So there is a twist in the Martin/Incognito saga

Gotta call bullshit on this one...

If there is a singular cause as to why our society is spiralling[sic] downhill its more likely that it is the intolerance of people who dont look or behave the way someone else wants/expects them to.

 

 

 

I'm closer to 50 than 40, have two homes, three cars, a 25+ year marriage, a 6 figure salary, a child through college, and less than 20k in debt.  By most standards a successful and "grown-up" man.

 

 

But I have some very close friend who I talk to in text messages and emails and board postings in ways that are not that far from what you see in the published exchanges between Martin and Incognito.  We regularly use racial epithets towards each other and talk about the perverted sexual relations we are going to have or have had with each others wives and mothers.  Is it stupid? Sure.  Would I be slightly embarrassed if certain people I know read them? Maybe.  But its a damned long way from whats wrong with our society.

 

They behave like 16 yo degenerates.....and that is a fact.

You could probably find a similar text exchange on every team.....numerous times.

Yes to both....what is your point?

 

Incognito is a 30 yo grown man with kids.  He still sounds like an idiot.

 I always follow the advice from an attorney friend of mine.....don't ever put anything in writing (e-mail or text) that you would not want on the front page of the paper.  It too often comes back to take a big bite out of your butt.

Since when did having children and/or being 30 make a person smart? Biology and evolution has made that pretty easy to do.

After reading those texts, I wouldn't be surprised if Martin is gay and this whole thing came from him not being comfortable with his homosexuality in front of his straight teammates.  The sad truth is you can't be openly gay in the NFL.  Maybe some of his teammates figured that out and that's where the bullying came from.  Incognito was always talking about getting pussy and all the girls he was hanging out with, but Martin always kind of deflected that talk and never mentioned any of the girls he was seeing.  There are a few times Martin talks about girls and the stripper picture, but who knows if that's just a cover up or he's just not as horny as Incognito.  

 

If he quit football to truly embrace who he is, more power to him.  But he didn't need to drag Incognito with him because from those text messages he never crossed the line.  All just seemed like friendly banter and good-natured ribbing.  Judging from the texts, I don't think Incognito came from a place of hate.
