The fundamental difference is that we're in the habit of doing it. I agree with the "not true" part.
You'd be right about players coming regardless if every TD would agree to it at once, and we quit told turkey. Or if we used a time machine to go back and stop it at its inception.
I still don't see it as bribery, any more than an invitation to a kitchen poker game is bribery.
