falcon057 Posted March 4, 2012 Share Posted March 4, 2012 New Orleans case puts scrutiny on NFL bounty payBy PAUL NEWBERRY-Associated PressSaturday, March 3, 2012The revelations were shocking to those outside the NFL: A team paid bounties to knock opponents out of the game, including some of its biggest stars.For those who suit up, however, it sounds more like the long-accepted cost of doing business in a brutal sport/Atlanta Falcons star Roddy White calls it a “league thing” that goes far beyond the New Orleans Saints.Shawne Merriman of the Buffalo Bills wonders why all the fuss now about bounties. And former All-Pro guard Alan Faneca says he’s not surprised at all that such a sordid system has come to light.Retired quarterback Joe Theismann says bounties are a long-accepted part of the game. In his day, it was actually “flattering” to be the target.Is there more teams doing this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
