Dolphins Richie Incognito Interview With Jay Glazer of Fox Sports
There has been so much said and so much opinion given in the Miami Dolphins ‘bullying’ case, but we finally heard from one of the two primary parties involved on Sunday.
Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer sat down with offensive guard Richie Incognito for his first interview since the public got an uncomfortable glimpse of what an NFL locker room can be like.
Rookie lineman Jonathan Martin felt he had to leave the team because of the treatment he was receiving from teammates, but especially Incognito. When details surfaced last week, many were appalled at the treatment of first year players in the league, and the language Incognito used when talking to someone he calls his friend – including a voice message in which the veteran called the younger Martin a ‘half-n*****.’
”My actions were coming from a place of love. No matter how bad and vulgar it sounds, that’s how we communicate, that’s how our friendship was,” Incognito said.
He made a claim of his own, that Martin had sent a text of his own that said he would kill Incognito’s family. But, Incognito said he he didn’t believe it to be a real threat, rather it was an example of how the two would communicate with each other.
