What surprises me about this is that this actually happened. Most times ribbing in the locker room happens and it passes by, but for the first time since I can remember, the ribbing and joking caused someone to lose it.
What’s surprising about Friday’s development in Jonathan Martin’s case is that he said that he’s OK and that the teammates making the jokes aren’t to blame.
“Yeah, I’m good man. It’s insane bro, but just know I don’t blame you guys at all. It’s just the culture around football, and the locker room got to me a little.”
