Will $50 really make a difference?

I read on Redskins.com that the O-Line is going to be enforcing a $25-50 fine for every flag against one of them and then the person who delivers the best block in the game will win the money. It is void if we win the game. My question is, with the amount of money these guys make a year is $50 really going to stop you from getting flagged? I am thinking not, but thought it was worth a discussion.

here is the link: O-Line Has Flags On Mind

Re: Will $50 really make a difference?

I don't think the amount matters, it's just the fact that the players are "policing" themselves and it comes down to a pride issue more than anything. I'm sure they have fun with it.

Cash money you win from your buddies in your pocket matters to everybody.

It is a war trophy -- and the wife doesn't get her hands on it.

With the way we were racking up penalty yards $50 x 10 = $500, which I still believe can buy a nice expensive dinner for two...maybe even a one night hotel stay too.

Wait a minute, does that mean the wife's paws are limited to paychecks? What if you win the lottery?

Re: Will $50 really make a difference?

its a good move, it's a morale thing, and it may help guys realize when they need to be more focused.

I like to use motivation along the lines of Spies Like Us: "For every flag, I cut off a finger."

Re: Will $50 really make a difference?

those fines are announced in front of the whole team, i think. maybe alittle bit embarrassing. the money isnt the motivator

Dockery would've gotten it last game for his "double-block" that busted a huge hole to run through. That was amazing.

Re: Will $50 really make a difference?

Re: Will $50 really make a difference?

Didnt Gibbs used to do stuff like this in his first time with the team, but he used like parking spots and stuff... It wasnt the parking spot but the self-pride and the sense of accomplishment for the player. Like stated earlier in this thread the money isnt the motivator its the sense of accomplishment and competivitness between the o-line.
