Nothing like blaming the victim. I find this kind of response troubling. Maybe if there were veterans willing to take control of the locker room and give Martin some help in that situation, it wouldn't have gotten that far. On the other hand, if you're expecting rookies to either just deal with it or stand up for themselves on their own without taking it outside the locker room, you're just asking for someone to get pushed to the point where they bring a gun to the locker room and start blowing people away. People should be talking about how Martin did the right thing by leaving and reporting it to the team. A suspended Richie Incognito is better than a dead Richie Incognito, let alone however many teammates get caught in the crossfire. Rather than being labeled "soft," Martin should be applauded for doing the right thing.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
