In this week's episode of the Inside Football Podcast with BIll Polian, the guys begin a two-part look at the NFL Salary Cap. In this first episode the guys look at the process for how the cap came to be, from the ascension of Paul Tagliabue to NFL Commissioner, to the creation of the crucial "Pasadena 10" working group, which—hint hint—Bill was on, to ultimately what both ownership and the players wanted in an agreement. This episode is truly a unique look into one of the most complex periods in NFL history and provides an unbelievable amount of insight into how the Salary Cap came to be.
