Continuity mistake: When Marley is walking to meet Rourke at the cafe, look behind her as she turns the corner and comes to a stop. You will see a woman inside the cafe behind her take a sip from her coffee. The scene then cuts to a close-up of Marley and we see the woman inside the cafe take that same sip of coffee again. There was not enough time for her to drop her hand and bring it back up again to take another sip.

Continuity mistake: Gene Hackman meets the head of the gun company where the head guy has his shooting range. After they are done talking, Hackman walks away and the head is in the process of taking out his protective glasses, the shot changes and the head has already fired his weapon and hit his target, while Hackman is the same distance away.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene, Marlee and Nick are seen together looking at a school yard of children playing while holding each other. Notice Marlee's hair is dark red, then there's a shot to Mr. Rourke and back to Nick and Marlee. Her hair is now black, and then another shot back to Mr. Rourke, and back to Nick and Marlee. Now her hair is dark red again.

The camera pans around the room as the others raise and hold their hands in the air, including Miss Hullic, who is sitting behind Frank Herrara.

Chosen answer: Hackman's team was closely monitoring what Hoffman was doing in regards to the tampering, as evidenced by their taping of his conversation with Weiss when he decides not to pay. Cusack and Weiss probably anticipated this so were forced to offer the deal to Hoffman to keep up the illusion.

Answer: The short answer is because the viewers did not yet know their intentions so, from the viewers point of view, they should be asking both sides for money. Also, even though it was revealed much later they were on the side of the planting, it doesn't mean they were not greedy, and they would have taken money from either side or both sides.
