for the upcoming season, but with fan-less games all but a certainty for the fall, the league is facing revenue shortfalls. The league's media apparatus claims the goal is "to make sure the salary cap goes up or at worst stays flat," but professional sports leagues never operate out of the goodness of their hearts. The NFLPA could have a real fight on its hands this summer. The sides would like to have an agreement hammered out before training camp. Similar talks have been going extremely poorly between the MLBPA and Major League Baseball.

    I don't know why they would have a fight. How the salary cap is calculated should been the CBA agreement. Baseball's issue is that the want to cut salaries and prorate them. Plus the baseball union is much stronger. They don' t cave to anything and it will be they demise.

    Empty seats translates to loss revenue and the cap depends on revenue.

    Don't think many seats will be empty. The hoax has run it course.

    Goodell would not even mention a cap reduction unless it was a serious consideration.

    They have not lost a penny yet. Fans will be in the stands. Even if no fans show up. No NFL team will lose money
