The recent incident involving Richie Incognito and Jonathon Martin of the Miami Dolphins not only has the sports world abuzz but the rest of the world as well.
The story probably would not be all that significant if it did not involve the use of a racial slur used by Incognito.
Incognito used the “n” word which only added unneeded fuel to a fire set ablaze by what appears to be sanctioned intimidation and bullying by the Miami Dolphins organization’s coaching staff.
Although many details are still missing bone thing is for certain, this incident will serve as a warning to other sports organizations in other sports to watch and carefully control their environment surrounding their particular sport.
In an apparent attempt to “motivate” Martin Incognito used some harsh language which ultimately led to him using the racially charged “n” word that has caused a bad situation to get worse very quickly.
In a recent interview with Fox Sports Incognito was quoted as saying the language he used that has been plastered across the media was normal for conversations between he and Martin.
In that interview he went on to say martin just a week before this incident made the news, sent him (Incognito) a text message stating that he (Martin) would murder Incognito’s family.
If what Incognito says is true it points to an even more disturbing aspect of this story and maybe our society as a whole.
If this is how the younger generation speaks to and addresses each other we have a serious problem on our hands that needs our devoted attention.
We all know sports is a microcosm of the world in general and that the sports world to a great degree mirrors the world scene.
If what Richie Incognito said in his Fox Sports interview is true we need to not only take a look at the environment of professional football, we need to take a good, long, hard look at the country and world in which we live.
