More Support for the Saints

While Jonathan Vilma’s immediate future is being dealt with in the courtroom, a former New Orleans Saints secondary coach says there was no “bounty” system with the team.
Dennis Allen is now the Raiders’ head coach, and he said on Jim Rome’s show, “We obviously had an incentive program. It’s unfortunate the things that have gone down there. I’ve got a lot of great friends there. I really respect those players, those coaches, and that’s some of the best memories I’ve got in the National Football League.”

I'm still surprised that the opposition hasn't raided all of our coaches.

So am I, but glad they haven't. Although I sure was sad to see our receivers coach go to Tulane, but I knew a couple years ago he was in line for bigger and better things.

Of course there wasn't a bounty program. Incentive? Yes! Obviously this was not investigated objectively. The Saints will win this battle with Goodell.

Why do you need incentive when you get paid MILLIONS !

You only leave a place when it's to your benefit or when you're asked to. Keep'em happy Benson!

Re: More Support for the Saints

Not one player or coach who was with the team for any season from 06 on has said that there was a bounty system. Even though the NFL claims that there have been confessions not one person has publicly stated that there was any such program.

I think most people misunderstand this part.
Why when I worked for a former employer, did I participate in incentive plans year round?

Because although the job was sweet, although the pay was great, it was a JOB and incentives lifted quota's company wide. Those who did NOT participate were always slightly behind.

It was like a game within a game. The prizes? Trips, flights, PC's, paid days off.
During Christmas, if you won the quota contest in your district, the prizes were substantial, as in a check for $3,000.

People would move fast, competition was tight but friendly among employees.

You still don't get it.

The pool wasn't about giving players incentive to make plays. I guarantee you no player went into the game thing he could make an extra grand if he hurt someone, or got a sack. The whole thing was more about bragging rights than anything else.
