I like Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall.


He's always been straight-up with me and given me the time that I've needed.

But I have to ask this question: Why does trouble seem to follow him around?

Does he put himself in bad situations? Is he involved with the wrong women? Is it him?

Whatever the case, Marshall needs to avoid it. The latest news that he was stabbed int he stomach Friday in what is being reported as a domestic dispute -- it might be his wife who did the stabbing -- is downright scary. It looks like he will be OK. This time.

What about the next time? What if the vital organs aren't missed, which is being reported here to be the case? Marshall was with Darrent Williams the night he was shot in killed when they played together in Denver. That should be reason enough to stay out of bad situations.

Marshall might need to re-evaluate the people in his life, including his wife. I don't know about you, but I don't think my wife would blade me, so something is off.

Marshall is not a bad dude. I mean it.

Maybe he just hangs with the wrong people -- including those close to him.

There's too much at stake, Brandon. Like living.

Prisco is an interested party here. He is too close to Marshall to offer an objective opinion. Even if he blames Marshall, he wouldn't say it because he nows that, if he does, he may never get to interview Marshall again. If this were a courtroom, and Prisco were a Judge, he would recuse himself from writing the article because he is biased. Take the high road Prisco, and stop always chasing the next interview, especially when it forces bias into your columns.

There's a reason I prefaced my comments the way I did, radeksrat. 

I could well have pretended to be a psychologist and said the evidence seemed to suggest a diagnosis of sociopath, which is all a practicing psychologist would have done given the lack of a direct examination.  Instead, I suggested his behavior sounded like he fit the definition, which I happen to know something about since I'm married to a psychologist. 

In any case, I'm neither more, nor less, qualified than Pete Prisco to offer an opinion on his behavior.  And, frankly, I think given his track record, I'm likely to be closer to the truth than Prisco, who seems to think Marshall's only problem is that he hangs around with bad people.

Kinda makes that "slip" on the McDonalds wrapper seem a little less believable in my opinion.

Prisco is like a wife in love with a cheating husband.  The husband is cheating behind her back, the signs are there but she is in love.  Prisco needs to stop the man crush.  If it looks like a skunk and acts like a skunk its a skunk.  It is him .

I am a psychologist and I think given the evidence of what has happened over his career it is pretty safe to say he is a sociopath or better put that he suffers from antisocial personlity disorder.  For what it is worth however many people would be considered antisocial though given the broad brush which it is painted with.  One thing is for certain his emotional intelligence leaves much to be desired and if he doesn't start making the changes he needs to he is going to ruin everything in his life he has worked for at the least.  He has been reported to be violent towards female figures in his life so that may have played a role and if it did he probably deserved what he got hopefully for him this is a wake up call and he changes and tweeks some things so that he is not a liability to society.

I'm not a psychologist, so take this for what it's worth, but Marshall really sounds like a sociopath.
It's worth nothing.  Not to be a jerk but you're nowhere close to being qualified to diagnose Brandon Marshall as anything because:

1) You have not examined him in anything resembling a clinical setting.

2) You lack the qualifications necessary to diagnose him with anything even if you had.

Glad they got rid of him, probably due to the off the field drama. However since being in Miami he has been trouble free up until this. It always seems that athlete's get involved with drama in their off-season. I dont wish anyone get stabbed not even Tom Brady. Until the FULL story comes out I cant comment on this any further. You need all the details to make a judgement regardless of his past.
