My opinion I remeber playing Football in High school and we had older players kinda pick on younger players but no one really said anything cause thats just what it was your a tough male football player suck it up We have Grown men picking on rookie players in the NFL.Theres been a stimga about sports and hazing which really didnt happen when I played.But its the dark true it does happen.But now days bullying, hazing all of that is not tolerated but only if it is (shown)with social media etc.I dont condone bullying, hazing of any kind.But I also think that as a team you want to push each other to get better theres friendly competion, talking smack, get pumped up get angry motivated and then there is certain things like death threats, physical harm etc that is crossing the line. Plenty of coaches get in trouble for cussing, being too hard on players, harsh punishments, favoritisum etc. I think with the whole NFL investigation of the Miami Dolphins Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito that will bring to light alot of things that people dont want to hear about cause its breaking the bro code. Its also bringing out the secret world of the locker room I think were in this day and age that we just accept all of that as part of the game. I appalled Jonathan Martin for speaking out but unfornatly I believe it will hurt his NFL career.Do we need to change The NFL and sports in general or do we accept this is a isolated event and move on.
