Ex-Bear Robinson: Bounties Are Part Of The Game

(WSCR) As several former NFL players have said, bounty systems are just a part of the game.

Former Bears wide receiver Marcus Robinson joined The Mully and Hanley Show to discuss the system.

“All those great defenses, you think they didn’t have incentives in the game to separate guys from the ball and knock them out? I’m sure they did,” Robinson said. “If you got Brett Favre, they’re going to say, we need to keep hitting this guy. This guy is older and we need to keep hitting him. If you got a late penalty, so what? They’re trying to win games.

“Anytime you have a great defense that wants to instill fear in people, I’m sure they had some type of incentives. I remember in special teams meetings, for young guys, especially, the first guy to get a tackle inside the 20-yard line, they’ll give him a certain amount of money.”

    the great american sport – headhunting for cash and prizes – wow – hey parents – something else to worry about – this will be put in place in pee-wee league this coming summer season…

    You can teach “tackling, or stripping the football” without headhunting. Teaching good tackling without causing injury can also be taught at any level.

    The more a player in ANY sport tries to injure another player, the more likely that player will ultimately injure himself.

    The whole issue should be about stupid coaching!
