At first when I heard about this story last week, I was thinking that this story of "bullying" in the NFL would be another ridiculous story to outrage the masses in regards to a crusade against "bullying".
Because of that, I will not call Richie Incognito a bully. He's a Grade-A douchebag who needed to be dealt with.
The fear now will be that the NFL will crack down on "hazing" and no one will longer be able to do the traditional and comical forms of hazing. (Like shaving heads and ridiculous outfits)
Johnathan Martin left the team citing emotional issues.
Do I think Incognito got what he deserved? Yes, but he also deserved a country boy ass whooping along with it.
Martin and Incognito's careers in the NFL I believe are over.
Incognito because of selfishness and destructive behavior cited in text messages with racial slurs and threats, along with the video posted by TMZ showing him loud and out of control in a Ft Lauderdale pool hall.
Martin because if he couldn't pop that guy in the mouth to deal with it, then he lacks the mental toughness to survive the NFL.
Because lineman have to be tough mentally and physically. Martin proved he is none of those to be able to lock horns with the Clay Matthew's, Ndaumakong Suh's, and Mario Williams's.
It's an unfortunate incident, Incognito got what he deserves, but Martin did more damage in my opinion to his stock and reputation to his peers.
