It is certainly not fair to say that the Dolphins allowed the locker room to get out of control when the alleged victim did not complain and actually laughed at his treatment. Other players are talking about how Incognito stood up for Martin over and over again, even in fights during practice. Tannehill said that he thought Martin and Incognito were best friends. This story just doesn't make sense.
Incognito probably deserves plenty of blame for this, but Martin never seemed to give any indication that there was a problem. For that, I think Martin deserves some of the blame. As it stands now, it seems like nobody realized that Martin was having any kind of problems, and then one day he just left.
More will certainly come out over the next few days/weeks, but it is certainly not as black and white as it appeared when the voicemails were released on Monday.
