A long time ago, before the time of the Internet, a Queen-obsessed friend of mine told me that they had a b-side parody version of that song where they stopped it, waited a second, and Freddie just says "Fried chicken." To this day I've never found it, but I'd love to one day get it.

Many, many, many defensive contracts have escalator clauses based on sacks, tackles, forced fumbles, etc. This is no different. As stated by everyone involved, the "bounties" were only for legal hits.

If someone gets 10K for a sack in a game. How much do you think that's worth in his actual contract (or future contracts)? Most likely a helluva lot more than 10k

Whoops. Stupid mouse. Was going to add that I felt that those were impersonal performance bonuses, not targeted on a specific player. Obviously a sack is only on a QB, but it doesn't mean you get more for sacking a division QB. But given that, I wouldn't really argue against performance bonuses.

From Wiki:

"Bounty scandal

Main article: New Orleans Saints bounty scandal

On March 2, 2012, the NFL alleged that from 2009 to 2011, the Saints implemented a bounty program which rewarded players for deliberately attempting to knock opposing players out of games. The slush fund was reportedly administered by defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who joined the team in 2009. An extensive league investigation, the proof of which has never been made public, found that Payton was complicit in the scheme. Payton reportedly even went as far as to orchestrate a cover-up when the league first investigated it in the 2009-10 offseason. Other indications were that since the NFL hierarchy believed that this Bounty program existed that any comments to the contrary were considered to be a "cover-up". When informed that the league was investigating reports of a bounty program, Payton met with Williams and assistant head coach Joe Vitt and told them, "Let's make sure our ducks are in a row."[21] "To get one's ducks in a row essentially means to ensure all of the small details or elements are accounted for and in their proper positions." [22]

According to a league memo, the NFL reopened its investigation late in the 2011 season. Just before the Saints' playoff game against the Detroit Lions, league officials alerted Saints owner Tom Benson that they had found irrefutable evidence of the Saints' bounty program.[23][24] When general manager Mickey Loomis informed Payton that the league had reopened its investigation, Payton failed to shut the alleged program down.[21]

On March 22, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Payton for the entire 2012 season, effective April 1, 2012. Payton is the first head coach in modern NFL history to be suspended for any reason. Goodell was particularly angered that Payton and other Saints officials had lied to him about the scheme. For instance, during its 2012 investigation, the league uncovered an email that Michael Ornstein, the agent for former Saints running back Reggie Bush, had sent to Payton. In reality, the Ornstein email wasn't directly sent to Payton, instead it came to team spokesman Greg Bensel, who then forwarded it to the coaching staff with this message: "email from Orny (he asked that I send it) the dude is in prison so I told him I would." [25] The email stated "put me down for $5000 on "Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers".[24] "It's a running joke going for three years," Ornstein said. "Ornstein's email is just another example of the speciousness of the quote-unquote evidence that Commissioner (Roger) Goodell claims to have to support his erroneous accusations against Jonathan and the other players," lawyer Peter Ginsberg said. "As more of the evidence is revealed in the media, it is becoming more and more apparent how irresponsible the NFL's actions have been." [26] When confronted with the email, Payton initially claimed he never read it, but subsequently admitted that he had.[23][27] In an interview with ESPN's Adam Schefter, Goodell implied that Payton would have faced significant punishment even if he'd been more forthcoming. In Goodell's view, Payton's contractual obligation to supervise his assistants meant that, at the very least, he should have known about the scheme and shut it down immediately.[28] In the league's announcement of sanctions against the Saints, Payton was faulted for violating a provision of the league constitution that requires coaches to inform their owners about team operations, as well as to "avoid actions that undermine or damage the club's reputation or operating success."[21]

On March 30, Payton lodged a formal appeal of his suspension. Goodell held an expedited hearing on the matter and was expected to render a decision in "days, not weeks," according to ESPN's Schefter. Payton will also use the hearing as a chance to get clarification on the terms of his ban.[29] Goodell turned the appeal down on April 9, meaning that Payton's suspension is set to begin on April 16.[30] He will remain suspended until the end of Super Bowl XLVII, which will be held in New Orleans. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Payton will forfeit $5.8 million of his $7.1 million salary.[31] He will be barred from even casual contact with anyone in the NFL; such contact must be reported to NFL executive Ray Anderson.[32]

Soon after the suspension was announced, Payton began discussions with his mentor, Parcells, about serving as interim coach for the 2012 season.[33]"

If you don't want your team suspended then perhaps you shouldn't have put bounties on players. Why do I feel like the only person who doesn't understand why saints fans are so upset. I get that your coach is suspended and so are some players. I wouldn't be happy either, but this is not the greatest injustice to ever occur. This is the fault of the players and coaches who participated in paying rewards to players who targeted other players for injuries. There is no way the NFL could look good if it didn't bring the hammer down on this issue. The NFL did the right thing by taking a hardline approach to this. This type of stuff is inexcusable and cannot be tolerated.

Because there's actually no evidence of a bounty system, only a pay-for-performance system that gave out small token payments for legal hits? Farking idiot.

Or its because they don't realize even those payments are illegal under the CBA they were under? Its called circumventing the salary cap and teams will scream about it since they were paid money not reported or counted against that teams cap. It will give that team an unfair advantage in keeping certain personnel who may make the league minimum or little bit more but could make half their salary or more for incentive hits on players.

Performance based payments are not even the same thing since you get paid usually for leading the league in a stat or for meeting a number coming off an injury.

I think the state of the saints defense this year pretty much proves they had an unfair advantage the previous years.

Because in a league of "dotting," "hot sauce," and myriad players attesting to the commonality of P4P systems, players factor such things into their career decisions when sitting down with the wife. And the figure of "half their salary" isn't at all pulled directly from your rectal cavity.

Or they're learning a new system and don't have the same personnel anymore.

As always, thanks for the dispatch from moron island.

You don't know anything about the ineptitude of the Saints' defense over the years.

Also, what unfair advantage? Were they getting the best D free agents? Or is it the motivation of an off the books bonus that's way below the penalty they'd get for being caught? Are these bonuses now magic PEDs?

Players TOTALLY consider "P4P system vs. no P4P system" when signing with a team. Just trust him, he's played in like five semipro leagues. And don't listen to the players who say they're everywhere, they're all stupid.

This is certainly a valid point, but you do realize that this includes ALL things of this nature, like Eli Manning buying watches for his offensive line?

Unless you're think Saints' ownership paid out the performance "bonuses"?

The things that bugs me about the whole bounty affair is, if you need extra incentive to want to hit Brett Favre, then you don't deserve to wear an NFL uniform.

Was there anyone who followed the NFL (except perhaps Packers fans and a few fans of whatever his current team was) who didn't want to see him carted off the field?

Not that I'd wish injury on anyone (normally) but it seemed like the only way to get him to go away.
