In Roger Goodalls world it goes like this..."Suspend him for a year because of player safety....how about that 18 game season." A joke.
This is what I was wondering about...
Honestly, I haven't paid much attention to this bounty gate stuff...
Were they paying players to actively seek to injure other players? Or were they paying for big hits that let to injuries? Or were they just paying for big hits in general?
