Why I Hate the NFL - another bounty

Check this out re Seattle:

“The trip will wind up costing him $100 — the fine from his fellow ‘Legion of Boom’ members for failing to finish the pick-six.”

Seahawks defenders pool money collected as a result of on-field actions. Just like Gregg Williams’ Saints.

Here’s my favorite part, related to why the Seahawks’ bounty program–which I can call a bounty program as accurately as the NFL called the Saints’ similar system a bounty program:

“Such monies may be donated to charities (other than those sponsored or established by individual players) or other institutions, or used for a postseason party.”

In other words you can collect and disburse money for a pay for performance program, even if it’s called “Legion of Boom”–boom, aka hard hits–so long as you effectively launder the cash.

Seriously: read the language again. Players can fine one another for on-field performance, pool the money, and disburse the money. They just have to disburse it via a “team party.” I haven’t seen all of Breaking Bad, but I’m pretty sure Saul, the show’s crooked lawyer, would approve.

So let’s get this absolutely clear.

Bad, illegal, evil: A group of NFL defensive players fine one another for on-field actions and pool money and then give one another the money directly = suspend the head coach for a year, attempt to do the same to the players involved, and launch a massive, year-long smear campaign against the team.

Acceptable, sanctioned, fine, according to the commissioner: A group of NFL defensive players fine one another for on-field actions and pool the money and then use the money to hire a dozen strippers and a DJ = look at how hard those guys play! That defense is so tough!

Google is your friend, the person that wrote the article picked parts to make his story but failed to use the parts that negated his claim.

What I have read is it is not a Pay for Performance. Its a penalty for failing to preform, and the proceeds do not go to a player so it is not in violation of the CBA and Cap.

No Story here.

sooo, let met get this straight you can pay money to a player for "on the field performance" and as long as that the player doesnt physically get the money its not a bounty?, but if you have money paid to a player for "on the field performance", and the player receives the money personally than its considered a bounty? this is clearly a classic case of a cover up! this is what politicians do to find loop holes in the system. who cares if the player gets the money personally or not its the "pay for on the field performance" that cost the saints a shot at history a year ago! all i can say is "F" THE nfl and rodger "go to hell" goddell!
