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.
Exactly.

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.

Are we really still stuck on this?
It seems like many feel they have to stand on their soap box and pontificate.
This is the never ending story. I am so tired of it already. Fine and suspend GW severely. Enough grassy knoll theories as to who shot PManning. I knew this was going get stupid.

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

Lol, in my private thoughts, I was thinking that if I were a GM, I'd pay off hockey players to injure players on the Capitals because I hate them that much.

Gregg is a bright mind. Unethical, but bright, and I like his brightness.

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

Watching ESPN, wondering to myself. Why hasn't Jacksonville been pulled into the muck with Washington and Buffalo?
