Post Some news and opinion on Jonathan Martin interview

...

That's it. That's the news. The full interview with NBC's Tony Dungy will be aired on NBC Network's PFT at 6:30 Wednesday.

Now my opinion ...

At the risk of sounding unsympathetic, Jon Martin, your weak act is officially old. Go away. Just do what you did best as an offensive lineman on the field and back away. Just do what you did when you left your teammates unexpectedly during the season and simply disappear.

Every single step taken by you in this saga feels manufactured and authored by a lawyer as a step torward a suit. And that makes sense because you definitely have gotten excellent legal advice from your family and the lawyer you added to represent you in this matter. And I, for one, would be surprised if your legal team isn't preparing a suit.

The dramatic throwing down of your lunch tray and departure? No other teammate did that when you were among the players standing up and leaving them alone at a lunch table. So the fact you chose that harmless act to make your departure statement seems contrived now.

Seeking medical help? Please tell us where exactly? ...

Another thing:

Please Tony Dungy, you're a nice man and a Christian. So where is your discernment in all this, my brother? ...

One more thing:

None of this gets Richie Incognito off the hook. He's a meathead. He displays all the signs of a bully -- loud, obnoxious at times, demanding attention. But because he's something of a bully, he can be stopped dead in his tracks.

Early in training camp in 2013 he started calling another reporter a "nerd." One day as I'm standing in the middle of the locker room, he walks by and starts joking about me looking like I was lifting weights and then started speaking gibberish as if in mocking Spanish.

I asked Incognito politely, but firmly and seriously to stop. "Just stop."

He did. Never again.

Yep seems like when story came out though Armando was singing a different tune. Too bad he did not say something about that.

I am sorry, but I just don't buy it all and the main thing I am just amazed at is that he did not even go to the Head Coach privately. However, I do understand if he felt things were getting out of hand, but from the outside looking in and maybe it is easy for me to say, but had he stood up more and went to his superiors, I believe there were ways to get this stuff to simmer down, let along try to be more assertive himself.

My guess along with everyone else is that the Colts where Andrew Luck is or 49ers where Harbaugh is could be logical choices where he could get signed.

I totally agree here. In my opinion both Incognito and Martin need to go on their merry way.

He's a nice guy and someone that I respect, but he has a bias.

This was a fluff interview. Most likely they had to get the questions to be ask approved or were given the question they could ask by Martin's law team, before doing this interview.

That is why I lost a little bit of respect for Dungy.

He is an employee of a network who wanted this interview.

NFL special investigator Ted Wells is expected to release his report on the Jonathan Martin-Richie Incognito saga this Thursday.
It's believed Dolphins OL coach Jim Turner will be in trouble based on Wells' findings. The Fins retained Joe Philbin, making it seem unlikely Wells' report will be damning for Miami's head coach. Incognito is a free agent. Martin is still under contract with the Dolphins, but isn't expected back.

Dungy didn't get the otherside of the story.
