Interesting how this article skirts the real issue. Incognito used RACIST insults! To call a black man a “baby” for not “manning up” to such things is ignoring the much deeper issues at play. Martin had every right to expect that he was an equal team member of the Dolphins, and entitled to every bit of respect that a white teammate would get.

I CAN’T BELIEVE I EVEN HAVE TO SPELL THIS OUT! IT’S THE 21ST CENTURY FOR CRYIN’ OUT LOUD!

I guarantee you that if it had been “You’re a jerk, you’re a loser, you stick”, we wouldn’t even be having this discussion.

That said, I wish Martin had sucker punched him. I know I would have (ok, if I were a 300 lb lineman…)

No, you wouldn’t have punched him in the nose. The guy is on the leadership council and is apparently super popular within the organization. I feel sorry for any decent human being who is trapped on or employed by those folks, because it sounds like they encourage this kind of behavior.

If you’ve been following the Jonathan Martin story in the NFL, where he left The Miami Dolphins last week after being subjected to extreme incidents of bullying that went way beyond routine hazing, it’s starting to appear that this is something that was encouraged by Dolphins coaches.

“routine hazing”? This shouldn’t exist, and the use of “routine” as part of this indicates that it is still an issue among sports teams, and probably still at all levels. You do not build camaraderie and a feeling of “family” in a new member of a group by abusing them.

Yeah this whole episode has just been very troubling. I’ve been a football fan a long time, spend much of Sunday afternoons in front of the tube, follow the day to day analysis, etc etc. But it seems like there’s just one development after another, kind of a slow drip, drip, drip of obnoxiousness that’s starting to appall me. There was Bounty-gate of course. There was the recent report on the affect of head trama on former players and the injuries that leave some players nearly crippled and now this stuff. It’s true that locker-room boorishness has been around forever, rookies being taped to goalposts, etc, which quite frankly I find pretty fucking weird and degrading. But it’s all starting to get to be a bit much. And maybe that’s what it’s always been—a slightly refined form of barbarism, only a few degrees above watching gladiators in the Roman coliseums.
