  1. Players Weigh in on Bullying as NFL Culture Goes Under Microscope

    Several players are defending Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito, whom the league suspended following allegations that he bullied teammate Jonathan Martin. New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle denounced bullying but said the massive Martin ”should be able to stand up for himself.” But a broader culture of bullying exists in the league, as evidenced by the video of the Giants Jason Pierre-Paul throwing teammate Prince Amukamara into a tub of freezing water. With Martin’s lawyer stating that the player endured not only hazing but a “malicious physical attack,” will the NFL be tough enough to tackle a broader culture of harassment among players?
