Miami Dolphins Create Their Version of the ‘Soldier’s Creed’ to Combat Bullying (Tweet)

It’s been a tough year for the Miami Dolphins, who have seemed to be rotting from within as an organization, with blame spread from players to coaches to execs. With the situation so dire, it’s not so surprising that the ball club has taken prose from the U.S. Army to instill in the players and employees a sense of duty and respect to one another.

Whether or not this will actually serve to do anything other than placate the public is anyone’s guess, but it’s interesting whether it’s effective or not. I mean, I doubt this credo will do any more to prevent bullying than the Pledge of Allegiance does to prevent treason, but if it makes people feel better, there doesn’t seem to be much harm.

Soooooo, here is the Miami Dolphins new credo, which I think we can all presume was lifted from the Solder’s Creed, which is listed further below:

And here’s the military one:

I am an American Soldier
I am a Warrior and a member of a team
I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values
I will always place the mission first
I will never accept defeat
I will never quit
I will never leave a fallen comrade
I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills
I always maintain my arms, my equipment, and myself
I am an expert and I am a professional
I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy the enemies of the United States of America in close combat
I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life
I am an American Soldier
