Bullying in the NFL

 Imagine if you received threatening text messages from a colleague at work, hurling vile racial epithets at you along with a promise to “kill you.” What would you do? First, you would call company security, and then you might call the cops. But because this was the NFL, second-year player Martin thought he had to take it, otherwise he would be called soft. Finally, Martin simply walked away from the Dolphins — an act that is looking more manly and dignified by the second.

Apt commentary from Sally Jenkins.
