In response to Sobchack's comment:
To those of you who defending this jerk's "hazing" and called Martin a "baby."
Multiple sources confirmed to ESPN that the following is a transcript of a voice message Incognito left for Martin in April 2013, a year after Martin was drafted:
"Hey, wassup, you half n----- piece of s---. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. [I want to] s--- in your f---ing mouth. [I'm going to] slap your f---ing mouth. [I'm going to] slap your real mother across the face [laughter]. F--- you, you're still a rookie. I'll kill you."
Go back to the: "Is it just me..." thread.
There is NO defending this stuff. These are grown adults, getting paid millions to play a for-profit game. You have it backwards: it's not Martin who needs to have a mental evaluation; it's Incognito.
Yeah, I played varsity sports all the way through college. I was in a frat. I know what "hazing" is and I know when it becomes outright inexcusable.
No kidding. Sending death threats and sticking rookies with a $30,000 bills for veteran vacations is far beyond hazing. A rookie drafted in the 5th or lower is likely making ~$200,00 take home, after everything is said and done. After retirement planning and mortgage payments, you know general life investments, they are not rich enough to drop $5000 a week on veterans who are just acting privileged.
The idea of using rookies like ATMs is even worse: I'd be interested in the extent of this, because it's crooked and thuggish and so far beyond the pale of having the rookies pick up a tab.
