BULLYING IN THE NFL.

Posted November 05, 2013

BULLYING.

I have no idea how that could be a thing among football players. I know that I'm going to be vilified for not siding with the bullied player on this one, but the fact is if you are an Offensive Linemen in the NFL, NOBODY short of God Almighty himself, should be able to bully you. 

An NFL Offensive Linemen is a man who is paid to push other grown men around. Large grown men. Grown men who bench 300 and up. Your job is to take a large powerful man whose job is to throw around other men, and push him around instead. If you can be bullied, I don't want you protecting me. 

FULL DISCLOSURE: I was a bullied kid until I was in 5th grade. By the end of the year I was hunting bullies. So I can relate from either side of this issue.

Today there isn't a man on Earth who could bully me. I'm not saying I'm unbeatable, I'm saying if you pick a fight with me you would actually have to beat me, because I won't let you just walk away from what you started. You asked for it, you got it. That temperament helped make me a damned good O-lineman. So that said, I don't get this thing in Miami.

If the one guy thought he was being mistreated and he felt he couldn't go to the staff, I don't get why he didn't just "handle it himself". When was the last time you heard of an NFL player being arrested over a fight with a teammate? During a practice, former EAGLE/RAIDER Bill Romanowski once ripped off a teammates helmet, punched him in the eye and broke his orbital bone (it was how I learned what an orbital bone was). It forced the guy to retire. He sued Romo and won (I believe), but Romo spent no time in cell over that, despite dozens of witnesses to the event.

Remember the resulting arrest from the T.O./Hugh Douglas fight? Me neither! So I don't get how anybody gets bullied in the NFL.
