I guess the war will start up again between these two.

On the heels of the decisions regarding salary cap penalties assessed to the Redskins and Cowboys, the NFLPA has fought back. They have filed a collusion suit in district court in Minnesota today, accusing the league and its owners of conspiring to set up a $123 million salary cap in 2010, the year that in fact was “uncapped”.

The league has responded by saying that the charges are unfounded, as well as not even allowed due to the new CBA, and they fully expect the charges to be summarily dismissed.

We shall see, but so much for the league and its players having a good relationship, at least for now.
