I used to tune in to Rome back in the day, but now with Sirius, AM radio is such an after thought.

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

Sharper says he knows who the "snitch" is and said the player had a vendetta against the team. It's probably pretty obvious who it is if we just look at the teams through the years. Its someone who was not on the team last season (told the nfl about it last year), and someone who was on the team when the allegations began. I haven't done any research about this but Shockey and Brown come to mind as possibilities.

Vendetta against Reggie Bush, even though he's in MIA now? Seems something she would be dumb enough to do

.......evidently you're incorrect becuase if the NFL is going to fine your players take away draft picks from your team and suspend your head coach and bann your former D cordinator.....it's a big deal.

NFL.com news: Former Redskin talks of $100 bonuses handed out by Joe Gibbs


Looks like Gibbs 1.0 was handing out cash himself for "big plays". Granted, it was under the rules at the time because there were no rules regarding this.


Quote:
"In the meeting after the game, Joe Gibbs would come in, hed have a fistful of $100 bills," Starke told ESPN on Monday night, via The Washington Post. "And if Dexter (Manley) knocked the quarterback down three times, he would get three $100 bills. And Joe would pass the money out in the meeting, and we would have to duck."

Gibbs told the Post on Tuesday that such incentive-based pay was within NFL rules at the time.

"In my first stint coaching the Redskins, we did have an incentive program in place to recognize the guys for outstanding plays made within the rules of the game," Gibbs said. "Back then there was no salary cap and the incentive program we used was within the league rules. We had all kinds of incentives, including dinners at local restaurants, radios, the chance to sit in a La-Z-Boy recliner during team meetings and cash rewards. To be clear -- we only used rewards as a motivational tool and to recognize the guys who made positive plays in the game each week."

Yes. It's not like Gibbs 1.0 was warned by the league for breaking rules (and the rules were different) and then egregiously continued.

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

Not only was it legal under Allen and Gibbs 1.0, but the medical community didn't understand the repercussions of repeated concussions on players. My whole family was going crazy when Dexter Manley knocked Danny White out in the playoffs and I'm sure he got a "bonus" the next day. But I don't think anybody viewed it as hurting him, just knocking him out.

I didn't post that to say OMG LOOK GIBBS WAS DOING IT. I even said there were no rules in regards to this type of activity. I posted to show it's was/is a common thing.
