Richie Incognito, a guard, was suspended by the team Nov. 3 for misconduct related to the treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who abruptly left the Dolphins late last month to receive help for emotional issues.
The internal police report states that two players, who have not been identified, forcibly held down a third player and rubbed against him in a sexual manner. All were fully clothed.
Some say Martin, a Stanford graduate who went about his business quietly, handled the situation well. But pro football is a macho world, and some players believe Martin should have responded more firmly.
The reason that the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin incident will not go away any time soon is that everyone can relate to it.
It’s not that the Giants really need a reminder about harassment in the workplace, but Tom Coughlin said he’s not taking any chances.
Antrel Rolle clarified that he’s against bullying, and that Martin is not as much to blame as Incognito. He did maintain, however, that Martin “does take some accountability.”
We should be disgusted by anyone who condones Incognito, excuses Incognito or ignores Incognito. We should be disgusted by anyone who blames Martin, teases Martin or trivializes Martin.
“Last year, with what I went through, I’m still sticking to my story,” Amukamara said. “That wasn’t bullying at all. That was just fun in the locker room.”
The NFL Players Association said Tuesday that it will insist on a fair investigation for all involved in the Miami Dolphins harassment case.
The Miami Dolphins suspended guard Richie Incognito late Sunday for misconduct related to the treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who abruptly left the team a week ago to receive help for emotional issues.
The college announced last week that the team’s fall games were canceled after an investigation determined upperclassmen had hazed freshmen players.
Officials said the incident happened at Wantagh Park, where the acting pool supervisor, 50, and two others duct taped a seasonal worker to a pole.
Pvt. Danny Chen, 19, shot himself in Afghanistan in 2011 after being racially harassed by other soldiers.
The hazing scandal at the Bronx High School of Science was widening Wednesday night, as e-mails indicate that the staff may have known about sexual assaults in the locker room as far back as 2010.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg called the recent arrests of three Bronx High School of Science students for hazing “inappropriate” and “despicable,” if true.
