Jonathan Martin breaks silence, Internet tough guys converge
Jonathan Martin tried to wish everybody good cheer on his Twitter account. And then the mean people came out.
We haven't heard much of anything from Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin since he accused guard Richie Incognito of bullying and hazing and then shuffled off to California to wait out the ensuing fallout.
We know Martin has talked to investigator Ted Wells, but since then, Martin has mostly been silent.
Until he posted the following Twitter update Monday.
Nice message, of course, even if he used too many emoticons. Unfortunately not everybody appreciated Martin's good tidings.

@J_Martin71 Not for you, coward.— Darren Shore (@thedarrenshore) December 23, 2013
So, good job, Internet tough guys. You've taken a nice message from a human being/player and tried to trash it for, really, no reason at all.
