Default Re: T Johnathan Martin headed for NFI list, may never return to the Dolphins

a bad situation, but there are some good discussions resulting from it. depression and mental illness, bullying, acceptable social norms, and many others. hopefully these talks will help bring about some change for the better. i dont think much of that applies in this situation though, because ...

And this is where I think the story has become lost in translation. Incognito was more than just a bully. Dude crossed so many lines that his behavior goes into the category of mental depravity. This kind of mind does not hear reason, does not respond to respect, does not back down in confrontation or even getting his own ass kicked in.

Johnathan Martin's teammates have said he has stood up for himself and fought other linemen. Dude is not the wimp he's being portrayed.
incognito is nuckin futs. if i said a year ago that a headline would read "richie incognito torments teammate to the point of quitting", anyone who wouldnt have believed it would lose ten common sense points. without ever giving the victim a name, it was a very plausible and probably scenario. martin just happened to be the victim's name.

if i said in 10 years a headline will read "richie incognito arrested on suspicion of double homicide". will you be surprised? of course not, and again a victim's name isnt required because it could be anybody. what's going to happen when he doesnt have 300lb manliest of men to let his mental instability out on? what happens when he runs out of money? he's already stealing from teammates, he's going to have to fund his lifestyle somehow and i doubt it's going to be by working at home depot. dude is a sociopath and a danger to anyone around him.
