I'd be willing to bet at an aggregate level, the locker rooms of all these professional sports are very similar. I'm pretty sure singling out football and basketball for homophobia is a mistake, maybe they're just more outspoken?

Not to take a shot at PSU on this, but I was listening to david todd and he had tom bradley on to talk about what goes on in the locker room. lol.

this gentleman is too lazy to look into it, but it would be interesting to re-read some comments from some of todd bertuzzi's teammates following the steve moore incident. it wouldnt be a surprise if most of bertuzzi's teammates stuck up for him by saying things like "hes a good guy, its just unforunate" and stuff like that.

its natural for a group to rally around a guy who was in the wrong and defend him regardless of how he behaved.

At this point he should just go and get plastic surgery, create a new name (and all the other stuff involved with that), enter college, get redrafted as a rookie and get back into the NFL. They can make a movie about it and just call it "Incognito".

The big difference there is I don't recall too many players blaming Steve Moore.

I mean, there were people saying Moore should've answered the bell against Bertuzzi - despite having fought (Matt Cooke) earlier in the game - and whatnot. But Dolphins players and some others around the league sound almost as if they think Jonathan Martin is the bad guy.

Won't disagree with that. But there were situations in hockey were dirty plays have lead to guys getting hurt, and a lot of people placed the blame on the injured player. The first one that comes to mind is the gonchar/ovie knee on knee hit.

Said sport does not allow such a thing. Punishable with minor, major and misconduct penalties. Game ejection. Very much illegal.

Difference is, those are people on different teams. Of course they're gonna have their teammates back. This case though, it's intra team, and very interesting how they seem to have incognitos back

Savard and booth hits jump out at me as far as victims getting blamed. Pens fans were all over Savard for admiring his pass.

That's more or less what I meant with "lack of mental development". They sort of stop mental development at around the age of 18, I guess i'd equate it to this. Consider how you acted between the ages of 18 - 21, think about stuck in that mental standpoint until your 30+.
