Culture of Bullying Revisited

Some time ago, a story broke about Jonathan Martin’s abrupt departure from the Miami Dolphins — reportedly over being relentlessly bullied by his teammates.

The original story carried remarks from FoxSports.com that had reported Martin was subjected to “excessive, over-the-top bullying”.

His teammates denied that characterization of the activities, with offensive guard Nate Garner calling the situation with Martin “normal stuff”, and other players saying “it wasn’t anything that doesn’t go on in any locker room, but that Martin snapped”.
