Incognito & Martin at Spring Workouts

Incognito & Martin at spring workouts

While other Dolphins players had nice things to say about Incognito, rumors persist that Incognito’s indefinite suspension will lead to a dismissal.

[Head Coach Joe] Philbin didn’t need a review to part ways with Incognito, however. The batch of messages provided to the team was enough to make up his mind.

“He’s done,” a ranking club source said Monday. “There are procedures in place, and everyone wants to be fair. The NFL is involved. But from a club perspective, he’ll never play another game here.”

Incognito’s troubled history includes dismissals from two different college teams for fighting and partying, verbal altercations with NFL coaches, and winning the title Dirtiest Player in the NFL in a 2009 Sporting News reader survey — which he called a “badge of honor.” (In a laughable irony, he appears in the team’s video urging fans to behave in a civilized manner.) And apparently, Incognito has a reputation with members of the press and other members of the Dolphins organization as being a bully.

Meanwhile, over at CBS, Jason LaCanfora paints an ugly picture of Incognito. He says…Incognito likes to intentionally walk into people, make “others feel uncomfortable and make threatening remarks” to Martin.

Philbin has promised to cooperate with the Dolphins organization as well as with the NFL “[e]ven if it costs him his job, which is a possibility.” Time will tell how this story will play out, but in the meantime, one can’t help but hope that the issues between Martin and Incognito are not merely the tip of an iceberg.

So they don't have a sensitivity counselor like the Niners? Well, maybe the Raiders will want him?

The rookie payment of team fine dining, etc., would that be taxable income to the diners?

Incognito never grew out of his junior high bully phase. Calling another grown man on the phone to verbally harass him? Sorry Richie, you are no longer allowed to sit at the grownups table.

Incognito is a POS and went over board for sure but Jonathan Martin is a grown man. A gigantic strong man. Yet he let some guy punk him out of his money and his dignity. This could have been handled by Martin stepping up and stopping this by bringing the issue to his teammates or just giving Incognito a four piece combo to his face.

It's a shame Incognito's teammates didn't rectify the problem and let it get to the League because hazing newcomers is close to universal and has a real purpose. Usually it is a good-natured way of letting newcomers know they have a lot to learn, need to ask questions and should follow the lead of the veterans. Incognito's acts didn't fit this.

$15,000 for a trip he didn't even take part in? That's not hazing, that's theft. And the amount should make it a felony.

I would liken it to extortion under implied threat of retaliation.

It's no wonder the 80% of professional football players are bankrupt within 2 years of leaving the league. They find out in the real world that physical intimidation don't mean squat.

Actually it's because they live way beyond their means.

Greetings:

Now wait just a gosh-darned minute. I thought that the WWE was the soap opera for football fans.
