Found November 08, 2013 on The Other Paper:
Richie Incognito has been suspended indefinitely by the Miami Dolphins, presumably for his alleged role in bullying left tackle Jonathan Martin, who left the team last week and is currently in California seeking counseling. While the NFL investigates the matter, new details of the left guard's antics continue to pile up. The latest accusation against Incognito, according to NationalFootballPost.com's Jason Cole, is he would regularly hold meetings for the offensive line at a South Florida strip club and would "fine" teammates if they didn't show up. “Richie wanted to set up Richie's world as a way for everybody to act,” a team source told Cole. “Richie thinks everybody should act that way. He doesn't get that some guys aren't into that behavior. Some guys don't want to constantly explain to their wife or girlfriend why they have to go to a strip club.”And if players didn't go? Incognito would mock them for not being part of the group, Cole wrote. On Thursday, Cam Cleeland, who was a tight end with the Rams when Incognito was drafted, said this about his former teammate. "I'm not afraid to say that he was an immature, unrealistic scumbag," Cleeland told the Los Angeles Times. "When it came down to it, he had no personality, he was a locker-room cancer, and he just wanted to fight everybody all the time. It was bizarre beyond belief." Although Incognito's Miami teammates came to his defense this week and he is expected to file a grievance against the team for losing his $235,294.12 weekly salary, the new details into his behavior don't help his case. Martin, meanwhile, has hired high-powered attorney David Cornwall, who alleged Thursday night that his client was the victim of verbal abuse in the Dolphins' locker room. On Thursday, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin told the media, "I think we have a strong group of men in the locker room. I believe we had one before this occurred. And I believe we'll have one after." Just bring lots of dollar bills.
