Vince Howard,Friday Night Lights.
“Before football, I was vgoin’ nowhere fast. Straight to juvie. Playin’ for the East Dillon Lions probably saved my life. I got a bond with my teammates that will never be broken. I got a coach that’s been like a father to me. He shows up and gives 100% every game, every practice. It’s more then just a game for us. Football is our life.”

You know what is really interesting about Sons of Anarchy? So many of the viewers buy into the club life and how “things are supposed to be done” when in reality the entire show is about how the customs of masculinity found in the MC world ultimately fail these guys.
They are put into an environment where there are social expectations of how “men” are supposed to handle their issues. They can’t admit vulnerability or weakness - something Gemma further reinforces in Jax - you see her saying this exact thing to him in the next episode. And, oh, funny enough, this is also the exact same reason Gemma gave Nero for why JT had to be murdered. He was weak. He was a liability.
The entire club code is so twisted because it gives these guys a way to rationalize their brutality and violence. You wronged me. I wrong you back. You hurt me. I hurt you worse.
This mindset leads to violence becoming an every day affair, it leads to any slight being made against any member of the club the potential to incite a full on war because otherwise this would mean you are admitting to some sort of weakness. You aren’t allowed to resolve conflict by any other means because violence has become second nature and easy, and worse EXPECTED.
