Ever since the story of Richie Incognito bullying teammate Jonathan Martin, fellow Miami Dolphins players have remained silent when it came to discussing the matter with the media. Until today. As Brian Hartline puts it, the Dolphins ordered their players to not comment, but now they have decided to voice their opinions and "defend ourselves." Below, you can follow along with the various remarks made earlier today by Hartline, quarterback Ryan Tannehill and Tyson Clabo.
Ryan Tannehill: "If you asked Jonathan Martin who his best friend is on this team two weeks ago, he'd say Richie Incognito."— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) November 6, 2013
Ryan Tannehill: "Richie Incognito was the best possible teammate I could have asked for."— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) November 6, 2013
Hartline is outraged because he says Martin was passing the voicemail around earlier in the year and laughing about it.— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) November 6, 2013
In reference to the prank that occurred before Martin left team, Tannehill says the team played the same prank on Tannehill multiple times.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) November 6, 2013
Hartline insists that Incognito isn't a racist. Labels the question ridiculous and says he doesn't even understand it.— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) November 6, 2013
Tyson Clabo: "Everybody's trying to make Richie out to be a racist psychopath, and nothing could be farther from the truth."— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) November 6, 2013
Tyson Clabo just obliterated Martin with his comments. I don't think there's any way Martin can return to the Dolphins.— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) November 6, 2013
"I would say Jonathan is like Richie's little brother." - Ryan Tannehill— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) November 6, 2013
These new turn of events may be in response to news that Incognito has been suspended indefinitely by the Dolphins for "conduct detrimental to the team." Where do y'all stand on this issue? Have these new revelations changed your outlook?
