Bullying in the NFL

After a long hiatus, I am back with a new video for you to enjoy about bullying in the NFL. Richie Incognito from the Miami Dolphins was recently in the news for bullying teammate Jonathan Martin to the point where Martin has left the team. The reports indicate that Incognito took hazing to another level by using threatening and racial slurs to Martin and being more of a bully. Incognito has been suspended indefinitely because of this and Bullying in the NFL has come to the forefront.

Hazing in a lockeroom is common among the NFL but what from what the reports say, Incognito was not hazing Martin, more-so he was abusing him. Martin, now in his second year in the NFL, is a Stanford grad and probably understands the difference between the two. He probably to the slander in his first year, but now in his second year he feels that is not right. The news came as a surprise that Martin left the team because of this, but Martin is the quiet guy who was not conformable in the situation he was end. Now Incognito has a long history of foul behavior, but surprisingly he was on the leadership committee of the team so that may have made things difficult for Martin as far as speaking out. However, Incognito’s intimidation is racial epitome was not tolerated by the NFL after later receiving messages that Incognito sent to Martin.

Here is a brief snippet of one of Incognito’s messages:

“Hey, wassup, you half n—– piece of s—. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. [I want to] s— in your f—ing mouth. [I’m going to] slap your f—ing mouth. [I’m going to] slap your real mother across the face [laughter]. F— you, you’re still a rookie. I’ll kill you.”

As you can see, this is just unacceptable. Bullying is becoming a big issue, not only with children in school, but amongst adults as well. Phirst Contention discussed this issue as it relates to sports..
