    Incognito- what should the punishment be?

    The Incognito story has gone from a story about Bullying to the plot from "A Few Good Men". What do you think should happen to Incognito and/or possibly the staff and ownership?

    I was wondering when someone would post something about this. I totally get the attitude a lot of players have said that Martin should have gone to Incognito or the coaching staff about this prior to going public with it. I tend to side with that as well. A 300lb man should be able to stand up for himself and tell another 300lb man to shut his mouth. I don't understand why Martin felt as if he couldn't tell the dude to back off. As it is, he didn't and now the Dolphin's coaching staff look like a bunch of Jack Nicholsons and Kiefer Sutherlands lol. I do think they should be punished for it. I'm a big fan of the league disallowing them a playoff appearance for 3 years and taking their 1st round draft pick for 3 years. That would send a message.

    I think it should be handled by the Dolphins and NFL league office and that is the end of it. You will never make me believe that this does not happen in other locker rooms. I played football in high school and my first year of college, one has to be mentally and physical tough to play that game.

    He should be punished by the league and the Dolphins should get rid of him. Honestly, if he's still playing like he did with the Rams it'd be addition by subtraction anyway. Seemed like a personal foul and 15 yards after every play from him.

    He made a death threat first of all. When i hear of 19 year olds rotting in jail with no trial for months for a sarcastic comment on a video game, then this scumbag goes free? Well, like all bullies he's too much a coward to act on his threat. This is really pathetic for a supposed adult, but that's the NFL for you. Haven for dog killers, rapists, cheaters (steroids), racists, homophobes etc. It will take a miracle to get me to ever tune in on sundays at this rate.

    Re: Incognito- what should the punishment be?

    steve smith of the panthers physically assaulted two team members in separate incidents - one of then with severe damage to the victim
    yet he is viewed as one of the stars of the team

    incognito remains supported by his team mates, in a way that martin is not
    and if it is confirmed that the coaching staff instructed incognito to 'toughen up' martin, then he will receive a 'get out of jail free' card and go on to help another team in need of a superior offensive tackle
    hell, i hope my team picks him up ... just like they should have done when vick was available

    martin is soft. the NFL is the one workplace where being an ivy leaguer does not work to your advantage. before college he was in an elite private high school. he needs to man up if he expects to continue his own career. and given his recent play, even that may be inadequate to keep him in the NFL

    It is easier to be a violent knuckledragger (Incognito) in a violent sport than it is to be a civilized person (Martin) in a violent sport. Incognito (should a person with such a name really be in the newspaper?) was put in a position of authority and abused that authority.

    appears he was directed to do what he did:
    Miami Dolphins coaches asked player Richie Incognito, who was the offensive line's undisputed leader, to toughen up teammate Jonathan Martin after he missed a voluntary workout last spring, multiple sources told the Sun Sentinel.
    Dolphins coaches asked Incognito to toughen up Martin, sources say - Sun Sentinel

    don't ask that of him and then banish him from the team/league. he was following orders as the obedient offensive [name well chosen] captain

    I too saw the story and I'm sure the Dolphins staff would say that while they asked him to do something, they didn't tell Incognito what or how to do it. I chose the option that also punishes the coach and the team.
