    I have been closely watching the developments of the CBA, scheduled to be extended or completely reworked by March 1. The current CBA contracts the following dollars to be paid to each qualified player for each post-season game played:

    Division Winner: $15,000

    Wild Card Game: $18,000

    Division Playoff Game: $18,000

    Conference Championship Game: $36,500

    Super Bowl Game, Loser: $36,500

    Super Bowl Game, Winner: $68,000

    If I understand the verbage correctly, and using the Pittsburgh Steelers as an example for this year, each player stands to make $140,500 in additional pay, provided Pittsburgh wins the Super Bowl.

    Oddly enough, these numbers may be a little light, as the current CBA reflects a maximum year of 2004.

    What do you get if you are a Steeler, your team wins the Super Bowl and you happen to have been thrown out of the wildcard game? What do you get then? :lol3:

    you still get the money. Even if you were on the inactive list, you still get the money.

    If you were inactive, but appeared in at least three games during the season or post season, you get half the money, if still under contract

    If you were inactive, but appeared on the active or inactive list for at least eight games, you get the full amount, if still under contract.

    If you are a veteran, and are placed on injured reserve during the season, you get the full amount, if still under contract

    If you have played at least four seasons, and you are injured during pre-season or in the regular season and removed from the active or inactive list, you get the full amount, if still under contract.

    If you have not completed four seasons, you get half the money.

    By contract, the league must make these payments to the player within 15 days of the game.

    Suspensions or other sanctions are imposed after these payments.

    It ought to be a winner takes all. You lose in the Super Bowl no money for you. That might make some of the games more interesting
