This isn't far off from What Brett Favre said when he was asked about bounties on him during the NFC Championship game with the New Orleans Saints. And this concept generated a lot of debate on my show; what's the difference between a player trying to take out another player for competitive advantage vs. being offered a reward to do it?
And other NFL players pointed out that "trying to take out" players is something that has existed for years. This season proves just how much a game of attrition pro football really is. It's not hard to believe some players make it that way on purpose.
