He should lose his job and be criminally charged
Incognito, the coach, and ownership should be punished by the league
Nothing should happen, this is the NFL
IF Martin had been tough, we would have never heard about this
Incognito fined, suspended, and the NFL investigated
I hate sports and could care less

I am not and have not said any of it is excusable or wasnt over the top, only that it is fairly commonplace. Anyone out there doesnt think so...you simply havent a clue. Furthermore...it isnt going to change with a few rule changes. Look at the process of making it to the pros. A comp league standout will often get recruited to play for certain high schools. Quality high school players get recruited to play at college and some of the top tier players get special treatment. A job you dont have to show up at, classes...meh...dont worry about classes. Here...sign this lease. Boy, it sure is lucky you managed to save all that money raking leaves when you were a kid. Oh...and lets not forget the coaches along the way.
Richie Incognito is simply not all that different from a large number of professional athletes. This is all just faux outrage. Why...I NEVER! Can you just IMAGINE? Harumph haRUMPH HARUMPH!!!
If this was Incognito's first incident, I'd say fine him, punish the Coach and let it go. But this guy? All the time he's in trouble - been released from teams over his temper and everything else. Cut him loose. Playing for the NFL is not a right - it's a privilege, and one that he's abused.
