    I find it ridiculous that Incognito thinks people are dragging his name through the mud. He's done that all on his own with his on field and now alleged off field conduct.

    I presume it's pretty bad, given the amounts of pranking, hazing and wisecracking that are generally welcomed or allowed.

    There has to be more to this story than some simple rookie hazing. Everyone knows that Incognito is nuts. He had to have done something to make Martin and the rest be scared to say no to him.

    Funny how Jason Whitlock seems to find things "racially charged" almost everywhere in the NFL . . .

    except where it actually might be.

    I obviously don't have all the details to this situation but it certainly was a red flag that Incognito tweeted a borderline threat to Adam Schefter with a hashtag of "bring it." That's not exactly how you defend bullying allegations.

    It always cracks me up to hear of how much people from other areas (like where I live in Pittsburgh) "hate" Tom Brady, or think that he's such an "evil" player etc. They somehow act like he is the anti-christ or something, it's so bizarre to me...

    I recently read a comment where someone had said, "Manning vs Brady is the ultimate challenge of 'good' vs 'evil.' " That's just an example of how ridiculous people are. Even worse, a high number of people actually agreed with the idiot.

    They fail to realize that there are any number of actual douchebags around the NFL that include Incognito, Suh, Cromartie, Vick, Roethlisberger, etc...why any idiot would be dumb enough to include someone like Brady on that list is seriously and honestly beyond me.

    If that is accurate, Incognito must have completely missed the Riley Cooper controversy this summer.

    Everyone loves the underdog
    Everyone loves a winner
    Everyone loves a (short-lived) dynasty

    BUT.........

    After the first couple of defenses, everyone hates a dynasty and wants to see it fall. They hate the greatness in that dynasty and want to see it crumble. They hate the pride of that dynasty and want to see it humbled.

    THEN.......

    When the dynasty crumbles and the team hits the skids, the cycle starts all over again.


    Everyone loved the Patriots for the first few years, and Manning is forgiven because he's like the Atlanta Braves. He's always in contention, but he doesn't win enough when it matters, so he's not looked at as a threat and problem to overcome.

    Race would do it.

    Obviously, racial tensions on the worst pro sports team are much milder than in many other parts of society. Still, they're there. I recall some Patriot -- Fauria? -- expressing pleased surprise that there were NO racial separations on the Patriots, by way of contrast to his previous teams, where white guys typically ate with whites and blacks with blacks.

    That's a very astute view of how the hatred of sports dynasties work. It is weird, however, that compared to the Pats, I see very little collective hatred of the Giants or Steelers outside of fans of their respective divisional rivals. But then again, the Giants are a boom or bust team, and Pittsburgh hasn't been quite as consistent as the Pats.

    Very appropriate analogy, Deus. It just cracks me up to think of the SB36 victory over the Rams when Kraft stated "tonight we are all Patriots," and the whole world happily ate it up.

    I suppose they were getting sick of the Rams at that point though, so we were the ultimate underdog. I understand the fact that no one wants to see the same competitive team year in and year out, but some of the comments that are made about him actually being "evil" and "hated" etc, are ridiculous.

    It's almost like I want to throw out some pics from the Best Buddies event every year, but feel as though I shouldn't even bother wasting my time.

    A guy like Incognito has developed quite a reputation for being an ass over the years though, but the main difference is that he's not in the spotlight like Brady is, I suppose.

    On a less relevant note, "Richie Incognito" sounds like the name of a villain from a mediocre spy film made in the late 70s.

    I can assure you that Pittsburgh is hated in much the same manner that the Patriots are hated. It's just at a simmer rather than a constant boil, likely because the Patriots are still viewed as the gold standard.

    As for the Giants, they've never really been a dynasty, and their last two SB wins have both been kind of flukey. I just don't think people have really had time to allow the hatreds to ferment.

    I could have it all wrong, of course, but that's the impression I get from watching, and playing, sports over the course of my life

    ...or a very poorly made porno flick.

    I somehow imagine the character of "Richie Incognito" to be extremely hairy, although I'm not sure why? Maybe it was just the standard back in the '70's and '80's as far as porno movies are involved? You had to have a lot of body hair and very prominent mustache.

    No Mood
    I'm thinking that with the Hernandez case still popping up in the news, especially when Pouncey was served a subpoena after the Pats/Fins game, that Miami wants nothing to do with that sort of PR nightmare. If Incognito DID threaten a player, his family, and use ethnic slurs, etc, then he needs to be isolated from the team as quickly as possible.

    This whole episode casts a VERY bad light on the failed leadership of the entire organization, from front office down to the team captains. That things got so bad that one of their own players felt the need to clear out for his and his family's safety, then Miami deserves the massive lawsuit that is likely headed their way.
