Re: T Johnathan Martin headed for NFI list, may never return to the Dolphins
Apparently, the ONLY reason Martin looked like a buddy of Incognito is that he was trying to fit in.
Right now, the Dolphins players coming out in support of the very well known POS Incognito look like a bunch of punks. They circle the wagon because they damn well know this was way beyond hazing and was straight up harassment. And it makes their franchise look like crap.
Based on history, the NFL is going to come down hard on this and I have no doubt that policies will be instituted for all franchises. Sadly, the tradition of silly/friendly hazing to build camaraderie among teammates will get broad-brushed by this incident.
Which would be a shame. Some things are innocent traditions like carrying pads, shaving heads, singing college fight songs, etc. But this Incognito crap is not one of them.
