    Even if I agree that this has been taken to ridiculous proportions in the media, what an incredibly stupid thing to say.

    I wonder if that coach is actually trying to get fired?

    Yeah, but they cannot win either way. The media is going to get them either way. The coach may decide it's better to go down fighting.

    Wait..a coach was over heard..A Coach....who over hear?

    How in the world is this acceptable journalism. This ******* writes what ever he wants..and doesnt have to have a lick of resources to do so.

    It's the media trying to let this linger b/c it's a good story, I BET if any of our beat writers overheard a coach say I feel bad for Martin & hope he is doing well that would NOT be reported.

    Look I don't know the whole story but the media is known to overreact a little bit & this maybe a case in which it is true we won't know for sure until the investigation is over. I even heard one of the SC anchors say seems to be a BFF argument between Incognito & Martin after they talked about Incognitos interview.

    Richie Incognito has a past? Judging from some of the stuff I've read on here, you'd think he's the Dalai Lama.

    It is overblown. I still dont understand how this incident became such a big story. Must be an agenda from a high rank somewhere

    It is overblown. Case in point: An article dedicated to someone saying it's overblown. Shame on you Beasley

    This is primarily about the "N" word and Ritchie using it and being an easy target and easy ratings. It is overblown and stupid and the entire league should be smart and dig in their heals because if not it opens the door to all kinds of PC headaches.

    I challenge ANY team to live up to the standards of NEVER touching ANYONE with a past, like, say.......

    Domestic violence. I mean, actually beating up a spouse. After all, if you know a guy has a history of
    BULLYING...right?

    Not letting anyone off the hook. At the same time though, with what we do know, the fact it is a lead story on NBC's Today Show and has been talked about in great length on CNN and Fox News shows it is overblown. There was a story in my local newspaper today(here in Pennsylvania) where they interviewed multiple high school coaches about the topic of "bullying in the locker room" and the whole story was based off the "scandal in Miami". Doesn't really matter what the investigation finds, it should never have been as big of a story as it has been.

    Jon Martin has created the biggest distraction ever in the league. Not hyperbolic here. I really believe this.

    It's taking the same arc as Steroids.

    Notice how nobody really gives a **** about that now, despite the fact that
    it's still going on?

    Bryant McKinnie agrees about scandal being overblown.

    He might have said that, but I bet that coach -- whoever he is -- has updated his resume in the last two weeks.

    Sometimes people just don't learn, even when everyone gets fired. **** Cheney worked in the Nixon White House and has said many times the main thing he took away from it was not that Nixon did anything wrong, but that the president needs to be isolated from responsibility and prosecution better.

    Reminds of that old saying, "It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it." I just went and looked up the quote to make sure of the wording. It's Upton Sinclair. Which makes sense.
