New York Giants defensive back Antrel Rolle has never met a microphone he didn’t like, often times finding himself at the center of controversy. That likely won’t change after his recent comments regarding the Miami Dolphins bullying situation where Rolle suggested that Jonathan Martin was as much to blame for the incident as Richie Incognito.

Per Ralph Vacchiano:

Well first of all, I know something like that would never, ever happen to myself, because I wouldn’t allow it to happen. I think, you know, that’s something that people really need to understand and look at. Yeah, was Richie Incognito wrong? Absolutely. But I think the other guy is just more to blame as Richie because he allowed it to happen. And, you know, at this level, you’re a man. You know? You’re not a little boy. You’re not a freshman in college. You know, you’re a man. So I think everything has its limits.

That’s only a portion of Rolle’s quote as you can find the rest by clicking here, but it seems as if Rolle doesn’t understand that not everybody solves everything with a first to the face.

Nobody truly knows what went on between Martin and Incognito, but regardless, what we have seen hasn’t been pleasant. How Martin handled that situation was up to Martin himself, but blaming him because he didn’t react in a way that Rolle would have seems a bit silly.
