And let's not forget that this isn't Jonathan Vilma's first go-round with bounties. remember the name Nevin Shapiro?
$2,250 in bounties. Shapiro said the bounties were: $1,000 for a hit and personal foul penalty by Vilma on Florida State quarterback Chris Rix during Miami’s 28-27 win on Oct. 12, 2002; $250 for a sack in a 38-33 win over Florida on Sept. 6, 2003; and $1,000 for a hit on Rix in a 16-14 win over Florida State on Jan. 1, 2004.
Just makes the "innocent" act all that much more contrived (as if it wasn't already).
