My kick at a new CBA

Heh, if Brian Kilrea and everyone else can voice their two cents on how to best settle this issue I figure I would try as well. Feel free to throw bananna peels and the like at me..... Here it goes.

1) Lower UFA to age 29

2) Extend rookie contracts to 3 years with a hard cap on their salary depending where they are drafted (all figures the maximum allowed):
1st rounder: $750,000
2nd rounder: $600,000
3rd+4th rounder: $500,00
5th - 7th rounder: $400,000
8th+9th rounde: $250,000

3) Hard cap on bonus structure of $250,000 maximum for rookie contracts

4) Eliminate mulit-year contracts. No more than 3 years maximum allowed for any contract.

5) Eliminate punishing RFA signing restrictions but allow original team to keep their RFA's by matching 75% of offered amount.

6) Hard cap on salaries. Minimum $35 million. No maximum.

7) There would be a maximum salary for each "level" of players.
Rookies (ages 18-20): $750,000
Level 1 (ages 21-23): $1.6 million
Level 2 (ages 24-26): $2.5 million
Level 3 (ages 27-29): $4 million
UFA (ages 29 - up): no maximum salary but teams can only sign 3 UFA players in any given year

This is far wrose of then a Salary Cap, this is placing restrictions on individual salaries because of age which is discrimination, they would never go for this its pretty harsh.

Nope...every team would be expected to ice a team with players that make up a minimum of $35 million. Teams could spend as much as they want but because of the maximum $ for each player (depending on age) it will act as a drag on salaries.

Not age discrimination at all....it is a way to put a drag on salaries and help teams to budget and know ahead of time what their revenues may look like. On the flip side, it rewards players who play well when they are at their prime. Plus lowering the UFA status to 29 still allows for some of the elite players to hit homeruns in their salary demands while still being at prime playing age (instead of giving a 31 year old has been 9 million dollars).
