We were not the first team with bounty issues.
Bounty Bowl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

On November 23, 1989, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Buddy Ryan found himself at the center of yet another controversy. The Eagles defeated Dallas by a score of 27-0, Dallas' only Thanksgiving game shutout. During the lopsided game, vitriol came to the surface on the field as the rivals got into several skirmishes, most notably when Dallas placekicker Luis Zendajas left the game with a concussion following a hard tackle by linebacker Jessie Small after a kickoff.

Following the game, broadcast on CBS with Pat Summerall and John Madden calling the game, Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson alleged that Ryan had taken out a bounty on two of his players, Dallas (and former Philadelphia) kicker Luis Zendejas and quarterback Troy Aikman. Johnson said:[citation needed]
“ I have absolutely no respect for the way they played the game, I would have said something to Buddy, but he wouldn't stand on the field long enough. He put his big, fat rear end into the dressing room. ”

Zendejas claimed that when he was with the Eagles, a player had once received $200 – $100 each for hits on a punter and kicker. This is what led his coach Jimmy Johnson to make the accusation that a bounty had existed in this game as well.[citation needed]

Buddy Ryan responded to Johnson's accusations:[citation needed]
“ I resent that. I've been on a diet, lost a couple of pounds. I thought I was looking good. ”

Oh no. We weren't the first by a long shot. Everybody who knows anything about the NFL knows this stuff has been going on since before the Merger even. The difference is the NFL wasn't caught red-faced lying to Congressional Committees about head trauma back then. Since Roger took over the NFL has been caught lying to Congressional Committees twice...well, the second time in 2009 the NFL's doctor conveniently failed to show up.
