Glazer Talks About Getting Incognito Interview, Said There Were No Restrictions
Published November 12, 2013
SILENCE IS GOLDEN: Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman said Incognito avoiding the topic of whether any orders given to him by the Dolphins coaching staff during the interview was the "most telling thing to me of that interview." Freeman: "If it didn’t happen then he would say it didn’t happen. The fact that he didn’t answer it tells me something came from the coaches as been reported. It seems like to me that the core of this case is who knew what, who told what player to do what and that is yet to be answered” (“Rome,” CBSSN, 11/11).
SHARPE WORDS: In Buffalo, Jeff Simon writes when CBS' Shannon Sharpe during the net's "The NFL Today" on Sunday "had his say on the whole nationally inflammatory brouhaha" over the Martin-Incognito scandal, it was a moment that "stunned me with the rawness of its truth and passion." Sharpe’s "usual role" on the show is to "provide the personality that the ex-coach (Bill Cowher) and the star ex-quarterbacks (Dan Marino and Boomer Esiason) lack." Simon: "What I never expected to see was as much genuine outrage on TV as Sharpe expressed at what he knew of the bullying and hazing 'culture of the Dolphins' locker room'" (BUFFALO NEWS, 11/12).
