    All this bullying talk is laughable. If Martin didn't have such soft shoulders, we wouldn't have this issue today. I predict martin never plays football again.

    Soccer is a more feminine sport, football is a different animal.

    I think he will - but I'm doubting that it's with Miami. I believe that he was a mid-1st round selection a couple years ago, so that's not a scrub draft spot.

    Yeah but now everyone knows how soft he is. It's like blood in the water.

    I think someone that's really hurting for a tackle would take a chance on him, but he'd probably be one of the worst paid tackles out there, and probably play RT to protect against a 2nd rusher and not the star DE.

    He's gonna need to re-earn his stripes.

    Yes there have. And there were reports that he went to business classes, charm school, and is taking anger management. Im not trying to paint him as a saint...but you keep wanting to hearken to the past while ignoring the FACT that his CURRENT teammates support him.

The NFL will need to look at all the relevant evidence and if there is a larger problem should deal with it.
    This is what I have said. From his freshman year at Nebraska to now, Incognito has either been suspended or ties were cut by every team for which he has played. His tweets that I've seen are just schoolyard stupid. I mean, seriously, tweeting that you want to crap in someone's mouth? That someone's a "big weirdo"?

    But if he threatened harm to Martin's family, that's not pranks or "hazing"; that's a crime. And I'm not buying all the "Boys will be boys" stuff either because there are plenty of NFL players who don't behave the way Incognito does.

Other players in the league have supported him as well.
    As I said, this says far more about the culture of the Miami Dolphins than anything else. What do they see in Incognito that the coaches of Nebraska, Oregon, and the St. Louis Cardinals missed? The guy is an embarrassment to the game.

    Yet people on here continue to post that this sort of stuff is all part of the 'locker room culture' and therefore we should just accept it. Again, read the Cam Cleland interview posted earlier in this thread.

    Having his current teammates - at least the vocal few - support him is meaningless, other than to perhaps underline that this is one sick locker room.
