Re the Feb. 26 story Miami Dolphins help introduce anti-bullying bill in state Legislature: Unfortunately, the proposal is primarily restricted to the incivility of individuals involved in athletics.
Bullying is not confined to sports or young people, and while it’s commendable that the Dolphins are trying to rectify the situation, it also appears that the organization wants to neutralize the bad publicity it’s had.
Furthermore, the attempt to legislate morality through the Safe Athletics Education and Training Act is an exercise in futility. The better — and more difficult — thing would be to attempt a change in the moral fiber of our nation’s parents, educators and others.
If your school’s all-state quarterback refuses to sign an anti-bullying pledge, do you think the coach will not let him play in the state final? You know the answer.
