SMH, such a shame to find out this is what’s happening in the NFL.  What kind of example is this for kids?!  No wonder why Jonathan Martin left the team.  No one should have to deal with this kind of behavior.
Late last night the Dolphins suspended Richie Incognito indefinitely and it looks like they made the right decision.  We are now learning EXACTLY what Richie had said to Jonathan … and it’s terrible.  Richie is saying he’s going to clear his name, but this isn’t looking good for him.  Details after the jump…

Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com has an update on the evidence against Richie Incognito as the league investigates the circumstances around Jonathan Martin’s leave of absence from the team:

Among the texts that Jonathan Martin made available to his parents, and then, eventually the Dolphins and the NFL, include those in which Richie Incognito refers to Martin, who is biracial, as a “half-n*****,” according to a source who was privy to the communication.

There are several instances of threats as well, the sources said, and overall disturbing exchanges, including one in which Incognito refers to defecating in Martin’s mouth.

Incognito also made reference to tracking down members of Martin’s family and harming them in the texts as well, according to a source.

ESPN.com has more details surrounding the voicemails left by Richie Incognito on Jonathan Martin’s phone:

Sources familiar with the tapes, say these are terms Incognito used over time, and were not isolated incidents, including the use of the racial epithet multiple times.

Sources also say Martin received a series of texts that include derogatory terms referring to the female anatomy and sexual orientation.
