FC Marshall brought this on himself and thought he can push his weight around once he was top dog of the team when Cutler got his "wish" to be traded. Seems veterans like Stokely are having no problems with the coach and probably agrees with the suspension. Remember, Stokely is the one that had to stop FC BM from going "Look at me America" with his stupid Obama sign during the national televised game that would have got him fined and/or suspended.
I think a more-experienced HC could have and would have handled both the Cutler and Marshall situations better... with more finesse, diplomacy, and tact. Neither situation had to get this bad. IMHO. And that is on Cutler, Marshall and
