    NFL Europa folds

    NFL Europa folds after 16 years, with '93 and '94 not having a season.


    Question

    1.What happens to the players in the now defunk league
    2. Does this count now on the salary cap of players signed
    3. What about the roster spot
    4. Does this also mean the compensation(spelling?) picks will be eliminated now?

    Re: NFL Europa folds

    It means they save $30M a year in sunk costs and NFL will not have to play in Europe. Heard the dollar slipping made it too expensive to keep going. No more Rheinstone Belvederes or whatever. Looks like football wil be just US and Canada only and never an Olympic sport.

    I honestly tried to watch several games, and as much as I miss football, I just couldn't get into it.

    I wonder how this affects the CFL? I bet they get an infusion of decent Europa players.
