By now, you have all heard about the bullying allegations involving Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin of the Miami Dolphins. As each day passes, more and more disturbing allegations continue to surface in this matter. Was Incognito acting alone? Were his teammates involved as well? Was this just against Martin? Those are all questions that remain to be answered. Unfortunately, the most alarming news may be the fact that not only was the Dolphins’ coaching staff aware of what was going on, but that they were complicit in the matter, even egging on Incognito to “toughen up” Martin.
If that turns out to be the case, and I truly hope it is not true for the sake of Miami head coach Joe Philbin, then the locker room needs to be cleaned out starting from the top.
