STOP - who cares about bullies in Football.

This is not a school.   This is not the local playground.   This is not the office where accounting or other services are done.   This is not a fast food establishment, or grocery store or a retail outlet.   This is a football team, where gladiators and real men who play a game for purposes of establishing physical and strategic dominance work and play.  These are some of the toughest men in our country. 

Let this story die.   It is completely ridiculous to worry about pranksters and hazing of football players.   It IS football. 

Have you ever heard the trash talking of an athlete - if that nonsense happened in any other industry, it would be unacceptable - but this is professional sports - where only the elite athletes get the chance to show their wares.


NFLPA - go do something constructive like negotiate multifaceted heath plan for all retired players.  That is a better use of your resources and is more in line with your purpose.

Amen!

Martin should either suck it up or take his crybaby ass somewhere other than the NFL.

Gladiators, warriors, blah, blah, blah. Bullshit. This isn't ancient rome and these men are not freaking "gladiators". They are highly talented, physically gifted, professional athletes who play a silly game, because enough people pay to watch them play that they can get paid millions of dollars to do so.

Don't assign football any more importance than what it really has. It's a game, and if it ended tomorrow the world would barely notice. But the men who play are still human beings, and acting like they should be held to some arbitrary standard apart from every other human being is the essence of stupidity.

Martin was well within his rights to walk out if he felt the need, and if he *never* returns, then so be it. It's the rest of the team that has to pay the consequences for acting like juvenile assholes. Oh, and Dolphins fans, who, by the way, have suffered enough.

Probably these guys should be spending their free time trying to figure out how to block opposing defenders, not playing pranks on each other.

Why do you even follow football? You sound like a sissy girl wimp who wouldn't know how to suck it up and persevere through tough times - I sure hope you don't have kids or a wife when a national disaster happens - you don't sound like you would know what to do but cry, "why me?" I want my football players to play through broken noses. I want my football players to have their pinkies cut off and taped so they can get back into the game ala Ronnie Lott. I want my players to play hard all the way to the final whistle no matter what the score. If Martin is too sensitive to take the "NFL Culture," STFU, quit, and become a doctor as was his original second career plans.

Couldn't have said it better. The real men today are sadly being converted to sissy girls by Hollywood and the liberal media.

That's what the liberated women wanted and that's what they're getting unfortunately. Hate to see what this country looks like in another 20 years!
