Bookies: Philbin talks to the media over Martin situation

Philbin was blamed for the environment in the locker room, forcing Martin to leave the team last week after an incident in the lunchroom. Price per head and UK bookmaker services saw that on Monday, a usually passive Philbin was somewhat emotional while talking to the media – something that surprised many bookies.
“I want you to know as head coach of the Miami Dolphins, I am in charge of the workplace atmosphere,” Philbin said.
“Since April 10, 2012, when players first came here. … Every decision I’ve made, everything we’ve done at this facility was done with one thing in mind: that is to help our players and our organization to reach their full potential. Any type of conduct and behavior that detracts from that objective will not be tolerated.”
Pay per head sportsbooks and UK bookmaker services found out that several media reports highlighted Incognito’s constant bullying and harassment of Martin over the past year and a half. It was reported that one voice mail from Incognito had physical threats and a racial slur. Bookies found out that on Sunday, Miami suspended Incognito indefinitely once Martin’s representatives showed their concerns.
Various sources reported that what follows is a transcript of a voice message left by Incognito for Martin in April 2013, a year after the player was drafted, and pay per head sportsbooks could not believe what they read:
“Hey, wassup, you half n—– piece of s—. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. [I want to] s— in your f—ing mouth. [I’m going to] slap your f—ing mouth. [I’m going to] slap your real mother across the face [laughter]. F— you, you’re still a rookie. I’ll kill you.”
Bookies and pay per head sportsbooks saw that Philbin did not take Martin’s situation very lightly with over 75 media members in attendance, and he compared it to his own children.

“You know, two of my children go to school right behind here at the university school,” Philbin said. “As a parent, when they walk in those doors, I have certain expectations with administration, with the teachers and the staff that they will create a safe atmosphere where my children can learn and develop as people. This is no different. I take this responsibility very serious.”
