Re: Dolphins players accused of bullying teammates
I wonder if Martin ever stood up or if his teammates ever took notice of the way Incognito was treating him. It appears that Incognito had a beef with Martin that has lasted for 2 seasons now. It is also disturbing that Martin had no one to turn to, not another offensive lineman, not a coach, not a single player. To be honest any time they put a mic in front of a Dolphin player and ask him about the situation they end up looking like fools.
But the more you look at it, what were the Dolphins doing? They have Pouncy who was photographed with a Free Hernandez hat on earlier this off season and has been connected with Hernandez in a interstate gun running organization. Kind of class individual you want in your locker room. They had Martin walk away from the team because of everything Incognito was doing 2 days before a Thursday night game, a game in which everyone played before they decided to look any further.
The thing I see is your paid to win in the NFL. If Pouncey received a subpoena for grand jury testimony against Hernandez about his past I would imagine any business outside of professional sports would suspend him. If Martin walks away from the team sighting emotional distress two days before game day don't you think someone may want to look a little deeper before a game? IMO Philbin is a coward. He could have made a difference in the locker room but he decided that winning was more important. If everything goes according to schedule the Dolphins will have won 2 games during this firestorm and be looking at a wild card spot. Winning is everything in the NFL.
