Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin leaves team after bullying by teammates - NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN

I, as someone who was terrorized by bullies, am absolutely disgusted by this story. It is absolutely unbelievable a bunch of grown men are acting like kids on a playground. I think there needs to be some discipline handed down to the Dolphins. If Goodell is so hard up on protecting players, he needs to think about their mental health as well.

Goodhell doesn't give a &^*# about the players.

They shouldn't have messed with a big man and his food.

This obviously got a bunch of attention the last couple days from what I've read online. I missed a good portion of last nights Bengal/Dolphin game, was out on the interstate helping my neighbor with his car. Dissenter, was this brought up on the NFL Channels broadcast of the game?

I didn't watch the game due to being out in DC. Regardless this type of thing has no place among grown men.

I guess the generation of PC indoctrinated football players are entering the NFL now and can't handle a little ribbing. Fish should just cut him he can't block worth doodly anyway.
I think a hell of a lot more than a little ribbing went on here. A little ribbing is training camp being thrown into ice water. Continually seeking out one player to play pranks on and exclude on purpose is nothing more than absolutely cruel, purposeful acts of malice and a textbook definition of bullying.

People are killing themselves and sometimes other people over bullying. It has ZERO place in the NFL.

IF I was making a million dollars a year to play a sport, and a bunch of teammates got up and walked away when I sat down to eat...I would smile and be thankful that I was getting paid a million dollars a year to play a game. First world problems!

He is a pusillanimous man of little character and doesn't deserve to be in the NFL. Maybe he should become a Ballerina or something.

What the hell have we allowed ourselves to become?
