    Agreed. Who headed up the Dolphins' Team Leadership Council, anyway, and why didn't he do anything? Oh, I see: that would be Richie Incognito. :eek:

    If it is a gay thing then RI took this to a whole other level of a hate crime and could be in serious trouble.

    Will rules be written to protect rooks from older players looting them?

    If the allegations against Incongnito are true (I trust Shefter as far as I could throw King Kong Bundy), I can understand Frozen's line of thinking. There were reported threats against Martin's family and to be honest, if I had a problem like that with somebody threatening that, I'm not sure what I would do.

    I probably would have done something similar to what Jacques Rougeau did to the Dynamite Kid back in the 80's. That could always escalate the situation, although I would be so enraged by some piece of garbage threatening my family that I would want to make sure that he faces the consequences for doing so.

    They don't need new rules. Most of the alleged behavior is covered under the criminal code.

    As well as basic workplace policies...

    I'm sure memos will be sent out to all 32 teams to remind them of such things.

    this is really escalating. Now there are rumors the Justice Department is looking at starting an investigation.

    This whole story has a major creep factor to me. Bullying right.

    He sounds like a nut job to me.

    If Dez doesn't know the helmet rule then it isn't too surprising that other players will need to reminded of workplace policies. :D

    After Hernandez going all thugee on people, this sort of thing is going to get a lot more serious consideration. The Ha-Ha jock humor BS isn't going to continue to cut it.

    Wow. Just wow. "He must be gay" -- that's such ignorant BS. Do you honestly think someone would have to be gay to be affected by harassment of this nature?

    Other things to consider here are this. First, he likely didn't trust his coaches to do anything about it -- after these guys knew to some extent about the behaviors. Second, to all the folks saying that Martin should have attacked him or fought back, that would seem to be an idiotic thing to do if he'd been bullied by others. Also, he'd probably get his tail kicked. He's a big guy but in all likelihood Incognito would destroy him.
