Found November 06, 2013 on Phin Nation:

Ironically and hysterically, the Miami Dolphins players welcomed the media into the locker room by blaring circus music.  It’s been that kind of week I guess.  Today, during the post-practice press conference, Joe Philbin essentially declined to talk about the Martin/Incognito situation until the NFL investigation is over with. Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com Ryan Tannehill, however, stood up for Incognito and tried to explain that the focus of the team is on the Tampa Bay Bucs.  Here are a few of the tweets recapping Tannehill’s comments: 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 This is a very interesting comment to me.  Taken at face value, it hurts Martin’s case.  But the possibility also exists that Martin was intimidated by Richie and wanted to become friends with him in the hopes that the jokes, etc. would stop.   Considering the source, the seemingly squeaky clean Tannehill, you have to at least think that he’s telling you what he really feels.  Just another twist in this rapidly changing and evolving story. Tannehill has strong words about the relationship between Incognito and Martin, noting Incognito was always first to be at Martin’s side. — Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) November 6, 2013   (continued on page 2, CLICK HERE)

The Problems with Hazing in the NFL
