Stink: Dolphins should have known there’s a line not to be crossed

Don't lose crucial parts of 'the code'

Many have said Martin has broken “the code” and will never be welcomed back in the locker room. What about “the code” that says we love one another? We play hard for one another? We set aside our differences and bond together as one?

What about that fraternity, that code?

It says a lot that Mark Schlereth - at the time, a journeyman scrap-heap signee, and self-proclaimed least confrontational person you'll ever meet - was able to stand up for a young Broncos teammate in 1995. And it says very little for the 2013 Dolphins and their apparent leadership vacuum.
