"I think Jonathan Martin is a weak person," said one personnel man, speaking on the condition of anonymity. "If Incognito did offend him racially, that's something you have to handle as a man!...
Said another: "Guys are going to be guys, if you know what I mean. I'm sure there are some instances of 'taking things too far,' but that happens everywhere. You handle it in house -- fight, handle it on the field, joke about it, etc -- and keep it moving."...
Said one personnel man: "Incognito is an A-Hole, however I'm pretty sure you would want him beside you if you are in a bar fight. Tough as nails."
Which is ridiculous.
"Handle it as a man," while hiding behind the anonymity, and all but promoting what Incognito has done as something that's okay to do.
A fight with a guy like Incognito will only make matters worse. Martin is smart for doing this. Part of being a man is to know when socking a guy won't solve a problem.
