Martin leaves Dolphins to deal with emotional issues

This is as odd a story as I've seen in a long time.

 

So what's your read?

Martin wrote on his FB "Dont believe everything you read online"....it looks to me like the media is taking a story and blowing it way out of proportion.

And that's the reaction I expect most folks to have.

 

A professional offensive lineman with 'emotional problems'?

 

The trenches are a nasty place, not for the faint of heart.

 

I'm wondering though, how many would look at this and blame his teammates for being a--holes to him.

I'm sure everyone has a line where if they are constantly harassed they'll eventually say "enough is enough"

Not as odd as the Te'o story. Not even close.

 

But, as to what I think about it? I think it's a horrible situation. I'm not sure whether Martin has some emotional issues, the team has gone beyond the boundaries of hazing (into bullying), or both. Either way, the Dolphins have not handled this situation well at all, starting with their coach and going on down.

 

I played organized sports at varying levels. I went to college. I know the types of things that are said when a few guys are together, much less 70+, but there is a limit. Everyone has boundaries. I think some of the players have pushed those boundaries, and it went too far. I think that the coaching staff needs to step in when enough is enough, along with the captains of the team.

 

Also, I'd really like to have Martin as a back-up... so...

I remember thinking "in the NFL" but apparently I didn't type it out :lol:

 

I'll give you that the Te'o story was weirder.

 

Whether or not I'd want Martin here is something I'd definitely have to think about.  Probably need more info as to what really happened.

If it's Incognito leading the charge, then your last question seems somewhat valid.

 

I'm also kind of interested if anything like this registered on any teams psychological profile of him during the draft process and also if it was a factor in his draft stock dropping from top 15 to 2nd round

Matin has yet to file a complaint with the NFLPA, fearing retribution. It's almost becoming a Hard Knocks after school special
