Dallas Cowboys Salary Cap Penalty: Appeal Rejected By Arbitrators, According To Report

NFL counsel Jeff Pash spoke at an owner's meeting Monday and said the salary cap penalties forced on the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins were going to stand. Apparently, the attempts to appeal by both teams failed.

The Cowboys and Redskins were penalized millions of dollars for over-spending in the uncapped year. While the Redskins suffered the most from the punishment, losing $36 million in salary cap space, the Cowboys lost $10 million in salary funds.

The league penalized this year for creating what was considered an unfair competitive advantage going forward, dumping large base salary numbers into 2010 on contracts for wide receiver Miles Austin in Dallas' case, and cornerback DeAngelo Hall and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth in Washington's case
