The situation in the Miami Dolphins locker room has been a hot debate with people usually falling on one of two sides. Some think that players are grown men, should deal with it, and that this is part of normal locker room hijinks. The other side think this is bullying, or hazing, and needs to be stopped.
Chicago Bears wide receiver, Brandon Marshall, used to play in Miami, thinks it’s time for people to start blowing whistles and talking, in a constructive manner.
“(What’s) going on in Miami goes on in every locker room,” Marshall said, via NFL.com. “But it’s time for us to start talking. Maybe have some group sessions where guys sit down and maybe talk about what’s going on off the field or what’s going on in the building and not mask everything. Because the (longer) it goes untreated, the worse it gets.”
Former Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush, who played with Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin last season, agrees.
“Obviously the situation that’s going on is unfortunate, and anytime a guy gets pushed to that level of not wanting to play football then something has to be done,” Bush said. “I think it’s something that we can all learn from.”
