Remembering Buddy and the Bounty Bowls. It is amazing how we hear the same rhetoric 23 years later.

Do kickers really count as NFL players?
Especially kickers in the late 80s?
Wife-slapping and drunk driving used to be mainstream punchlines, too.
It's all fun and games, until someone loses an eye.
This is exactly like last time....except that the league actually found evidence of wrongdoing this time.
I think that Golic was saying on Mike and Mike that there was no bounty in that game, and it was more like "hey, rookie, go take out that kicker."
I think that the salient point is that 23 years ago, nobody cared whether players were being incented to hurt each other; the concern was that teams were paying players under the table.
What's your problem?
The utilization of "incented" has a high degree of functionality, when actualized in a subjective framework.
It's a perfectly cromulent word.
The problem is that there's already a (sort-of) word for that- incentivised, which has a higher degree of functionality because "incent" doesn't mean anything.
I am incented that you would impugnify such a word.
I'm more opposed to douchetastic grammar corrections than I am to unnecessary but functional neologimacizing.
It's the viewership that has also changed. Bounties don't have a place in a game of skill. This isn't wrestling.
NFL is just going soft for the mainstream audience.
Too much money involved now, gotta protect their image.
