    League looking at whether Packers are violating bounty rules

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm

    LEAGUE LOOKING AT WHETHER PACKERS ARE VIOLATING BOUNTY RULES

    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tells us that the league is looking into the question of whether members of the Green Bay Packers have violated the league's rules against bounties.

    On Sunday, Bob Holtzmann of ESPN reported during Sunday NFL Countdown that a couple of Packers defensive backs had promised to pay each of the team's defensive linemen $500 if there were able to hold Vikings running back Adrian Peterson under 100 yards rushing in Week Ten.

    They succeeded.

    For Week Eleven, another $500 per lineman was promised if the Packers held the Panthers to under 60 yards rushing.

    They failed.

    We asked Aiello whether these extra payments counted against the salary cap, given that they were coming from teammates and not from the team.
    Aiello said that it's not a cap issue, but he explained that the league is looking at whether such promises are impermissible bounties.

    The classic bounty is an offer of money or other benefits in exchange for injuring a player. [size=13pt] But to the extent that limiting a player's production can be satisfied in part by, for example, tearing the player's LCL, it's probably not a good idea for incentives of this nature to be dangled in front of NFL players.[/size]

    Stay tuned.

    Re: League looking at whether Packers are violating bounty rules

    Interesting read my friend.
    Thanks.

    On a seperate note:.......


    What thread was it in that somebody was trying to convince me that PFT was the best site on the web.

    Nothing but credible reporting on stuff that coaches and players read or something like that.

    Brother, I guess he was on the mark there......... :
    (That was being sarcastic by the way)
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    They do post almost anything.
    But keep in mind that they post it in their "Rumor Mill" section - which means that they are rumors, not facts.
    Also, the source in this instance is NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, so it has some credibility.

    I don't refer to it as PFT, I refer to it as PFFFFT.

    Aren't they the same ones that also said, Chilly would be fired as early as last week?
