NFL leaders must take lead to end bullying


The Dolphins initially dismissed allegations that Incognito had gone way over the line in his alleged nonstop harassment of Martin. But the case got the public’s attention.

A ROOKIE PLAYER’S introduction to the NFL has gone from harmless teasing, like having to stand on a chair and sing his school’s fight song, to something approaching extortion, like sticking rookies with intentionally outrageous bills for costly dinners.

There is a way to stop this outrageous harassment. The NFL has a commissioner, each team has a head coach and platoons of assistant coaches and presumably a cadre of older, more experienced team leaders.

It is time for adult supervision in the locker room.
