Rolle Apologizes For Comments About Martin
Giants defensive back Antrel Rolle is a leader within his locker room (not to mention, the second highest paid player on the team next to Eli). He enjoys talking to the media.
The only problem with Rolle is that he doesn’t know when to be quiet. Ever. In every situation.
In the same quotes, Rolle will have you pumping your first at the beginning and face palming at the end.
Exhibit A) On Wednesday, Antrel Rolle went on WFAN in New York and in response to the Jonathan Martin – Richie Incognito on-goings in Miami, said the following:
“Was Richie Incognito wrong? Absolutely. But I think [Martin] was just more to blame as Richie because he allowed it to happen. You’re a grown ass man. You need to stand up for yourself.”

As that quote simmered around the country for a few hours on Wednesday, by late afternoon Rolle was feeling heat. This prompted a statement from Rolle (this time on Twitter) that left us saying, “Yes!” and then, “Ok, you can stop now.”
I agree about choosing my word more carefully so I apologize on that behalf. No way he is equally wrong but he does take some accountability

This has nothing to do with being in MIA or NY this is about protecting this union. There is no room for bullying. This game is hard enough! — Antrel Rolle (@antrelrolle26) November 5, 2013
I am very sympathetic for Martin and if he was my teammate that would have never took place. That I can assure. A team is a team of brothers — Antrel Rolle (@antrelrolle26) November 5, 2013
Ok, you can stop now. You can’t assure anything. You have no idea what happened. You weren’t there.
Never said bullying is acceptable under any means. It’s dead ass wrong. But in this world in general people will do what u allow them to do

Ok, you can stop now.
“People will do what you allow them to do” just washed out your entire statement from the beginning saying that you take back that Martin didn’t let it happen.
You just put your foot in your Antrel mouth. Again.
