Re: League looking at whether Packers are violating bounty rulesWoodson added that no one should link the knee injury Peterson suffered against the Packers in the Nov. 11 game with any incentives the players might have been offered.
Truth of the matter is that the Packers made these "bounties" against our star and he ended up being injured.
Doesn't matter if it was directly because of it or not, it happened.
The Packers are just trying to save their rears now the cat is out of the bag.
It's poor sportmanship and they should be punished to some extent to keep this from happening again in the future for other teams.Skol!

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?
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...
