The Miami Dolphins locker room situation between Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin has taken the spotlight this week in the NFL. It seems like there is some division on the subject though. While everyone agrees that what Incognito did was despicable and wrong, some are criticizing Martin as well.
Namely, for coming forward and shedding light on what was going on. The main criticism is that he should’ve handled the situation himself. That issues like this are handled within the locker room. Of course we saw how that worked out for Cal running back Fabiano Hale who was sent to the hospital because of “locker room justice.”
New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle criticized Martin, and now former player and game announcer Tony Siragusa is weighing in.
“They talk about teams being a family,” Siragusa said on The Dan Patrick Show. “When you’re in the locker room, that’s like your home. . . . Things are handled in there and said in there that shouldn’t be brought out to the media. Plainly because the media and really the real world can handle a lot of those things and things that happen in that locker room. . . . I think [Martin] should have confronted Incognito. I think he should have went up to him and said ‘What’s your problem?’ or said something to him or kept it in house.”
