Obviously I don't know you and mean no disrespect.This guy was a ProFootball Lineman. This is no a job for pansies. I would think he had to be tough to get there.

tough is one-thing, being a meat-head like Incognito shouldn't be a prerequisite however

I don't think it loss on nayone that looking at history of NFL players a lot have behavior problems and like others this is a age its had to hide from the public.Bascially with players representing NFL in personal appearances the NFL needs to take harsh steps to stop what has always been true but hidden. The Thugs could end players and now they are viewed and damage the NFL and earnings potential of other players.We have already seen what colleges are doing to stop the damage and what it does to a team.

Tough does not cover being called a n*#@er (sorry that word is evil and is an insult to previous generations of blacks who fought everyday to get ANY respect in this country), tough does not cover being targeted and harassed endlessly by your fellow O-lineman and having no one on the team take up for you.

I think what Jonathan Martin did was tough. He went and got help and removed himself from a toxic situation before this story turned into Columbine or Aurora, the NFL version. In my view, it takes one hell of a man to admit he needs help and gets it knowing he will be seen as soft for not putting with the BS anymore.
