and right you are, of course:

Madden found himself in a sticky situation Thursday because he was quoted as saying he would consider accepting a salary cap, which the players have stated repeatedly is unacceptable to them. Madden said his words were taken out of context.

"I was asked if my union decided to go along with a cap, would I accept that and I said, yeah, I'd go along with my union," Madden said. "[The union] obviously has our best interest in mind. That's all I said."

When asked if he could envision the union caving in and accepting a cap, Madden replied, "No, not at all."
