    Idk man. I don't think the threats of life and racial slurs happen. I played football in high school and serve in one of the most testosterone driven occupations in the world and that stuff doesn't happen. My big point is that Martin should have said something to someone within the organization before he went public with this. It's an unwritten rule that you try to handle stuff like this in house before escalating it.

    Nothing should happen to him by the league, IMO. If the Fins want to get rid of him, they should. However, he'll get another job as soon as he's waived.

    The overwhelming majority of players are siding with Incognito - and this includes black players. They think of Martin as a "snitch" who essentially went outside the chain of command to tattle on a teammate. He'll be shark chum in most locker rooms.

    Incognito is a Pro Bowler, don't forget. He has exactly the attitude most franchises want in an O-Lineman.

    It says more about Martin than Incognito, who can essentially take the Nuremberg defense now and say "management told me to do it". Stanford may field some brilliant people, but it appears to come at a price. I never thought I'd see a 320 pound pussy.

    Incognito was pretty much of a pariah before this incident. This is his last rodeo.

    I'm going to throw this out there.

    The NFL is a workplace. It's a business and the players are unionized workers.

    He has a history for sure, but for the most part it was opposing teams that had the problem with him. He was a complete dick at Nebraska, and has basically been considered the Conrad Dobler of today's NFL. Of course, now he's only considered the 2nd dirtiest player, now that Ndamukong Suh's here.

    In the end, most teams will recognize him as a VERY competent guard who will go into the trenches with you and for you. If he's waived or released, he gets another job within a week - without question.

    I bet he will do a year of counselling and play again.

    that his team mates are speaking out in his support tells me this guy is a player who has worth to an NFL team in need of a good offensive lineman. i remember when folks insisted vick would never make it back to the NFL. we know how that prediction wound up

    normally, as management, when two union represented employees have a disagreement, i send the issue to the union and have them solve it

    but not this time, because it appears management reached out to incognito to 'toughen up' martin. management can't issue such an assignment to the employee and then bust him for following orders

    Well, there's a difference there. Vick was incarcerated for close to 2 years, so the doubt on him playing again had more to do with conditioning than it did character. It's the same reason why Plaxico Burress, with regard to his career, shot himself in the foot after shooting himself in the leg. When you're taken out of the game for a couple years and sent to prison, you lose the ability to compete at the highest level.

    With Incognito, he's ready to play at any time. Now he won't play with the Dolphins again, and he'll be out for a month because they are giving him a 4 game "conduct detriment" suspension (strictly for financial purposes).

    That's another thing that made me sick. The rest of his contract year supposedly had a value of around 4 million, and the Fins could give him a 4 game conduct suspension to save just over a million dollars. Someone answer this for me - if you're a billion dollar franchise with a typical NFL payroll, is it worth saving a million dollars by doing this, as opposed to the PR coals you're going to get raked over for keeping someone that's supposedly this racist, this dirty, and this inhuman?

    I'd just pay the money for the ability to wipe my hands clean of him, were he this heinous. As it is, most NFL analysts and experts are ostracizing the franchise - and this can't help matters much.
