If this is true, this is aw-ful!
As we've been reporting, Jonathan Martin is the Miami Dolphins player who left the team because he was being bullied by fellow player Richie Incognito.
But, as it turns out, things are much more complicated than we thought. In fact, it looks like it's not just a problem with one or two players, but something the whole team is a part of.
New details have continued to come to light, along with this gem. Sports Illustrated’s Jim Trotter went on the Amani & Eytan Show and said:
“I spoke to one player who was on the Dolphins the last couple of years, and we were speaking about Jonathan Martin, and he said that the Dolphins have what they call a ‘sensitivity fine,’ and it’s for players that they deem to be soft on or off the field. And he said that they repeatedly targeted Jonathan Martin for that to the point that one time — whether it was playful or not — they even talked about fining him a game check because he was so soft.”
A ‘sensitivity fine’?! That’s crazy talk!
How could they even regulate that?!
Something tells us there’s going to be a much bigger investigation in the future!
