    Bounty For Turnovers?

    Would a bounty for Turnovers be legal?

    If you fumble, you put $20k in the pot. If you recover a fumble, get an INT, force a fumble, etc, you get a share of the weekly pot.

    If this won't work, how bout we put incentives in contracts to get turnovers and hold on to the ball?

    There has to be a way to incentivize the outcome we want.

    That's good too. Maybe the D players that get the turnovers get to pick the charities. Then there's no bounty and it's completely legal.

    Any money that would go to a player would be a circumvention of the salary cap. Illegal, but not on the same level as the player safety issue that the most recent bounty scandal was. As a matter of fact, the cap circumvention of the Saints situation was pretty much swept under the rug.

    There would have been an $80,000 game in total; some charity in Pittsburgh would have been very happy that weekend!

    I wasn't sure about that, but suspected that might be the case. So let the money go to the charity of the D player's choosing and problem solved.

    Too make it more fun and fair to the O, you could fine a D player that gives up a TD and have that money go into a pot for O players that score TDs.

    Coaches or front office paying players for such things, yeah, that wouldn't be kosher. But if you think about it, players paying other players shouldn't circumvent the salary cap in theory (what goes out of one player's pocket goes into another player's pocket...the team still pays out the same in player salaries either way).


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    I like the idea.


    I'd also like to see coaches fined for certain bone-headed decisions they make...it could go to a charity, too...
