Amid reports that Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin went AWOL after getting the business from teammates in the cafeteria, and that Martin is now getting some sort of treatment for an emotional condition, Martin has been silent.
Martin broke his silence on Facebook, and a source who knows Martin has helped us confirm that it’s indeed Martin’s page. (We’re much better with the Twitter.)
“Happy Halloween!” Martin said. “Don’t believe everything you read.”
He then added one of our all-time favorite quotes: “Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.” (Unfortunately, he left out the best part: “And they all stink, except your own.”)
Losers of four games in a row, the Dolphins currently stink, and not having Martin will make it harder to beat the Bengals.
Regardless of the truth, the reality is that Martin isn’t playing tonight, due to an unspecified illness. Time will tell whether Martin or the team will have anything more to say on the matter.
