BASH FOR CASH

SAINTS PAY BONUS FOR A KNOCKOUT

Sean Peyton is in trouble.  It’s been revealed that the New Orleans Saints have been paying their players cash bonuses for injuring opposing team players.  Bonuses of $1,000 were paid for a cart-off and $1,500 for a knockout.  At one point during the 2009 playoffs their bonus pool reached $50,000.

Commissioner Roger Goodell fined Bill Belichick $ 500,000 for filming the competition.  I wonder what the fine will be for malicious injury to a player.
