In this week's episode it's pretty obvious that Leo is aware of what Bobby
is doing to his wife. 

There is a secret meeting in the woods with some pretty veiled threats by
Leo to "take care of it". He ends by suggesting that Bobby go "out for a
pass" while he waves a shotgun at him. When Bobby and his friend arrive back
at their car there is a miniature football on the hood.

So the sliced up football would seem to be a token of Leo's affection for
Bobby. I guess he's just waiting for Bobby to fork over the last $10,000
before killing him.
