Martin headed for NFI list, may never return to the Dolphins
Not surprised at all Ingognito is involved, what a first class asshat.
I'm still trying to understand how a NFL offensive lineman can be bullied?
Have you watched Derek Newton this season?
Yes, the whole situation is really very silly isn't it. But I won't be at all surprised if we see a piece on the nightly national news soon suggesting there should be sensitivity training for NFL players re their interactions with both opponents and teammates. The NFL is definitely in full-blown wussification mode
and we are headed full speed towards touch football.
Bullying isn't always about size. And it's evidently a tactic around the league to bring out the fight in a player. I believe Prince Amukamara was bullied for two seasons, but says he runs with the "in group" on the Giants now -- which begs the question, if there's an "in" group then who's not a part of the "cool kids gang" and how does that hurt/help the team?
I heard it has something to do with a prank that went too far, but I don't know the details of it. I'd like to hear what it is all about.
Yeah, every party is being so mysterious about all this it piques my curiosity. Incognito being investigated, then saying he & Martin are cool. NFLPA saying we're not investigating, just doing an inquiry...? And Miami putting a starting OT on the non-football injury/illness list? They need all hands on deck on their O-line. Matin's own cryptic tweets. It's all very...
Did someone order a code red or did a full metal jacket blanket party? Hopefully it's not a truly serious issue.
Ninja shoulda broke Incognito's ankle when he had the chance.
Except it was the there way around.
So apparently here are the details...
Incogneto temp suspended from team for conduct detrimental to team per ESPN.
Really surprising, and I'd think unprecidented and probably points to the heart of the matter which is that Incognito has more issues than Martin. But the fact that the 'Phins couldn't handle this situation internally is what's most surprising to me ? Damn Coach, you let this get into the media and now the league is involved.
I've got 2 remaining questions now: (1) when does somebody play the race card here, and (2) with this incident, how totally wussified has the NFL become ?
Well considering he supposedly left "threatening and racially charged" messages on Martin's voice mail according to the Fox link above, I think Incognito brought race into it.
Who would've guessed Incognito was a racist douchebag bully???
Irony is he was on Miami's Player Leadership Council.
Frankly I'm very surprised Cooper is still on the Eagles team after his episode, so if a white player like Incognito is making explicit racial remarks, comments, threats, etc directly towards a black teammate, then I'm even more surprised the white guy is in south FLA this long, no matter how talented or how valuable he might be on the 'Phins team.
I tweeted Richie (lol) after the latest incident with Smith saying "karma's a *****".
I won't be satisfied until this dude's completely done in this league. He's a true definition of a POS.
I can't believe that after these details have come out, you STILL think this is a case of being a wuss.
Incognito went on a Twitter rampage yesterday trying to shout-down his critics...

I guess all of the sports media should expect to now be poked in the eyes and have their ankles twisted at the bottom of a pile.
Mike Golic said there's definitely something more than just using rookie's to pay for dinners/trips going on for the team to suspend Incognito. Martin is in his second year.
