Joe Gibbs used to hand out $100 bills for knocking down QBs
 
“Let’s be clear: the reason that the Hogs did that Hogs Night Out poster…was, in the meeting after the game, Joe Gibbs would come in, he’d have a fistful of $100 bills,” Starke said on ESPN 980, as transcribed by DC Sports Bog. “And if Dexter knocked the quarterback down three times, he would get three hundred-dollar bills. And Joe would pass the money out in the meeting, and we would have to duck.

“Dexter only played probably three plays a game, because he didn’t play the run, all he wanted to do was the rush the passer. So he’s getting three hundred-dollar bills. If Art Monk got two catches…there’s all kind of reasons that guy got these hundred-dollar bills. But offensive linemen, if they had a perfect game — that meant that John [Riggins] ran for 100 yards — he would get some money but we didn’t get anything. That was the whole Hogs Night Out thing. I said screw that, I went out and signed Jack Kent Cooke’s to the check. Everybody knows that story.”

I didn't read anything there about making players leave the game on a stretcher. Relevance? Zero.

Intent. That's the whole issue.

How do you prove intent?

You push a player in the field ofplay out of bounds. He then hits a cameraman and hurts himself. The Defensive player had no intent of that happening but as a result the Offensive player has to sit out or leave the game. He gets teh "Bounty" Cash.

We did not injure jack squat after Farve and Warner. And only two hits were penalized as illegal or roughing.

Doesn't matter if the player INTENDED to injury anyone.

If its true that Vilma put $10K on a table before the '09 NFCC game and said Favre out of the game, then what do you call that?

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/bounty:

3.A reward for some specific act, especially one given by a government or authority

Vilma may also be another scapegoat.

God I hope there is no video of that, if it really happened.
