In response to trouts' comment:
Still think Incognito deserves an apology? This guy is scum and the last guy the Patriots should bring on board.
Incognito needed his azz beat down or at the very least should have received a legit physical retaliation attempt by Martin on him and Incog the others woulda ended this punking of JM before it got to the point that it has. I know, "VIOLENCE DOESN'T SOLVE ANYTHING!!!" Bull-SHYTE.........I've been in football locker rooms at every level and even did a stint in the US Armed Forces boot camps afterwards to get control of my own discipline afterwards, and I can tell you that in all cases, there is a "fight or flight" element that is part of this "man's world" culture that lends to building a mentally and emotionally tough corps. The weak run and better keep running just as JM has. Was this an extreme case???? ABSOLUTELY. But, had Martin held his ground from the beginning, the BYTCH slapping would have come to end before it got to this. I know it sounds like a barbaric world, AND IT IS! Sure, change is coming, and is needed......but IMO, JM shoulda stood up as is the normal response and the sharks would have scattered from there. Apology to Incog? NO. But JM shouldn't be playing on this playground if he isn't willing to defend himself either. I know, I know, I am stupid and this is 2014 and everyone has the right to work in a safe environment.....blah, blah, blah.........Sorry, it is what it is, A VERY VIOLENT WORLD that men enter into when they pursue the NFL as a profession and they know it from the time they are kids in Pop Warner. Don't like it? Go make your millions for simply being the biggest and strongest athelte from your neck of the wooods doing something else........Good luck with that. And no, we don't need anyone with this kind of baggage on the NE Patriots. My bet is we already have that element in the locker room, but we also don't have those who let themselves get punked like JM did and let it get out of control.....Again, it is what it is, right or wrong.
I think your perspectivce is pretty twisted. THe rule of law applies to everyone equally. It applies to all places of work. ANd it also applies to playgrounds and playing fields by the way. There is no exception morally or legally for pampered self important professional atheletes even if you want there to be.
Martin does not have to fight someone to earn his rights under the Constitution. Do you? Martin likes to play football. He was good enough to be a very good college player and then good enough to start for an NFL team. That is saying something about his general ability and preparedness. And he has become that good without being the sort of a-$$ that too many creeps and criminals in professional sports are.
You say there is no place for Martin because he does not fight like some gladiator without a choice. But evidently for you there is a place for all kinds of thugs and hardened criminals.
No. Martin has right to play the game. He has a right to try to make a living. He even has a right to try to make more money than most posters here. And there is zero requirement that he be or become a hardened criminal to do so. The criminals on the other hand have the right to go to jail. ANd they should. WHen they are caught being thugs they should go to jail. Period.
Your perspective is unAmerican. It is immoral. It flies in the face of Christianity, Islam, Judiasm and pretty much every major religion. It is flies in the face of the Constitution and of legislated laws.
And by the way, your perspective is completely unnecessary for any and all professional sports. Being a thug, whether in a gang or a small group or as an individual is something we should be thoroughly rooting out.
Im not sure you could be wrong in more ways than you are if you tried. Sorry. I wont call you names. But I find the position you take to be reprehensible.
