Brandon Marshall gave the totally perfect take on the sad situation happening down in Miami where Jonathan Martin quit the team after Richie Incognito allegedly verbally harassed him one time too many.
heres an excerpt from the video above
“Look at it from this standpoint,” Marshall, who in 2011 was treated for borderline personality disorder treatment, said. “You take a little boy and a little girl. A little boy falls down; the first thing we say as parents is, ‘Get up. Shake it off. You’ll be OK. Don’t cry.’ When the little girl falls down, what do we say? ‘It’s going to be OK.’ We validate their feelings.
“So right there from that moment, we’re teaching our men to mask their feelings, don’t show their emotions. And it’s that times 100 with football players. Can’t show that you’re hurt. Can’t show any pain.
“So for a guy that comes in a locker room and shows a little vulnerability, that’s a problem. That’s what I mean by the culture of the NFL. And that’s what we have to change.”
Very proud to be a lifelong Bears fan after hearing him say that
