Back in the day, we called this the "make-a-wish" play.
But we didn't need a "bounty"...

I don't really follow football, but Logan makes a great point: is the problem "big hits" themselves (knockouts or cart-offs) or is the problem being paid a bonus for them when your base salary should already cover it?
It seems to me that if the NFL wanted to discourage "big hits" they would universally fine players for it and otherwise penalize their occurrence to the point where "big hits" are not financially beneficial for anyone.

If they standardize rules & uniformly enforce them, they no longer have the "drama" to stoke fan mania. No "controversies" for wannabee analysts to fret & fight over every minute they're not glued to the TV. The low "theater" aspect of "pro" wrestling has reached into every sport, & they have no interest in eliminating it--just managing it.

So how much did Goodell get as a bounty for sacking the coach?
