If we had an opportunity to sign OT Jonathan Martin cheap, should we do that?

    I will say this that I have been harassed in the work place and it sucks but it does toughen you up and I have learned how to deal with it much better in the future.

    No it's not JABF, news networkds, politicals might want you to think it is, but it's really not. The VAST majority of people in the workforce do not live like the PC world wants or expects the mto.

    Incognito might be, but the majority of NLF playrs on the dolphins are backing him. Much like how these same players are telling you that they'd rather take a shot to the head over a shot to the knee, which is completely bassackwards from the way the retired players are telling you they were purposefully decieved to their detriment(guarantee you they would be telling you the same things as the curret players are, they'd perfer shots to the head), the nfl is a different beast and very NOT PC.

    So... if players in whatever locker room bully Sam for being gay, you will be okay with it?

    Thats the point, people should not have to "deal with it" to begin with. Not everybody WANTS to be "toughened up," and behavior such as this is inexcusable. Even you admit that "it sucks." Very few people who have been harassed or bullied are actual thankful and appreciative for that experience, it does way more damage than good, and should not happen in the workplace (since it inevitably hurts productivity since victims become more concerned about getting harassed than doing their jobs).

    None of my friends ever told me they were gonna run train on my sister or any other female family member of mine. Incognito is a piece of crap and has been since college.

    So where do you draw the line at someone needing to be toughened up?

    The guy that isn't the macho man who think he should be?
    The kid who just lost a parent and is crying?
    The kid who is handicaped?
    The kid who is a homosexual?
    The short kid with glasses?

    Where do you draw the line?

    Sometimes, what you are seeing now are people who have been bullied simply getting a gun and killing people in retaliation for the bullying. It seems like you read about it every day now. Dead people in the workplace.

    The places we work can be challenging enough without having to put up with a bunch of crap from a half-wit idiot co-worker. And I shouldn't have to try and beat the crap out of a co-worker (or shoot him) because the guy is harassing me.

    Isn't it just better if people come to work and do their jobs - including NFL players? Just do your job and don't crap on your co-workers. If a guy can't get that through his neanderthal brain then get rid of him. Ultimately these half-wit people can cost your organization money and quality workers who just want to come to work and do their job.
