Re: League looking at whether Packers are violating bounty rules
Well looks like the Pack have got away with it then ..
[size=14pt]NFL will not punish Packers players for 'bounty rule' violation[/size]
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers players no longer can offer teammates financial incentives for their on-field performance, but the NFL will not punish them for violating the league's "bounty rule."
Now why aren't they being punished?
So right from the beginning they were in breach of league rules no question at all so there should be some form of punishment or fine. If players can be fined for waering a non-approved towel or cap then surely this warrants some form of rebuke as well.
League rules prohibit teams and players "from offering or accepting bonuses to a player for his or his team's performance against a particular team, a particular opposing player or players, or a particular group of an opposing team."
And Packer fans say they don't get special treatment - yeah right
Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
