After news broke that allegedly gay Miami Dolphins player Jonathan Martin left the team due to bullying, one teammate was suspended from the team indefinitely for taunting Martin with racist text messages. Now comes word that Richie Incognito’s bitter father is anonymously salting sports message boards with outrageous claims about Martin and the team owner.
Richie Incognito finds himself at the center of the Dolphins’ and the NFL’s investigation of the bullying complaints of Jonathan Martin, who left the team last week. Incognito has been suspended indefinitely, and the latest report is that Incognito left Martin texts and voicemails “that are both threatening and racially charged in nature.”
Early this morning, a poster with the username “idrd1994” left an impassioned defense of Incognito on the FinHeaven message board. In it, he attacked both Martin and Mike Pouncey as “black brothers that do drugs on a regular basis,” and asked readers to “pray [GM Jeff] Ireland and [coach Joe] Philbin die of AIDS.” He blasts the team from top to bottom, claims Incognito is getting railroaded, and uses the “black people say the N-word in rap music” argument to dismiss claims that Incognito sent racial messages to Martin. He also implies that Martin has pondered suicide, and “does not belong in an NFL locker room.”
The original post was deleted, but thanks to a screen grab it will live on in infamy.
