Comments Off on Brett Favre on Incognito-Martin: That’s Just An NFL Locker Room

Brett Favre would say such a thing, I mean who’s going to bully him.

Favre said the when he first heard of the bullying scandal in Miami, he couldn’t comprehend how such a thing could happen.

Favre said in an interview on Today Show that he ‘didn’t understand how the word “bully” could be used to describe Richie Incognito’s relationship with teammate Jonathan Martin.”

“My initial reaction was, You’ve got to be kidding me. What? Pro football bullying? We’re playing the toughest sport, most violent, not to mention you’re men, some older than others, so it’s not like a little 12-year-old on the playground,” Favre said. “I’m not defending or condoning, all I’m saying is my initial reaction was, ‘A grown man who’s 320 pounds is getting bullied?’”

Favre said “he was surprised to see it become an issue because the culture of an NFL locker room is one where people expect to see teammates making crude jokes at other teammates’ expense.”

“It is part of the locker room,” Favre said, “There’s a lot of guys getting picked on, some handle it well some don’t handle it well. I’m not saying it’s right. And from a locker room sense, from a team sense, I’m not saying it’s wrong. It’s just the way it is.”
