The American Psychological Association has released a new study, entitled, “Psychology of Men & Masculinity,” and the findings are going to blow your minds. It turns out that college football players who cry tend to have higher self-esteems and are all-around better players than those who don’t.
SEE DAD? WHO’S THE BIG F*CKING CRYBABY NOW???
“Overall, college football players who… are emotionally expressive are more likely to have a mental edge on and off the field,” said psychologist Jesse Steinfeldt, PhD, of Indiana University-Bloomington, a co-authored of the study.

The APA studied 150 student-athletes currently on college football rosters, and the male players involved had a median age of 19 and were mostly white. The players were split into four groups and read a story about a football player named Jack, who cries after losing a football game, and the players then responded with their thoughts on Jack’s sissy boy attitude.
