We need to ask ourselves why the cries of Jonathon Martin took so long to hear. Where were his teammates, coaches, and the rest of people in the Dolphins organization?
The Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin incident -- both on and off the field -- reveals a culture where the "rules of the game" at best tolerated and at worst endorsed a "Wild West" culture of meanness, hazing, bullying and anything-goes.
The debate swirling around Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito has gone well beyond the sports pages and involves far more than the "code" of the NFL locker room.
Taylor Swift has the power to influence kids on an emotional level that can rival any popular celebrity today. Her endorsement of Diet Coke jeopardizes kids' ability to make healthy decisions and could lead to a doorway introducing our kids to the consumption of diet sodas and a relationship with the Coca-Cola brand.
A tipping point begins to protrude from the oceanic depths of this men's only club -- even if ratings are up -- this league is not bulletproof, nor is it made of Teflon; on the contrary, the NFL is dysfunctional, archaic and borderline inhumane.
In a statement released today, the National Football League has expressed its utter bewilderment and confusion over the fact that some of its players act like complete assholes.
Where are the real tough guys in football? I want to see the "real men" who have heart and courage. I am not talking about heroics on the field. I am talking about the guys willing to stand up and say bullying should not be tolerated anywhere in football.
What's next isn't always what's best and while the past may seem like a simpler time with nonreplicable stars and feats, don't ignore what may happen 100 times this NBA season. LeBron.
Some have asked how it is possible for a 300-pound pro football player to be a victim of bullying. It's easy to see if you break down the power dynamics.
No quiero desmentir todo lo que digan los Marlins, cuando hablan de contrataciones gastar dinero o mejorar el equipo trayendo a Miami a jugadores que estén en la parte más alta de su crecimiento y en plenitud de condiciones, pero la historia no me permite creer en los cantos de sirena que llegan desde las peceras de la Pequeña Habana.
What stood out was the new energy in the Barclays Center this year. A tenaciousness that was missing last year. When this Nets team is focused like they were Friday, every night will be a street fight.
Last week's Halloween, the last day in the month of October also happens to be the last day of National Bullying Prevention Month. Coincidentally, last week's nationally-televised NFL game between the Miami Dolphins and the Cincinnati Bengals served as a fitting stage for this issue which is gaining heightened awareness.
You briefly think about Jarrin Randall and Ben Coupet Jr., as you stand in the aisle and look down at the vibrating sea of red.
A few other fantasy tips: Stay away from running backs Trent Richardson and Chris Johnson, and definitely stay away from Kansas City wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. Start wide receivers Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey, Bengals running back Giovani Bernard and quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
