Suspended Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito held offensive line meetings as at a South Florida strip club and would fine them if they didn’t attend, according to the National Football Post. “Richie wanted to set up Richie’s world as a way for everybody to act,” a team source told the National Football Post. “Richie thinks everybody should act that way. He doesn’t get that some guys aren’t into that behav-ior. Some guys don’t want to constantly explain to their wife or girlfriend why they have to go to a strip club.” If the players didn’t go, Incognito would mock them for not being apart of the group. Incognito was suspended by the Dolphins on Sunday for conduct detrimental to the team amid accusations he harassed teammate Jonathan Martin, who left the team last week. Incognito is expected to file a grievance against the team for losing $235,294.12 weekly salary. Martin, meanwhile, has hired attorney David Cornwall, who released this statement: Jonathan Martin’s toughness is not at issue. Jonathan has started every game with the Miami Dolphins since he was drafted in 2012. At Stanford, he was the anchor for Jim Harbaugh’s “smash mouth” brand of football and he protected Andrew Luck’s blind side. The issue is Jonathan’s treatment by his teammates. Jonathan endured harassment that went far beyond the traditional locker room hazing. For the entire season-and-a-half that he was with the Dolphins, he attempted to befriend the same teammates who subjected him to the abuse with the hope that doing so would end the harassment. This is a textbook reaction of victims of bullying. Despite these efforts, the taunting continued. Beyond the well-publicized voice mail with its racial epithet, Jonathan endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and daily vulgar comments such as the quote at the bottom. These facts are not in dispute. Eventually, Jonathan made a difficult choice. Despite his love for football, Jonathan left the Dolphins. Jonathan looks forward to getting back to playing football. In the meantime, he will cooperate fully with the NFL investigation. Quote from teammate: “We are going to run train on your sister. . . . She loves me. I am going to f–k her without a condom and c– in her c—.” The post Report: Richie Incognito held Oline meetings at strip club appeared first on Sports Glory.
