While the nature of the game dictates that injuries will always happen, it is clearly out of bounds to deliberately do harm to another player with a so-called bounty payment as incentive.

That said bounties have a long, if undocumented, history in the NFL. But bounties have been implicitly tolerated for years because no one talked publicly about them. Bounties were always whispered, and speculated about, which meant the league and the commissioner never had to take action. In other words – boys have at it, but please don’t embarrass the game.
