As is everything in the case, that is disputable to what extent it was brought up. Triplett said yesterday on Sirius NFL radio that things really did not heat up until right before the Lions playoff game.
I also think it makes Goodell look bad for not addressing it when he first confirmed it, if it was years ago. He sat on it, and it makes his new tough posturing on it look ridiculous.
And, I'm not buying "bounties." I'll buy motivational techniques used commonly in the league.
