Sunday night, the Miami Dolphins suspended offensive lineman Richie Incognito for conduct detrimental to the team. According to reports, Incognito sent racial slurs in text messages and left threatening voicemails for second-year lineman Jonathan Martin. Martin recently left the team after reported bullying from Incognito and other members of the Dolphins.
Monday, former NFL quarterback Rich Gannon and Mad Dog Sports Radio host Adam Schein reacted to the reports of bullying in the Miami locker room, taking Incognito, the team, head coach Joe Philbin and even quarterback Ryan Tannehill to ask.
Gannon, who called the harassment a “loser’s mentality,” recounted similar incidents he observed while playing for the Oakland Raiders. He took issue with the lack of a response then by members in the Raiders’ locker room, and now by Tannehill and other members of the Dolphins’ staff and locker room.
Schein called the reported actions “disturbing.”
There is no place for bullying … To threaten someone’s family and to use racial slurs, that is disgusting, that is despicable, and I don’t know how Richie Incognito is allowed back in the locker room in Miami.
You can hear Schein and Gannon daily on SiriusXM NFL Radio and Mad Dog Sports Radio, and tune into to Mad Dog Sports Radio Wednesdays at 2 pm ET for Gannon, Schein and legendary head coach John Madden on Madden Football.
