Durbin Urges Congressional Intervention in NFL


U-S Senator Dick Durbin thinks Congress may need to intervene in the controversy over “bounty systems” in which professional football players received bonuses for intentionally injuring opponents.

 

Such a system resulted in suspensions for top officials with the New Orleans Saints this week, but Durbin wants hearings into whether such actions should be a federal crime.

 

Durbin says in any other setting, paying someone to deliberately injure someone else would result in prosecution, and wonders why the sporting arena should be any different.
