    Incognito/Martin controversy

    This thing is getting stranger and stranger.

    At first I thought that Incognito was completely in the wrong...based on what was reported.

    Now, other team members are saying that they were really good friends on and off the field and often verbally sparred together.

    Even though Incognito made racial comments I really didn't think he was a racist. I thought it was more just razzing...like black players do to each other. It was not serious.

    Now it's been reported that the coaches and/or managers had some input.

    It's just weird.

    As a football fanatic, I've been keeping up on this but due to surgery on my arm, I can't type much right now. Hopefully I'll feel better later to add my two cents.

    Was listening to a radio show this morning that said pretty much the same thing. They also pointed out the both of Martin's parents are lawyers and suggested that they may be blowing all of this out of proportion in the hope of getting a pay day from the team and or league.

    Who knows.

    I am telling you everyone is being called names just what the players do in the locker room and in a big pile-up on the feild they talk crap about Momma's and anything else . Now maybe someone can make some extra cash and not play and save thier body from being broke down .

    I have verbally sparred with a lot of my friends, never once have I used the words "I will kill you.".

    Any adult male playing in the NFL should be able to handle any verbal abuse. It's not kindergarten, folks. Beyond that, my opinion is a guy wanting to be tough vs a guy who can't take it.

    People react differently to situations that's human nature.The one thing that never bothered me,is someone calling me a name.All i could tell them,whatever they think i am today,tomorrow isn't looking any better.Name calling is childish,threats are a whole different story.

    Who cares??????

    I don't know why this is national news, Sister is right it must be a slow news day.

    At least the fat guy in Toronto is mayor of North America's 4th or 5th largest city (but I still really don't care about that either)

    Well, I guess I don't care all that much but we can't discuss world hunger 24/7.

    Incognito is an idiot and Martin is a wimp.

    I wouldn't want either one as a team mate.
