The revelations were shocking to those outside the NFL: A team
paid bounties to knock opponents out of the game, including some of
its biggest stars.
For those who suit up, however, it sounds more like the
long-accepted cost of doing business in a brutal sport/
Atlanta Falcons star Roddy White calls it a "league thing"
that goes far beyond the New Orleans Saints.
Shawne Merriman of the Buffalo Bills wonders why all the fuss
now about bounties. And former All-Pro guard Alan Faneca says he's
not surprised at all that such a sordid system has come to light.
Retired quarterback Joe Theismann says bounties are a
long-accepted part of the game. In his day, it was actually
"flattering" to be the target.
