    Think of the children!!! Yep, the Sally Struthers appeal. HS and college ball are not the NFL.

    They're also watching Chris Brown perform somewhere and a whole host of other such luminaries. Heck I've even seen HS age children watching Snoop Dogg, now there's a role model. Sorry, the what about the children routine isn't cutting it.

    Re: Incognito- what should the punishment be?

    The fact that this story got out to the media shows how cowardly this guy is (not Incognito, but the other dude). Sorry if I don't have much sympathy for a grown up man, in professional football, with his own will and self-determination. Don't like how you're being treated? Leave, but don't make a big fuss because you couldn't hang. Just leave and cite irreconcilable differences or something that doesn't bring the spot light down on your whole team. Is Incognito a D-bag? Maybe, but he's also a professional athlete and that is their culture.

    I saw ban football all together. It causes so many brain injuries and even death even when hits are done properly, and obviously rugby is just plain stupid.

    I'm more concerned with how much money the NFL aside from the Packers and Giants sucks out of local taxpayers. $35 parking, billion dollar stadiums, and the NFL is tax exempt except those 2 teams?

    Obviously they need to be investigated and taxed!

    As for the coach, ownership, et al., I would need to know more about their role in this situation. My guess is that they created or allowed a culture where this sort of nonsense was allowed to happen. If that's the case, they need a punishment that will be effective as a deterrent for the heads of every other team.

    I don't buy into the "oh it's just football" and "Martin needs to just man up" arguments. Yes, you need to be physically and mentally tough to play football and my guess is that since Martin made it that far, he is probably pretty tough. It must have just gone too far for him. I know the racial slur and the threat were too far for me. The fact that he didn't go to any of his coaches or other team leadership makes me think the treatment against him was endorsed by them so I don't blame him for leaving.

    I think in sports like football, people don't often draw the line between being tough and being abusive. You don't have to be the latter to be the former. Incognito doesn't seem to have learned the difference.
    listen to a radio station that plays and rap and you will hear more slurs that were told in this story

    I'm actually quite amused at all the gushing over this. OMG...really? People speak harshly...maybe even 'bully' players? WHy...this must be some NEW thing. Ive NEVER heard a coach tell a player to put on a skirt, or stop hitting like a girl, or any such thing...certainly not back in the 70's and 80's when I played. Why...these revelations are as shocking as when we found out that Barry Bonds and others used (gasp) steroids! Who fricken knew? I mean...other than ANYONE that watched or was around the game since the mid 80's...
    "Maybe" he crossed the line? Are you serious? You do know he threatened to kill Martin? That's a crime. But whether criminal or not, these are grown men who are paid a lot of money to DO A JOB. It's not a high school locker room. There are people who think hazing is okay. We now know it's not. It's no longer sanctioned, and is criminal in some instances.

    It's unnecessary to harass someone who is there to do his job. Doesn't matter if his coach told him to do something or not (if you believe that). Icognito is a grown man. He is responsible for his actions. The fact that he is now reporting that the coach told him to toughen Martin up is further evidence of Incognito's immaturity. Like a kid who says that "Eddie told me to do it!" when he gets in trouble with his parents.

    The guy's probably out of control because of steroids. Which is another reason he should be fired. He's been fired before for his over the line behavior. You can be manly and tough without harming your team mates. They are supposed to be on teh same team, after all. How could they possibly work together, under these circumstances? Martin is receiving treatment. Assuming Martin isn't delicate emotionally, which is a safe assumption, that tells me that Incognito was definitely over the line, unrelenting, personally offensive, threatening, and other team mates were too scared of Incognito to offer support or assistance. Ingocgnito is a Loser, with a capital L. He should go. Or more of these offenses will occur. A Loser is a Loser. Team should cut its losses & get rid of the wild card.

    Incognito can go home, look in the mirror, and bully himself all day if he wants. He'll have plenty of time for that, since he'll be unemployed.

    More 'Manly man' behavior by the Miami Scumbag Incognito. Sure is a manly guy - I can see why you guys like him so much.
