I 100% think this was his plan all along... nothing else makes sense...
1 day he is joking back and forth with richie the next .. all hell breaks loose..
This is about having 2 parents that know the law and a kid that wants a quick pay day..
The doors this is going to open.... OMG!http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1831 ... -teammates
I know this is probably going to come across as insensitive.... If so, I apologize.
But right now, Martin is coming across as a spoiled brat who whined to his mommy and daddy, and now they are telling him what to do. He appears to be someone who has no skin, and can't stand up for himself. Did they physically abuse him in the locker room? Not that I am aware of...
They told him to do (stupid) things, and like a pansy, he just did them and didn't step up and say "no".
He received voicemails and texts with words that I guarantee are said in other locker rooms on a regular basis. You can question this statement, but I worked with an NFL team 5 years ago, and I first hand heard those words being thrown around. Maybe it is unfortunate, but you have to expect it to some extent. I wonder if Martin EVER said these things back. If so, how innocent is he in this whole process. Yes, I understand that they are insensitive and hurtful words, but they are thrown around.
He knows he will NEVER play in the NFL again because he isn't made for it. He tried it and he doesn't like it. He is not capable enough as a player, and I don't think the NFL is an appropriate work setting based on his personality. I sure as hell would not want him on my team if i was a fan of someone else. Handle it in house. If its not for you, then talk to the coach and say that you don't want to be a part of the team because of x, y, and z. Running away from the facility and making national headlines is not the best way to handle yourself. You don't have to attempt to bring down a whole organization down in the process, and then later on act like, "oh hey... I am ready to play football now guys". You won't be treated like everyone else in the locker room... and then he will feel insulted or something and have a problem with that too.
I know that this attitude may get me ripped to shreds by some people here, but I am just personally annoyed by HOW things went down. Martin has not made a statement in like 2 weeks and our organization has been thrown to the wolves based on a lot of media reports. Be a man, dude... But hey, I guess that is too much to expect from him.
I really hope he gets whatever help he needs. But I wouldn't lose an ounce of sleep if he never steps on the football field again. Time to put that degree to use kid.
