Some say Martin, a Stanford graduate who went about his business quietly, handled the situation well. But pro football is a macho world, and some players believe Martin should have responded more firmly.
Many Miami players spoke out about the matter for the first time on Wednesday — and with at least one questioning Jonathan Martin’s motives.
Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Lydon Murtha says Richie Incognito is being made a “scapegoat” in the wake of Jonathan Martin leaving the team due to alleged bullying in the locker room.
Incognito is receiving a pass for using racial slurs — at least from his teammates — because he’s considered “an honorary black man,” according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
The reason that the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin incident will not go away any time soon is that everyone can relate to it.
It’s not that the Giants really need a reminder about harassment in the workplace, but Tom Coughlin said he’s not taking any chances.
Barber says “every team wants a guy” like Incognito, who was suspended indefinitely by the Dolphins this week for allegedly bullying teammate Jonathan Martin.
Antrel Rolle clarified that he’s against bullying, and that Martin is not as much to blame as Incognito. He did maintain, however, that Martin “does take some accountability.”
We should be disgusted by anyone who condones Incognito, excuses Incognito or ignores Incognito. We should be disgusted by anyone who blames Martin, teases Martin or trivializes Martin.
“Richie Incognito, is he wrong? Absolutely,” Rolle told Joe & Evan. “But I think the other guy is just as much to blame because he’s allowed it to happen.”
The NFL Players Association said Tuesday that it will insist on a fair investigation for all involved in the Miami Dolphins harassment case.
In the stadium program sold at the Miami Dolphins’ game on Halloween, Richie Incognito was asked who’s the easiest teammate to scare. His answer: Jonathan Martin.

Boomer and Craig got Tuesday’s radio program started by talking about the bullying incident down in Miami involving Richie Incognito and his alleged mark, Jonathan Martin.
Giants kicker Josh Brown has known Richie Incognito a long time, and said it pains him to see what his former teammate has gotten himself involved in. But Brown isn’t surprised by it at all.
