    Re: Dolphins tackle leaves team over prank



    Check out @adamhbeasley on twitter.

    Allegedly this is stemming from the vets forcing the young guys to pay significant coin for the vets meals and even trips.

    Martin supposedly had to kick out 15k for the offensive lineman to take a trip on which he never intended to or actually went on.

    Another rookie...or rookies...got handed a 30k tab for a team dinner...and the way it was worded, this was or were rookies that made the min...he's retweeted a Dolphins player and apparently restaurant or team employee who saw the bill a couple days ago.

    I know our guys have to pay for food for their position groups on trips before games, but it's places like Popeyes and I can't imagine it costing more than a few hundred bucks as opposed to $15-30k.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Guys run their mouths and talk shit in the locker room. More often than not there are a few guys who get razzed a lot more than anyone else. This goes on in high school, so I guarantee it happens in the pros. Just kind of the atmosphere of a locker room.

    You have to have thick skin in a locker room. Can't show weakness and you can't let your feelings get hurt easily.

    There was this kid on my college team who was a junior when I was a freshman. He really thought picking on me was a blasty blast. Guess he didn't like the way my face looked. He'd throw my socks and shit in the showers while guys were in there showering. He'd take my cleats out on the field before practice so is have to walk out to the field in flip flops and put my cleats on. Just a lot of dumb stuff like that. It pissed me off quite a bit after a few weeks of it, so one practice (he was a receiver and I played safety/linebacker) he went up for a ball and I pulled a Brandon Merriweather on his ass while he was mid air.

    The point of that is the only real way to earn respect in a locker room is to earn it on the field.

    Martin has been a huge disappointment for Miami. His inability to deal with being razzed/picked on only compounds it.

    As long as he is a Miami Dolphin, he will never have their respect now.

    It's way more than that.

    They are making rookies basically pay for their lifestyle...allegedly.

    Who makes a guy pay for his position groups vacation that he doesn't even go on?

    Who sticks rookies with an entire team dinner that rings up to 30k?

    That's way beyond the norm if this is true.

    Dinner bills aren't totally out of the ordinary. Though 30k is crazy.

    They don't have to pay those bills though. They have to know that is a possibility every time they go out.

    Of course they aren't necessarily out of the ordinary.

    But usually it's a small position group and running up a bill anywhere near that amount is beyond ridiculous.

    For a minimum rookie...which basically are almost all rookies 3rd round and below, a bill like that would be equivalent to a guy making $50k a year having to foot a $1500 bill for his fellow employees.

    And you know they feel pressure to pay for it or they wouldn't do it. Whether it's retribution or flat out feeling like you aren't a part of the team if you do those things...it's beyond dumb and that doesn't happen everywhere. Hell, the Ravens get the rookies to pay for a couple buckets of chicken...likely less than $60 bucks.

    Why should a guy feel pressured to pay $15k for a trip he has no intentions on going?

    And it's not just Martin feeling this way. In a way, making people aware of this is a good thing IMHO.

    It's one thing to take some ribbing, to carry pads, to buy a couple buckets of fast food chicken.

    It's another thing when you are taking potential savings for a guy so vets can have as much lobster and shrimp as they want for an hour.

    Shit is about to get real...apparently, Martin saved VMs and texts from Incognito...

    Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 1m
    4. Incognito to Martin, all on same VM in April 2013: "(Expletive) you, you're still a rookie. I'll kill you."

    Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 1m
    3. Incognito VM to Martin: "(I'm going to) slap your (expletive) mouth. (I'm going to) slap your real mother across the face (laughter).

    Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 2m
    2. More Incognito to Martin: "I saw you on Twitter, you been training ten weeks. (I want to) (expletive) in your (expl) mouth....

    Yeah. I heard about it this morning. Strange to see bullying to this level in an NFL locker room. We all know some form of hazing occurs but this crosses the line.

    Him calling someone a piece of shit? Pot meet kettle.

    Re: OT - voice messages from Richie incognito

    Wasn't there a report or story about Incognito in the past few months that said he was "kinder, gentler" and putting all the rage and crap behind him?
    So much for that.. I guess.
