    Uhhhh Ohhhhhh, this is going to pop a lot of Vikings fans bubbles (on the facebook site) that told me it wasn't something that was prevalent around the league but only really a Aint's thing.

    You know what else hasn't gotten much play? That we were caught CHEATING in an effort to get UDFA's in before other teams.

    LOL, were is the crowd calling for us to give up draft picks over that next year?

    I guess we have a bit of a duality issue around these here parts when it comes to teams doing things that break the rules ehhhhhh.

    You're first noticing double-standards now?

    Only the difference between Carter's 'bounties' and Vilma's was like night and day.

    Carters=protect my ass
    Vilmas=break his ankle

    Hmmmm..

    After reading Carters comments I think he may have taken a couple more big hits to the head than he is admitting to. He seems to be confusing the term reward with the term bounty. Rewarding your team mates for protecting you is different that paying your team mates to injure someone.

    I look at this as a sad attempt by Carter to get his name in the headlines again. The guy yearns for the spotlight.

    Yeah, this reeks of attention whoring.

    Agreed. Don't think he said anything significant, just trying to get people to mention him.

    Damn! If only Vilma had said he would "reward" a player with $10,000 for taking a player out, he wouldn't be suspended.

    sarcasm off
