Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

Bounties for inflicting intentional malice on your football opponent are deeply troubling to me; that the Redskins were involved is extremely disappointing.

Ethics – knowing the difference between Right and Wrong and how you put that knowledge into practice is a core characteristic of an organizations identity. It reflects how you feel about your organization, how others view you, and in the long run it reflects the quality of those that will want to be a part of your organization. It is incumbent upon a teams’ coaches to teach its principles by example to its players. It is incumbent upon the players to speak out when asked to do what they know is Wrong. Doing the Right thing takes courage and strength.

Football by its very nature is physical and sometimes punishing; player safety is a prime consideration in all you do on the field. A coach should do all he can to develop a players capabilities and hone their skills. Seeking a competitive advantage through game strategies and analyzing opponents’ weaknesses is highly encouraged. Seeking a competitive advantage by intentionally injuring an opponent is Wrong.

The Redskins have a choice – do they choose to be good or do they choose to be great. For my part, I hope they acknowledge Right from Wrong practices and choose to be great; even if that calls for courage and has an associated price to pay…

Just my opinion and pardon my rant.

Experience With Bounties - ESPN Video - ESPN


This pretty much sums it up for me.


You are rewarded your whole life as a football player for doing spectacular things or for making good plays. It starts off with stickers on helmets, and later transcends to money at the professional level. I think people get the wrong idea about these types of pools. I don't think coaches(or most of them) are telling guys to maliciously hurt the guys, but if you knock them out (with a clean hit) than you get bonus. Listen, those guys going to hit the players just as hard whether there is no money on the line or not. It's just in the pros, the money takes place of a sticker on a helmet.


Nothing to see. Move along.


The one problem here though is that the Siants were told to stop and didn't. Now that is going to probably draw some sort of discipline.

Is there a link to that video.

Never mind I found the video and it just looked like one was hitting him high as another hit him low from different directions.

Peyton Manning's Injury - YouTube

Everyone keeps saying it was a legal hit. THAT IS NOT THE POINT!!!!! THE POINT IS THAT THEY GAVE BONUS'S FOR INJURING PLAYERS!!!!!!!!

Well in this case the coach WAS telling guys to injure the opponent- which is a big part of the reason this is such a big deal.

There are plenty of former players on ESPN, etc saying that they used to give/get rewards for things tackles for a loss, interceptions, etc. I've got no issue with that.

To me the whole thing is intent to injure. Can't go out looking to put a guy on a stretcher intentionally.
