    Men like to handle problems internally. If you have a beef with a dude, you settle it with that dude. You don't go and tell the world - and the media. That's a capital offense in an NFL locker room.

    Women tattle. Women go to HR. Women air their grievences to everyone else. Martin did a bitch move.
    Come on, the guy acted like a retard on the video. I can just imagine how he acted in the locker room, but probably like a total douche.

    He acted like a large, burly, manly-man - like they all are.

    Like I said - you need to be a man to understand the locker room mentality.

    He went over the line a bit, but not nearly (I suspect) to the extent you think he did.

    People seem to keep trying to equate a locker room to a law firm boardroom.

    On 15 October 2011, Luis Suárez was accused of racially abusing Patrice Evra,[110] and the English Football Association opened up an investigation into the incident.[110] On 16 November, the FA announced they would be charging Suárez, while his club, Liverpool, announced support for their player.[111] On 20 December, the FA concluded a seven-day hearing and fined Suárez £40,000 fine and banned him for eight matches for racially abusing Evra.[112] Suárez had used the word "negrito" towards Evra meaning "little black man" in Spanish. The term is used in South America as a term of endearment and not an insult.[113]

    On 23 October 2011, in a match between QPR and Chelsea, Anton Ferdinand alleged racial abuse by Chelsea captain, John Terry, claiming Terry called him a "****ing black ****" during the game; a claim denied by Terry.[114] On 1 November, the Metropolitan Police announced a formal investigation into the allegations.[115] In January 2012 Ferdinand received death threats and a bullet sent through the post.[116] On 1 February 2012 at Westminster Magistrates Court, Terry was accused of a racially-aggravated public order offence in relation to the game at Loftus Road on 23 October. He entered a not-guilty plea and stood trial on 9 July.[117] On 13 July, after a four-day trial, Terry was acquitted.[118] In July, following the court hearing Terry was charged by the Football Association with "using abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards Ferdinand and which included a reference to colour and/or race contrary to FA Rule E3[2]". In September 2012, after a four day hearing, he was found guilty, banned for four games and fined £220,000.[119] Evidence in his defence at Terry's trial had been given by his team-mate, Ashley Cole. Anton Ferdinand's brother Rio later referred to Cole via Twitter as a "choc ice" meaning someone who is black on the outside but white on the inside.

    On 29 May 2012 the BBC reported that Swindon Town had conceded, in a response to a solicitor's letter from Jonathan Tehoue, that manager Paolo Di Canio, a self-described fascist, had made an inappropriate remark to the player which Tehoue deemed to be racist.

    Just a sampling...

    As I said...I played the game for over 25 years in the states and with club players around Woodbridge and Ipswitch. Cuban players do it. Brazilian players do it. British players do it. American players do it. All? Of course not. A lot? You bet. Usually...its trash talk...a way to get someone off their game, get them thinking more about the player than the next play.
    I played soccer for years and I never heard any player come anywhere close to what Incognito said and did to his own teammate. None of the examples you used are in any way comparable. I think things are often said in the heat of games that players later regret. That is not the case here.

    Not at all, but you don't have to act like a COMPLETE ass either.

    No, I'd just equate it to what minimal human conduct ought to be like. "It's just the locker room" is no longer an acceptable excuse for sub-human conduct.

    Incognition acted far worse than a retard and the rest of your R.I.P.s, keep them coming..
    He just validated all the bullying and hazing in high school just by the fact that local yokals are debating whether he shouldn't be punished..I suspect Jerry Jones needs a good offensive lineman .

From what I understand right now its a he said he said situation. Sounds like Martin got ridden pretty hard, and Ingconito was supposedly supposed to toughen the man up because the coaching staff thought the guy was timid. It also sounds like they were friends and had a falling out. Quite frankly this being the NFL and all these are grown ass men and what they do to each other is their business and between themselves. Its a violent sport loaded with type A personalities, there aint much you can do to change that. If Martin didn't like the way he was treated he had the option of leaving, which he took. Maybe he can get hooked up with another team. I doubt it but you never know.
    I can't imagine why Martin would fall out with a guy who threatened to kill him, assault his mother, and participate in the gang rape of his sister. Guess he's just not the 'manly man' that Incognito is.

    And I"it's a violent sport" is about the lamest excuse imaginable for this Neanderthal behavior.

    Yeah, I would say that's a little more than being manly in the locker room. I think this guy is probably really arrogant and obviously a little out of control too.
