    Re: League looking at whether Packers are violating bounty rules

    Woodson 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.
    BS!
    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!
    Go Vikings!

    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]

    Associated Press

    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."

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=090...o&confirm=true

    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."
    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.

    And Packer fans say they don't get special treatment - yeah right
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
