Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill said an accurate description of the offensive linemen at the center of a bullying scandal would be that they were like best friends and brothers. "If you asked Jonathan Martin a week before who his best friend is he would have said Richie Incognito," Tannehill said Wednesday, responding to questions about the alleged bullying that led Martin to abruptly leave the team last week and the Dolphins to suspend Incognito indefinitely on Sunday. "I would say Jonathan is like Richie's little brother," Tannehill said. "I think that's an accurate description. He gave him a hard time, he messed with him, but he was the first guy to have his back." Incognito is accused of using a racial slur against Martin and threatening violence against him and his mother in a voicemail Martin turned over to the NFL, which is investigating the matter.

However, there is a line, even with brothers, that if you cross it, it is a violation. Talking about a guy's mother, stalking his family and insults in the public forum to the point where the guy files a formal complaint is a different matter. Since when does "having his back" give somebody the right to conduct themselves like this?
