Dolphins case is a chance to change NFL culture
November 8 , 2013
The recent case of a Miami Dolphins player accused of bullying another player could be a chance to change the NFL culture.
Emily Bazelon and Josh Levin wrote at Slate that it sounds weird to know that a bulky lineman like Jonathan Martin could be bullied but Richie Incognito "has spent his life training for the role of locker-room villain."
The problem arises when the league doesn't pay attention to such issues and teams usually forgive as long as players perform well.
"If the NFL can switch from enabling its Incognitos to helping its Martins, the latter player could become a modern-day Rosey Grier," Bazelon and Levin wrote.
