Handling your s-hit doesn't mean shooting someone.

When I was a 21 year old rookie in the car business, there was a "bully".....you know, the kind of know it all who ruled the roost. He was a bigger, experienced 30 year old who tried to intimidate and embarrass me. I slapped him hard in the face in front of everyone my third day on the job. I kept my job, excelled, gained respect and he wound up leaving about 6 weeks later. I became the GSM at age 25 and worked there for 6 years.
LOL, and then you woke up

What are you trying to say? That you'd rather be buddies with Incognito instead because he 'has a pair'?

Martin seems like a nice guy. I'll hang out with him instead...

I have nothing to prove.

Men should act like men.

NFL Slurs in Incognito's messages - ESPN
Yeah, Eddie, I'm sure you'd do just as well dealing with Incognito. You'd show them how much of a tough guy you are.

Actually, that wouldn't work either if he used the same racial slurs towards patrons as he did against his teammate. Then there would be civil suits. Miami should part ways with him as quick as the Pat's did with Hernandez. Then again, if the Fins are one of those types of organizations that turn a blind eye to this type of thing until it hits the public eye, maybe a complete overhaul is neccessary. There is no place for that type of behavior in a team environment.
Civil suits my ass. I think he's gotta realize that behavior such as his outside the NFL cocoon might get him shot and killed.

If Incognito did in fact urinate in Martin's drink I think that should be considered assault and the guy needs to do time.

That being said, isn't Jonathan Martin an NFL OFFENSIVE LINEMAN?!?!?! Isn't he 6'6" 330? How in the heck can he let ANYONE bully him? I don't understand it. I don't care how big the person was, if they urinated in my drink I'm physically assaulting them, jail be damned they are going to the hospital. I may need a crow bar or baseball bat for a guy Incognito's size but he's going down one way or another. It is the only appropriate response as a man when another man disrespects you in that manner. I'd love to say I'm more evolved than that but.... I'm not.

End of the day, Martin needs to get tougher if he's going to play pro ball but the Dolphins needs to cut loose Incognito and any other players involved. Incognito sounds like he need psychiatric care. Sounds like their coaching staff is letting things get way out of control.
Agreed.

The problem is that you guys think just cause he's big and a football player that he should be some kind of tough guy. He played college ball at Stanford and almost went to Harvard. This is his father...

Dr. Gus Martin Home Page

Considering that is his background and that he always was the biggest, he probably never had to stand up for himself. So, when he got to the NFL, he didn't know how to deal.

That said, you don't reprimand the bullied, you reprimand the bully.

Also, trying to show how tough you are and how much you can stand up to someone who disrespects you or in front of a woman is exactly how people get knives in their throats and bullets in the head.

Not macho. Not a bully. But tough enough to stand up for himself and his loved ones. Any man needs that.

Heard this on the radio today & thought it was spot on. It went something like this -

All the internet tough guys typing on their keyboard to just stand up to Incognito, are very likely the same tough guys who are afraid to knock on their neighbors door to request they turn the music down.

I actually think it's cool that his father raised a guy who is smart, sensitive, and shuns confrontations despite biologically being a giant.

It shows a higher side of evolution (as someone else mentioned).

I mean, are we really monkeys that must answer threats with physical violence or at least threats of physical violence.

That's what standing up for yourself is. It's not telling another person to leave you alone. It's saying, "I'll find a way to hurt you badly if you keep it up."

Real civilized.

I also realize this is the pro football forum and not the best place to start this sort of dialogue.
