That move to RT must have left him traumatized.

"ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Miami Dolphins right tackle Jonathan Martin has “gone AWOL from the team the last couple days.”

Glazer said Martin had an incident in the team cafeteria this week in which teammates jokingly said they wouldn’t sit with him, and that Martin’s reaction to the joke was that he “flipped out, smashed a food tray on the ground, took off, and they haven’t seen him since.”

Sounds like he was the teams whipping boy and got hazed enough that he completely flipped out Monday and just left.

His nickname on the team is the "Big Weirdo"

Is that true? Even if that is true there is something wrong with him if he flips out over that. He is a highly paid professional athlete. It reminds me of when the Oakland Raiders center Barret Robbins went AWOL the day before the Super Bowl.

I feel his pain guys, it's got to be hard earning hundreds of thousands of dollars playing a game for appx 6-9 months of work. Poor guy....I wonder what he would do if he had to make a living like us?

Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin is doubtful for Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals because the team says he’s dealing with an “illness.”

But according to FOX Sports 1, Martin “kind of flipped out” and smashed a food tray on the floor of the team lunch room Monday when a practical joke perpetrated by teammates didn’t sit well with him.

Teammates apparently walked away from an ill Martin when he sat down near them in the lunch room. And not appreciating the joke, Martin left the team and hasn’t returned. The Herald has confirmed from two sources the story is accurate.

...

The “treatment” Martin is seeking is apparently emotional treatment/counseling.

One teammate texted Wednesday that Martin has seemed “more aloof” in recent days prior to the incident Monday.

It was clear to me when we got him, the man lacked the mental makeup for a guy playing on a field with modern day gladiators.

Hope he gets help (as there is a deeper issue there), but man ..... we don't need stories like this right now. Yeeesh. I cringed when I heard about it on the LeBetard show before I left for the gym.

Reports are saying that someone in the cafeteria yelled "GO GO!", and Martin just took off and never came back.

Yes it's true.

He was apparently hazed a ton last season as a rookie.

He must have some deep rooted problems. I hope he doesn't take things to the next level. Money isn't the answer for emotional well-being. From the outside looking in you'd think it would, but then again, ask Elvis.

I'll be praying for him.

What does it say about the lack of leadership on this team that there are still pranks going on when the regular season has started and we're on a 4 game losing streak?

Mark my words, this team is in a downward spiral they will not be able to get out of.

No, I've known for quite a while that you don't think before you post.

Nothing new to learn there.

Shake your head all you want. You believe it's "deep rooted" and he needs help. I believe he's a big sissy that's been babied all his life and he can't take getting his chops busted (like you). Different opinions, there are no facts yet. the only fact we have is that he bailed out on his team.

I'm sorry Martin, don't go all mental now. You keep bringing this up, it's like getting bitched slapped and still talking about it. You're an internet tough guy who knows I can't go off on the boards. Stop being such a baby either PM me, call, text whatever you have to do, just get over it already.

Anyway back on topic as I'm sure the board doesn't really care about our drama. So Martin is now a mental case like every child who is a brat has adhd or every quitter on the team was being ran too much and social anx. disorder (but dressed as a bride on a national magazine)...I get it.

Yes, because it is an example of how unhinged you get. I posted something that wasn't even directed at you and you actually texted me with insults.

I guess you have nothing better to do with your life.

You can't go off on the boards? You seem to do it anyway.

As for being an internet tough guy, you've one upped me. You're an internet and text message from 4 hours away tough guy.

Or maybe he got fed up with being in a work environment where he has been harassed for almost two years now because he doesn't fit in?

I'd focus more on what type of lockerroom leadership exists on this team when we're on a four game losing streak and guys want to play pranks.

Obviously, they aren't taking the situation too seriously.

Maybe we should focus on the guys getting paid millions of dollars to win games who are busy playing high school pranks?

The way he and the rest of the O-line has been playing.. I thought they left about 5 weeks ago...

It's one thing when the spoiled player thing is coming from someone that plays well..


This kid.. cut the strings..... no loss here

a whole team does not just decide to send a message for no reason....

joking or not

Good point.

I don't think this is a spoiled player thing. I think it is a case of a guy who doesn't fit in with the typicaly football lockerroom environment. Jonathan Martin is probably more brainiac than brawler. Maybe football isn't the sport for him.

Quote:

At this point yeah, he is in his second year and after a decent start is settling right back into what he was last year, a bottom of the league tackle.

Quote:

Yeah well, there is such a thing as mob mentality. And sorry but when you have an increasingly dysfunctional situation as you're starting to see with this team and guys decide to pull pranks, it goes to show how little they actually care about how bad this season is getting.

This team as a whole is not mentally tough. But hey, they have time to play pranks on each other and continue harassing a player they've been picking on since last year!

Good to know they have their priorities straight.

Heh, the "you can have the last response because I'm the bigger man" routine.

It's ok, you'll just find another thread to randomly attack me in when I post something and you mistakenly think it's directed at you.

Yeah, good points. there are examples of people with money doing drugs and dying all the time. We just found out about Martin and both "sides" jump to conclusions with what we know. If he "truly" has a mental condition then, sorry, just like the team would apologize. If he's being a baby, then so be it.


I'll be praying for him.

That's kind of you Dave, either way, he needs it.

I hope there is more to this story than just being pranked. I mean you dont see MLB guys going awol every time they get the hot foot prank. Also we were so quick to say the Patriots should have known about Hernandez' past when they drafted him. Any reason why the Dolphins were not aware of this guys tendencies.

Actually it creates them, but that aside...you have to understand how blessed you are and get through the bad days. This guy threw a temper tantrum on par with a 3 year old.

From what I'm reading about this situation. It appears Miami has some arseholes on the team.

Not cool to treat a teammates this way. Some people can take it, but some cannot. When you find someone who cannot, then be cool & let it be.

I see this at my job.
