Mr. Scot

Incognito rants on Twitter...

Recommended Posts

...until his lawyer tells him to shut his trap, then posts his lawyer's phone number on the internet.


Incognito tells Martin "The truth will bury you"


Incognito continues his Twitter tirade


Incognito finally zips it


The hump day Twitter tirade from Dolphins guard Richie Incognito is intriguing, revealing, and ultimately troubling.

“It’s who he is,” one league source opined to PFT regarding the question of why Incognito would attack Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin and his agent, Kenny Zuckerman, on Twitter less than a month before Incognito becomes a free agent — and possibly only days before Ted Wells’ report is released.


Still, at a time when Incognito is complaining about Zuckerman revealing private information to the media, Incognito has made a private, sensitive disclosure of his own on Twitter.  “FACT: Jonathan Martin told me he thought about taking his own life in MAY 2013 b/c he wasn’t playing well,” Incognito said.  “Told me he felt worthless.”

Accurate or not, what purpose does it serve to make that disclosure public now, especially as the Ted Well report inches closer to publication?

Meanwhile, Incognito has offered an arguably sarcastic apology for the statements contained in the oft-raunchy text messages with Martin that Incognito’s camp apparently leaked last week.

“I apologize to all of the women out there that I offended with my text messages to my close personal friend,” Incognito said.

Incognito hasn’t publicly apologized for — or even mentioned — his golf-course behavior toward a female volunteer that reportedly resulted in a cash payment to settle her legal claims.


After a Wednesday afternoon Twitter tirade against Jonathan Martin and agent Kenny Zuckerman that culminated in Incognito claiming that Martin told Incognito in May 2013 that Martin was contemplating suicide because of his poor play, Incognito pulled the plug, saying, “I have no further comment at this time. Please contact my attorney Mark Schamel.”

Incognito then provided Schamel’s phone number.

The decision to publicly post Schamel’s number, which likely will be flooded with calls (we didn’t post it here for that very reason), suggests that Schamel told Richie to knock it off, Richie wasn’t happy with it, and so Richie opted to comply in aggressive passive-aggressive fashion.

As one league source told PFT on Wednesday afternoon, “[Richie] just wants to have his way.  This is his way of stomping and holding his breath.”


Good luck convincing teams that you're a stable personality, pal.

Yeah...I couldn't care less about either of them.


I "care" in the sense that this may be the weirdest story I've seen come out of the NFL in a long time.

Aren't the official findings from the investigation supposed to be released soon? Can't happen quick enough.

Guy really can rant all he wants. Hope that he can never get a job. Due to that. As really bullies less of them, the world is better off!

I understand why. If you read his final texts to Martin that were released he pleaded with him to come forward because the media were killing him an he may lose his job. Martin, on advice of counsel I'm sure, has kept quiet while Richie fries.

All I'm saying is I can understand where he's coming from if this guy you thought was a friend is keeping quiet while you are getting cast in a VERY unfavorable light. Especially in today's guilty until proven innocent society.

Granted I don't know the whole story, but based off the info I've seen I can understand, not condone, but understand the rage and where his frustration is coming from.
