    Those are very low standards that you have set for men.
    Oh good grief. If you want to play by PC HR rules, stay the hell out of football. And anyone who thinks that there's a racism problem on the Miami Dolphins is just too delicate to even watch the sport.

Maybe he will be immediately hired by another team. But would you hire him?
    Yeah, he's had problems. When he was the Rams he was a pretty good tackle, but he gave back almost 600 yards in penalties over less than four years. He was constantly fined and got into huge arguments with the coaching staff multiple times bringing some bad media attention to the Rams. My dad and I physically cheered when we found out the Rams waived him in 2009. If my team hired him I'd be disappointed.

    I don't really have enough information to make an informed opinion about what should be done here, but my memories of Incognito leave me seriously unsympathetic towards him.

    Martin should be tougher. But he's not- so what? He shouldn't have to put up with that ****, either. It's a ****ing sports team, it's not a platoon.

    Sorry - you misunderstand - I have no standards for men whose profession is playing a game or whose lives revolve around violent entertainment. They're not my role models in life and I could care less what the dynamics are in a professional sports lockerroom or on the playing field. I don't have a problem with them, but you seem to.

    You would never know it was happening.

    It's not though, so that really doesn't matter.

    Sorry, but it's ludicrous to compare a Fortune 500 company with a football team - but let's use your analogy - I'd say you'd be right if this player was threatening and harassing the water boy or an usher or some other "employee" of the team - he wasn't - he was threatening and harassing his peer on the team - a player, just like him, on the same level and paid to do the same job - it would be the equivalent of two VPs in a corporation having at it in the board room or in the office - if you don't think that kind of thing goes on all over the business world, you're not paying attention.

Many, many sports offer the prospect of such injuries, and more.
    What other sport offers the possibility of such severe brain trauma that you wind up killing yourself? Or turning into some violent person that his own family is afraid of? And actually, the long term effect of head injuries isn't such a recent discovery. What's recent is the NFL finally accepting the scientific proof after denying it for 15 years.
